Colbie's third and most recent album, "All Of You", was released last month, debuting at #6 on Billboard's album charts. Her sophomore effort, "Breakthrough", went all the way to #1.
Colbie's naturally warm and laidback style should be a perfect fit for the holidays, as she more than demonstrated with her 2007 holiday single "Mistletoe" and on her 2009 recording of the standard "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", made for the Special Olympics charity effort "A Very Special Christmas 7". At the time of the latter recording, Colbie also recorded the Beach Boys "Merry Christmas Baby" because "something may just come up" but, to the best of my knowledge, that track was never released. Colbie told Billboard at the time that she and "Mistletoe" co-writer Stacy Blue were planning to write some new original Christmas songs as well.
Last year, Colbie teased us with a brief holiday song promoting ABC Family's annual 25 Days of Christmas programming. Personally, I hope "Christmas Album" will feature a full-length fleshed out version of the song (you know, without the "ABC Family" plug at the end), because I thoroughly enjoyed it.
