Legendary singer and songwriter Paul Anka is ringing in the 2021 holiday season with a truly special celebration: the 10-year anniversary of his beloved Songs of December album. Songs of December (Anniversary Edition) features all the treasured favorites from the original record, plus two new songs for fans to enjoy. It is set for release on November 5, 2021 on Green Hill Productions, a subsidiary of Primary Wave Music. 

First released on November 15, 2011, Songs of December was Anka’s first Christmas album in decades. A true holiday classic, the record features lush romantic versions of popular Christmas songs hand-picked by Anka himself such as “Let It Snow,” “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” All were recorded with a full orchestra in the renowned Capitol Studios and sung by a music legend. In addition to the original tracks, Songs of December (Anniversary Edition) features two additional songs including the brand new “You and I Together (No Gift Could Be Better),” which Anka recorded alongside MAGIC! frontman Nasri, as well as “Winter Wonderland” recorded with Latin superstar Emmanuel

One of the last remaining artists to work with the Rat Pack, Paul Anka turned 80 this year and shows no signs of slowing down. This summer, he released Making Memories, a brand-new collection of reimagined classics and new recordings that included duets from Olivia Newton-JohnIl Divo. The album came on the heels of the 50th anniversary of “My Way,” a new version of the classic hit featuring Michael Bublé and Andrea Bocelli.

Anka, who has been called the “Justin Bieber of his time,” first rose to fame in 1957 when he scored a meeting with Don Costa, the A&R representative for ABC-Paramount Records, playing him a batch of songs that included “Diana.” The song was an enormous success, Anka’s first number one hit, and made him a star at the young age of 15. Since then, Anka has had a hit record in every decade over the last 70 years, from “My Way” and “You Are My Destiny” to “This Is It” and many more. He has inspired and influenced many musicians from Drake to The Weeknd to Michael Bublé to Michael Jackson.
