Robert Glasper, the renowned musical artist, has recently released his new Holiday album titled “In December.” This project offers a unique blend of classic carols along with three fresh original tracks and is exclusively available on Apple Music.
“In December” features some special guest appearances from notable artists such as PJ Morton, Sevyn Streeter, Tarriona ‘Tank’ Ball, Cynthia Erivo, Alex Isley, Andra Day, and The Baylor Project. Glasper’s covers of holiday classics on this album provide a fresh perspective on these timeless tunes, offering insight into his musical creativity. For instance, Tony-winning Cynthia Erivo’s rendition of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” transforms the song into a dark and airy neo-soul experience, while Alex Isley’s interpretation of “Joy to the World” channels the essence of a Stevie Wonder ballad.
The original tracks on the album promise to be equally captivating, offering listeners a unique glimpse into Robert Glasper’s musical vision.
This holiday season, get into the festive spirit by giving “In December” a listen and enjoying the creative reimagining of these holiday classics.
