The album also includes new Christmas songs – First Christmas, Six Days After Christmas (Happy New Year) and Heart of Christmas.
Cliff Richard said: “I have always loved being in recording studios ever since Studio 2, Abbey Road, in 1958. I recorded this album in Criteria Studios in Miami Florida – 4,427 miles away from Abbey Road and once again I felt that I was in a world of my own! I had the help of two producers, Sam Hollander and Chris Walden. They guided me through the “well known” Christmas songs and freed me to sing them my way. They had differing approaches to the songs that I asked them to produce for me, and they gave this album the dynamics that I had hoped for. This album is not just mine. It belongs to all of us involved in creating it and I hope that we add a little something special to your Christmas season.”
His first Christmas album since the release of Cliff at Christmas 19 years ago in 2003, Cliff is famous for owning Christmas in three decades with the release of No. 1 hits Mistletoe And Wine in 1988, Saviour’s Day in 1990 and The Millennium Prayer in 1999/2000.
Christmas With Cliff was recorded in 2022 in Criteria Studios, Miami and produced by Sam Hollander and Chris Walden.
