Justin Bieber Hears XMas Album Jingle; Drop Date Set

Justin Bieber is leaving no stone unturned in his mushrooming music career and will release his first Christmas album Under the Mistletoe, which is where he hopes to see Selena Gomez.

Hard to believe that only three years ago, Bieber was an unknown writing songs in his bedroom and posting them on YouTube.

He’s skyrocketed to fame since then, and he is pulling out all the stops to crank out a top-selling Christmas album.

The album is a seasonal mix of traditional Christmas standards and new holiday music.

Here’s Under the Mistletoe’s track list.

  • Only Thing I Ever Get For Christmas
  • Mistletoe
  • The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire) feat. Usher
  • Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
  • Fa La La feat. Boyz II Men
  • Christmas Love
  • All I Want For Christmas Is You Duet Mariah Carey
  • Drummer Boy feat. Busta Rhymes
  • All I Want Is You
  • Fa La La (acapella) feat. Boyz II Men*
  • Christmas Eve
  • Home This Christmas feat. The Band Perry
  • Silent Night*
  • Pray*
  • Someday at Christmas*

* Denotes Songs on Deluxe Edition Only

He signed top pop songwriters Nasri and Adam Messinger, also known The Messengers from Canada to write and produce the music. Bieber is listed as a co-writer.

The Messengers wrote and produced Justin’s chart-dominating hit “Never Say Never,” the title track from his hit concert film of the same name.

In addition to “Mistletoe,” the Messengers wrote and produced the songs “Christmas Love” and “Home For Christmas” (featuring The Band Perry). Kuk Harrell produced.

The set’s first single “Mistletoe” will be launched worldwide on Oct. 18th.

The accompanying video was shot last week in Franklin, Tenn., by Roman White, who also directed Justin’s “One Less Lonely Girl” video.

Usher will make a guest appearance on “The Christmas Song,” and Boyz II Men, Busta Rhymes and The Band Perry will also contribute.

The album will be available Nov. 1, both as a standard and as a deluxe CD + DVD edition. Both are available for pre-order at amazon.com through TheImproper. Just click the link to the left so you don’t miss out.

The deluxe CD edition includes 25 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage plus the video for “Pray,” along with four additional holiday songs.

There’s no denying Bieber’s runaway popularity. He has more than 13 million Twitter followers and 36 million Facebook friends, according to his label.

To date, he’s sold more than 11 million albums worldwide.
