This Christmas Will Be Extra Switchfoot-y

Summer may have just barely turned to fall but Switchfoot, ever a forward-looking group of guys, are already thinking about winter. Their next album will be the band’s very first Christmas album, called, well, this is our Christmas album. It’ll release November 4, followed by a tour that’ll kick off the weekend after Thanksgiving. Here’s what lead Switchfooter Jon Foreman had to say about the album in a statement. 

“Christmas is an emotional treasure chest for a songwriter to pull from,” lead singer Jon Foreman says. “It’s a season stretched tight with contradictions: celebrating the free gifts of love and grace with an outburst of materialist capitalist consumption. An emotional roller coaster of family and friends, hopes and scars- bringing out the worst and the best in all of us. A project that’s been years in the making, this is our Christmas album, wraps its arms wide around these contradictions.”

The press release says the album will host a mix of classic carols and five original songs, inspired by everything from “the Beach Boys to Black Sabbath.” So, sounds like it should be worth your while. Better get that Christmas shopping going…
