Glee Christmas Album Vol. 2 due next month

Just in time for the holidays, the Glee franchise will release “Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Volume 2” on November 15.

The Glee cast offer their own renditions of such Christmas staples as “Little Drummer Boy,” “Let It Snow” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” as well as their interpretation of Band Aid’s 1984 hit “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”

New cast members, Lindsay Pearce, Alex Newell and Damian McGinty - from the wildly popular show The Glee Project - are featured on “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and “Blue Christmas,” along with Samuel Larson accompanying the Glee cast on “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.”

Among the 12 tracks are two original songs: “Extraordinary Merry Christmas” and “Christmas Eve With You,” both written by Adam Anders, Peer Astrom and Shelly Peiken.

Standout tracks thus far from Glee’s season 3, Tom Jones’ “It's Not Unusual.” “Somewhere” (from the musical West Side Story), The Go-Go’s “We Got The Beat” and “You Can't Stop The Beat” (from the musical Hairspray), have added to Glee’s ground-breaking record for the most charted songs by a single act in the Billboard Hot 100 chart history.

To date over 35 million Glee songs have been digitally downloaded, with over 11 million albums sold worldwide.

Glee will return with new episodes on Tuesday, November 1 at 8PM ET/PT.
