Rogers first announced the album version of the songs earlier this October.
“Cher and I decided this was the year. The year of our Christmas albums. I’m so thrilled to say my debut album HAVE YOU HEARD OF CHRISTMAS? is out November 3rd on @capitolrecords,” he wrote on Instagram. “Produced by @leland and @gabelopez, this features all of the songs performed with @henkiskidu from my special and yearly show as well as three brand new songs. In a couple weeks I’ll tell you about some incredible artists who feature on the tracks.”
Now, it seems, he’s started teasing one of those artists.
He’s been dropping secret Easter Eggs about the album and songs that will release, announcing the first single on October 4, in a post where he wrote, “Can’t tell you guys too much info yet but you should check your Instagram Friday. Sound good?”
However, if you’re a talented detective, you might have noticed that he capitalized certain letters in the post, spelling out the name of his first single “Also It’s Christmas,” which is now streaming.
Yesterday, Rogers started posting even more clues about the upcoming album, including some hints at who might be featured on a song he’s releasing this Friday.
In a post, Rogers showed an evidence board with the date Oct 20, “HIM???” lots of pictures, and, most interestingly, some quotes that also happen to be names of MUNA songs, including “What I Want,” “The One That Got Away,” and “I Know a Place.”
Now, Rogers has released a short video teasing his new song and video coming out this Friday, and has revealed that his collaborator will be MUNA! We are gagged!!! We already love all the songs featured in the Christmas special, and we cannot wait to hear what he’s cooked up with one of our favorite bands!
Rogers also announced an album tour where he will be traveling across the country singing his modern Christmas classics. The tour starts December 1 in Philadelphia, before visiting ten other American cities, plus Toronto, through December 23, when he’ll end the tour with a show in New York City. Merry Christmas, indeed!
