Rod Stewart has released his first ever Christmas album “Merry Christmas, Baby” on Verve Music Group. The album includes guest appearances from Michael Buble, Mary J. Blige, Cee-Lo Green and a very special virtual duet with Ella Fitzgerald. In honor of this release, Splash Magazines Worldwide is giving on lucky reader the Ultimate Rod Stewart package valued at $140.
The winner of the Rod Stewart giveaway will not only receive the “Merry Christmas, Baby” CD, but they will also receive Rod: The Autobiography, a Rod Stewart t-shirt and the three disc box-set “ Reason To Believe: The Complete Mercury Studio Recordings.” This will make a great gift for any Rod Stewart fan.
“Merry Christmas, Baby” is an album of standards and traditional songs that find Rod joined by a number of A-list guests, starting with Michael Bublé, who duets with Rod on Winter Wonderland. We Three Kings is a duet with Mary J. Blige; and the title tune Merry Christmas, Baby is a duet with Cee-Lo Green featuring New Orleans favorite son, Trombone Shorty. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! features Dave Koz on saxophone and What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? is a very special virtual duet with Ella Fitzgerald featuring Chris Botti.
Any fan of Rod Stewart will be ecstatic to add Reason To Believe-The Complete Mercury Studio Recordings to their music collection as this is the most complete look at Rod's brilliant 1969-1974 Mercury period ever assembled! His LPs The Rod Stewart Album, Gasoline Alley, Every Picture Tells a Story, Never a Dull Moment and Smiler join non-album rarities including five tracks unissued in the U.S.
The highly anticipated Rod: The Autobiography was just released in October and this is sure to be a book that you won’t be able to put down.
“I thought long and hard before committing to write my book. It is a funny old thing telling my life story but I truly intend to hold nothing back,” Rod said. “I’ve had quite a life, known some extraordinary people and had some amazing experiences. I’ve waited all this time, until my 50th year in the business and realize I can no longer put it off.”
