Norah Jones shares new recording of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Norah Jones has just shared a brand new recording of the seasonal favourite Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

The single comes from the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter’s newly expanded 24-track deluxe edition of I Dream of Christmas, the holiday album she released in 2021.

Listen to the single here:

“When I was trying to figure out which direction to take, the original songs started popping in my head,” Jones said in a statement. “They were all about trying to find the joys of Christmas, catching that spark, that feeling of love and inclusion that I was longing for during the rest of the year. Then there are all the classics that have that special nostalgia that can hit you no matter who or where you are in life. It was hard to narrow down, but I picked favourite classics that I knew I could make my own.”

The deluxe edition of I Dream of Christmas features 11 additional songs, including bonus tracks and live performances.

The original studio album was produced by Leon Michels and features drummer Brian Blade, bassists Tony Scherr and Nick Movshon, pedal steel player Russ Pahl, cellist Marika Hughes, trumpeter Dave Guy and trombonist Raymond Mason.
