Jamie Cullum officially kicks off Christmas 2022 today (October 22nd) with the announcement of his new festive album, The Pianoman At Christmas: The Complete Edition.
Scheduled to drop Friday, November 19th via Island Records, the deluxe album serves as the follow up to last year’s critically acclaimed The Pianoman At Christmas Part 1, with its second part set to feature 11 covers of classic Christmas songs, as well as two original tracks, including lead single Christmas Don’t Let Me Down, which debuts today!
Referencing the past whilst taking inspiration from the present, the record sees Cullum team up with London jazz innovators Kansas Smitty’s, composer and producer The Vernon Spring and acclaimed LA-based jazz singer Lady Blackbird to produce a sophisticated body of work that looks set to become the perfect winter soundtrack for families to play at Christmas.
