Six-time Grammy® nominated singer, songwriter and producer Kaskade today announced that he will release a full-length Christmas album Friday, November 24th on his own Arkade label in partnership with Sony Music International | Columbia Germany.
Kaskade contributes vocals to two tracks on the album, “Cold December” and “Winter Wonderland”.
“I’ve always loved Christmas music dating back to my days” said Kaskade. “All these years later, I’ve been able to put my own collection of Holiday music together and am really excited to have it out this season. I love the challenge of taking music that I have grown up with and producing it in a way that is new and modern.”
The 13-song collection features Kaskade’s unique interpretation of holiday classics such as “Deck The Halls”, “Silent Night”, and “The First Noel”, as well as new original material and collaborations with Late Night Alumni, Erika, Debra Fotheringham, Skylar Grey, Ilsey, Gabrielle Current, Kayrae, Jane XØ, and Dia Frampton.
Kaskade added: “To add my imprint to classic songs is fun for me, and my die-hard fans will be familiar with the ways I make them my own. Some of the songs are huge departures from the original style, while others stick within the main framework. Add that to a few originals and…I am really proud of what I have created here. Christmas is fun… so is the music, and I’m here to bust up all the preconceived notions about what it should sound like. The mood of the season is about imagination, hope and love. This is for everyone, regardless of what you believe.”
Kaskade is about to wrap up a handful of Redux tour dates. He recently announced that he will close out the year with special shows at The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. This will mark his second New Year’s Eve show at the venue.
