The UK’s favourite festive duo Michael Ball and Alfie Boe are joining forces once more for a dazzling new Decca album Together At Christmas. The lead track Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas is out now, in anticipation of the album release on November 20. The team have also announced that Michael and Alfie are planning to head out on a 13-date arena tour in November 2021, culminating in a date at London's O2 Arena on December 19.
Keeping the festive spirit alive is arguably more vital than ever this year, and Decca are hoping that the duo’s incredible voices have the ability to instil some festive cheer. The forthcoming record will feature multiple Christmas songs including It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas, Silent Night and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas covered by the famous vocalists, plus they’ve taken on the challenge of penning an original Christmas tune, in the form of My Christmas Will Be Better Than Yours. Another treat is the collaboration with one of Decca’s shining stars, Gregory Porter, on The Christmas Song.
Decca’s campaign manager Jenni Champion says, “It wouldn’t be Christmas without Ball & Boe! Together At Christmas is everything you’d expect from Michael and Alfie, plus so much more. It’s clear the guys missed each other and that they want to cheer their fans up. We’ve had so much enjoyment coming up with a fun campaign full of Christmas magic and laughter so that everyone can enjoy this album – however they’re spending Christmas this year!”
Together At Christmas follows the phenomenal success of the duo’s previous three duet albums, their debut Together, which became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas number one spot, Together Again which brought the pair yet another number one album in 2017, and Back Together which landed them the number two spot in the charts.
