2018 holiday release. Eric Clapton's first ever full-length studio holiday album, Happy Xmas, is on Clapton's Bushbranch Records/Surfdog Records. Happy Xmas is Clapton's 24th studio album and his first since 2016's I Still Do. It mixes instantly recognizable holiday classics with lesser-known unique titles along with an original new song "For Love On Christmas Day." The album also features cover art illustration by Clapton himself. Clapton's bluesy spins on the classics are quite a delight: "White Christmas," "Away in a Manger," "Jingle Bells (In Memory of Avicii)," "Silent Night," "Merry Christmas Baby," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and more (including some obscure holiday tunes and a new original, too).
