PJ Morton will get you in the Christmas spirit with the release of Christmas with PJ Morton, extending his beloved holiday album through brand new takes on a couple of classics: a shimmering, string-laden rendition of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" (feat. Sheléa) and a strutting soul inversion of "White Christmas," full of horns and the hope for some snow in New Orleans.
As The New Yorker says, "Getting in a festive mood isn't a tall order with Morton's buttery-smooth vocals coming through the speakers," and when Christmas with PJ Morton first came out in 2018 it quickly became the year's "surprise stocking stuffer" (Entertainment Weekly). Between a reggae "Winter Wonderland," a funk flip of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" (feat. Stokley) and a New Orleans bounce arrangement of "This Christmas" (feat. HaSizzle), Morton delivered a fresh experience of seasonal staples, winning the "unofficial award for best R&B Christmas album" (Variety).
The original songs on Christmas with PJ Morton include "Peyton's Lullaby (Right Away)" - written by Morton to his eight-year-old daughter - and "Do You Believe," which features Yolanda Adams and recently appeared on Morton's chart-topping, BET & Dove Award-nominated album, Gospel According to PJ.
