With multiple GRAMMY nominations and Dove awards, 25 No. 1 songs and over seven million albums sold in his career, Peter Furler (founder of the Newsboys), delivers his debut Christmas record this holiday season from Prescott Records with Naxos and New Day Distribution. Available now at iTunes, Amazon.com, Spotify, and everywhere great Christmas music is found, fans and listeners are already praising Peter Furler Christmas (Feat. David Ian) for its innovative sound textures and beautiful arrangements of classic Christmas songs.

Furler and multi-talented jazz instrumentalist and arranger, David Ian, who produced the album, assemble a unique listening experience with the new recording, showcasing vintage sounds of the holiday season from ancient past to present. The unexpected duo set out to create a vintage, classic and meditative album that hearkened back to the jazz sounds of Vince Guaraldi and the minimalist era of Miles Davis. Using singers and musicians from around the world, including from America, Armenia, Lebanon, Russia and South Africa, Furler and Ian also incorporate traditional orchestration as well as exotic instruments like the Duduk (indigenous Armenian wind instrument) to create an unconventional and introspective Christmas album.

“David and I wanted to create an album that shares the story of Christmas, one that we hope you will enjoy for years to come,” says Furler. “We had in mind for this music to be played while listeners engage in their favorite Christmas traditions, enjoying a warm fire, a quiet dinner party, watching the snow gently fall outside.”

In a time where music listeners are looking for authenticity, Peter Furler Christmas offers not only authentic music and arrangements, but Furler and Ian deliver an astonishing classic Christmas album.

"With a slight departure from my previous two Christmas releases, I wanted to set this collection apart and create a sound that brings the sacred to light,” adds Ian. “We deliberately wanted to bring new life to Christmas songs that are often overlooked.”

With three of the newly arranged traditional carols, “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear,” “Little Drummer Boy” and “What Child Is This” at radio now, Furler also delivers two spoken word tracks accompanied by Ian’s contemplative piano, string and chamber arrangements. These spoken word tracks include the prophesies of the birth of Christ, as well as the Luke account of the Christmas story. They offer a beautiful reminder of the meaning of Christmas and the narrative for all the tracks on the album.

“…Grammy nominated Australian singer / songwriter Peter Furler puts a retro cool spin on the reason for the season with perhaps the best Christmas release for the year,” says Critical Jazz in its 5-star review of the album. “The featured pianist David Ian is far more than an accompanist but instead a magician of counterpoint allowing Furler's introspective yet old school cool style to shine through for a truly memorable release.” AcousticMusic.com agrees that the album is “an unusual but quite appetizing holiday disc.”

With RELEVANT preparing to stream the album for one-week-only on “The Drop” beginning Dec. 2, the full track listing for Peter Furler Christmas (Feat. David Ian) follows:

1) God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
2) It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job

The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness as His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
