First Christmas Album Ever by The Monkees On Vinyl LP!
A New Collection Of Holiday Standards & New Classics!


The Monkees celebrate the season with their first holiday album, featuring new vocals by Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork. The late Davy Jones' unmistakable voice - taken from vintage recordings - also appears on two songs. On Christmas Party, The Monkees put their unmistakable vocal stamp on a wide array of classic Christmas tracks, from the R&B holiday standard "Merry Christmas, Baby," to Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime" and Wizzard's yuletide classic "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day."

After helming The Monkees' critically acclaimed studio album Good Times! in 2016, Grammy® and Emmy®-winning songwriter Adam Schlesinger reprises his role as producer on Christmas Party. All of the album's 13 songs were recorded in 2018, with "Silver Bells" and "Mele Kalikimaka" using classic Davy Jones vocals from the archives combined with newly recorded music. Much like Good Times!, Christmas Party features songs newly written for the band by a group of talented songwriters, including Rivers Cuomo of Weezer ("What Would Santa Do") and Andy Partridge of XTC ("Unwrap You At Christmas"). Schlesinger and celebrated author Michael Chabon teamed up to write "House Of Broken Gingerbread." Guitarists Peter Buck of R.E.M. and Scott McCaughey of The Minus 5 play on two songs - a cover of Big Star's "Jesus Christ" and the album's title track, which they wrote together.

Christmas Party also includes two songs with Michael Nesmith on lead vocals, with each track being produced by one of his sons. His take on the yuletide classic "The Christmas Song" was produced by Christian Nesmith while "Snowfall" was helmed by Jonathan Nesmith.
