Saturday, John Zorn's exclusive album art (and misc.) designer, the lovely and talented Heung-Heung Chin, posted the new cover art (right) and the following descriptive information on her Facebook page:
The biggest surprise of the year is John Zorn’s beautiful Christmas CD. Zorn has hand picked seven of his favorite Christmas songs, penned two lovely originals and they are performed here in classic Dreamers style with plenty of exciting solos, exotic colors and catchy lyricism. Filled with a joyful holiday spirit, innocence, a touch of nostalgia and a charming lyricism, this is music for all ages that will make you smile with delight from the very first notes. As a special treat, vocalist Mike Patton delivers an intimate and heartfelt rendition of Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, making A Dreamers Christmas an instant classic, and an essential CD for any contemporary Christmas celebration.
PICTURE DISC ALSO AVAILABLE ON HI QUALITY LIMITED EDITION VINYL.
Guess we'll have to wait a bit longer for the tracklist and official release date, but I'm guessing we'll see this one sometime in late September or early October.
