Shania Twain Joins Michael Buble on New Christmas Album
Shania Twain has returned to the recording studio, if only to finish a duet with fellow Canadian Michael Buble. During a video chat with fans last week, the pop singer revealed he’s working on a Christmas album that includes a “bouncy” version of ‘White Christmas’ with the country star.
“I wanted to make the quintessential Christmas record,” Buble said in the chat. “I wanted to make a record that would outlive me, and I wanted to do for people what Bing Crosby did for me. He introduced me to the world of jazz and melody.”
Twain shares a connection beyond a familiar homeland with the three-time Grammy winner. Producer David Foster is in charge of the project for Buble. That’s the same David Foster that helped Twain move past some of her vocal self-doub during an emotional episode of ‘Why Not? With Shania Twain’ on OWN last month. Although she’s recorded holiday music in the past, Twain has never released a Christmas album of her own.
Buble talked like the song is finished, and also revealed other tracks on the holiday project to be ‘Blue Christmas’ and ‘All I Want For Christmas is You.’ “I didn’t want to be hip or edgy. I just wanted to make a really sweet Christmas record that kids can grow up with,” he says. There’s no official release date yet, but the singer promises the album will be timely.
