TRAIN has put their signature sound and spin on holiday classics such as DONNY HATHAWAY’s “This CHRISTMAS” and STEVIE WONDER’s “What CHRISTMAS Means To Me.” Newly recorded versions of ELVIS PRESLEY’s “SANTA Bring My Baby Back (To Me),” JOHN LENNON’s “Happy XMAS (War Is Over)” and the HAWAIIAN-themed CHRISTMAS song written by ROBERT ALEX ANDERSON, “Mele Kalikimaka,” are tracks that can only be found on AMAZON. The album also includes original holiday music sure to become holiday favorites, including the sunny disposition of “CHRISTMAS Island,” the melancholy yearning and country shuffle of “Wait For MARY CHRISTMAS,” and the rhythmic wordplay of “Shake Up CHRISTMAS.”
“Our focus is on bringing great music to our customers, and with distinct vocals, a unique sound and a long history of chart-topping hits, there is no doubt customers will love the first-ever holiday album from TRAIN,” stated AMAZON VP Of Digital Music STEVE BOOM. “We’re excited to bring the GRAMMY award-winning band’s holiday inspired album exclusively to PRIME MUSIC — we know that PRIME members are going to enjoy unlimited listening throughout the holiday season.”
“'CHRISTMAS in TAHOE' has been a part of TRain’s journey that’s been in the making for quite some time,” said lead vocalist PAT MONAHAN. “We couldn’t be more excited that AMAZON presented us with the opportunity to share the album with millions of AMAZON PRIME members, and joined us in an amazing relationship to continue to positively change the way people hear new and current music.”
