Bookmark and Share

All I want for Christmas is new music. Music is one of the greatest and most powerful Christmas traditions. Whether you listen to it all year or only in December, Christmas music is a unique genre, and new albums are released in the genre every year. Looking for some new holiday jams for the car ride home or to play while cooking dinner? Look no further. Here are five new Christmas albums from artists from many backgrounds, so you should find one that works for you.

Few voices are more recognizable during the Christmas season than Bing Crosby. While Crosby died over 40 years ago, his music still plays in homes and stores across the nation each December. With the new album, "Bing at Christmas," Crosby's original recordings are set to new arrangements performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.

This album will appeal to people of all ages, with the old-timey feel of Crosby's performances combined with high-quality recordings of the symphony. An updated version of "White Christmas" features a performance by Pentatonix and gives new life to Irving Berlin's iconic tune. This is the type of album you'll want to listen to while sipping hot cocoa by the fire.
