Via Press Release:

Multi-platinum selling artist David Archuleta has announced he will release his brand new Christmas album Winter In The Air on November 2 via The Orchard (digital) and Shadow Mountain Records (physical product). Pre-orders will begin September 10 with fans receiving an instant grat track of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”

Winter In The Air features 12 tracks including Christmas classics such as “White Christmas,” God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Holly Jolly Christmas” and “Mary, Did You Know?” In addition to co-writing the lead single “Christmas Every Day,” David also co-wrote the title track “Winter In The Air” and “He Is Born” for the new set.

“Christmas Every Day” captures the holiday spirit with David’s hopeful and cheery lyrics –

Sidewalks covered up in snow
Lights up everywhere we go
Santa’s on his way,
It’s Christmas every day
Friends all warmed up by the fire,
Sometimes I just wish that
I could always feel this way
Like it’s Christmas every day
If I could have one more gift just for me
Joy to the world it would be
With more Christmases under the tree.

David says: I tend to gravitate to more serious and slower Christmas songs. This time I wanted to have some fun and write a song that would make people happy and feel the joy of the holidays. With the help of Dave Barnes and Cason Cooley, I’m thrilled with how our song “Christmas Every Day” turned out! It makes me happy.

Winter In The Air is David’s second Christmas album since 2009’s Christmas From The Heart release. Christmas From The Heart has made a return to the charts every holiday season and has sold over 250K copies to date. The album peaked at #2 on Billboard’s Holiday chart and Top 30 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart.

In support of the new release, David will kick-off a month long tour beginning November 26 in Los Angeles and will wrap up on December 21 in Utah. Other cities on the trek include New York, Orlando & Nashville. All dates will go on sale Friday, September 7.
