Renowned Montreal vocalist and songwriter Florence K is offering a holiday treat to her fans this season with A New Christmas, an EP comprised of six brand new, all-original Christmas soon-to-be-standards. Set for release on Nov. 17 through Universal Music Canada, Florence K co-wrote four of the songs with veteran Canadian hit-maker Vince Degiorgio, with two duets contributed by famed Montreal DJ/producer Stefie Shock. Sung in both English and French, A New Christmas displays Florence K’s appeal in both languages, underscored by the EP’s overall festive and jazzy arrangements.
“Some of the greatest tunes in the world, in both the jazz and the pop universe are Christmas songs. I wanted to give myself a shot at writing some new melodies that people could sing along to and whistle during the Holiday season,” said Florence K.
A New Christmas became a family affair for Florence K when she invited her two younger sisters, Éléonore and Ariane Lagacé, to sing backing vocals on four of the tracks. Co-produced by Florence K, Nick Petrowski and Stefie Shock, and recorded at Montreal’s unique Mixart Studios, A New Christmas also features Ben Riley on drums, Kiko Osorio on percussions, Domenic Romanelli on bass, Guy Kaye on guitar, along with a full brass section.
