Twelve-time JUNO award winner Michael Bublé will hold his annual Christmas special on December 10, 2015. The native of Burnaby, BC, will bring us some holiday cheer for the fifth time. Musical guests announced on the Christmas in Hollywood extravaganza are Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Tori Kelly, and his fellow Canadian diamond recording artist Céline Dion! Plus, comedy segments set in classic Hollywood locations will involve Blake Shelton, Jay Leno, and Montreal’s William Shatner!
Michael says that his next album, in the works, while maintaining his big band, swing sound and contemporary standards will include some original pop songs and that Max Martin is involved. Sweden’s Martin is responsible for over twenty number one singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Michael says that his most recent album To Be Loved was his favourite of all that he has made. It was the record he made for himself. At double platinum in Canada, it was not his biggest hit. He says now he wants to make a record for the people. It will be his ninth studio album.
