New Grace Song Featured On ‘Holidays Rule’ Album

New Grace Song Featured On ‘Holidays Rule’ Album

Grace will have a brand new song, “Christmas Moon”, on the new Holidays Rule 2 compilation, coming out this fall on Capitol Records. The album is available for pre-order now.

Holidays Rule Volume 2, a joyful and diverse collection of seasonal music featuring an array of convivial contributions from across the musical spectrum, will be released by Capitol Records on October 13. The pre-order launches today along with the release of “Wonderful Christmastime,” a spirited new version of Paul McCartney’s perennial favorite that was performed by McCartney, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in December 2016. “Wonderful Christmastime” is available today to stream, download, or receive immediately with album pre-order.

The set is a sequel to the popular 2012 collection, and features 16 new recordings by beloved artists including Norah Jones, Grace Potter, Rosanne Cash, The Decemberists, and Lake Street Dive, alongside up and coming artists such as Barns Courtney, Albin Lee Meldau, Calum Scott, Kandace Springs, and Vera Blue. The album delves into an unusually rich assemblage of Pop, R&B, Rock, Americana, Jazz, Mariachi, and more.

Holidays Rule Volume 2 lets today’s artists put their own mark on tradition by offering wonderfully fresh takes on holiday chestnuts old and new (Barns Courtney and Lennon Stella remake “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”; Judah & The Lion reinvents “The Christmas Song”; Albin Lee Meldau delivers a soulful version of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”), reframing songs for the holiday season (The Decemberists cover Big Star’s “Jesus Christ”; Norah Jones covers Horace Silver’s “Peace”; MUNA covers McCartney’s “Pipes of Peace”), unearthing rarities (Kandace Springs delivers a glistening new version of “(Everybody’s Waitin’ For) The Man With The Bag”; Rosanne Cash dusts off Louis Jordan’s “May Ev’ry Day Be Christmas”; Lake Street Dive offers up the cheeky novelty song “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas”), and contributing new songs to the seasonal repertoire (Grace Potter’s original song “Christmas Moon”).

They remain open to collaboration on future projects and there will be ongoing updates on their charitable work, new releases and live events, in upcoming newsletters.
