Nashville, Tenn. (October 2, 2020) -- GRAMMY® award-winning Curb | Word Entertainment singer-songwriter and recording artist Francesca Battistelli announces her sophomore Christmas project, This Christmas, unveiling the record's whimsical, hand-sewn and knitted artwork and official track listing for the first time. The brand-new 14-track collection, comprised of both originals and Christmas classics, is set to arrive on Oct. 23, 2020. Fans can pre-order/pre-save/pre-add the album beginning today, Oct. 2, 2020, HERE.

This Christmas serves as the much-anticipated sequel to Battistelli's first Christmas album, Christmas, which released in 2012 to critical acclaim and included the hit song "You're Here" and a fresh spin on the classic, "Marshmallow World."

Anchored by a track list that emphasizes the spiritual nature of the Christmas season one minute with new takes on seasonal favorites the next, Battistelli's second Christmas offering boasts an a cappella rendition of "Silent Night," an orchestral, horn-filled iteration of "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" and a remastered version of "Marshmallow World." Additionally, This Christmas features the chart-topping single, "Messiah," as well as four other originals co-written by Battistelli, including the powerful new single, "Behold Him," available now.

 



"I am so thrilled to get to share these songs with all of you! Making this Christmas album has been an absolute labor of love. We started the process a year-and-a-half ago, and I don't think I have ever enjoyed an album process so much. Through all of the uncertainty this year, it has been a true bright spot to write and record these songs," Battistelli shares. "I know that for many people, the Christmas season can be very difficult. My prayer is that these songs offer hope, glorify Jesus, bring joy (and maybe even some laughter!), and truly bless you, now and in the years to come."

This Christmas marks Battistelli's first new music since her latest studio album, Own It, featuring the hit singles "The Breakup Song" and "Defender." Own It also includes the anthemic "This Could Change Everything," which has been featured on episodes of NBC's Songland, American Ninja Warrior and Amazon Prime's Regular Heroes.
