 Free Christmas Joe Bonamassa Album

As the festive season unfolds, blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa extends a special musical offering to his fans by making his Merry Christmas, Baby album available as a free download.

Available for a limited time, the compilation is a unique blend of holiday classics reimagined through Bonamassa’s blues lens, along with original tracks that resonate with his signature style. The 2023 edition is particularly special, as it includes three new tracks, adding fresh vibrancy to this yuletide collection. 

Merry Christmas, Baby, listeners are treated to a diverse range of holiday songs. The album opens with an alternate take on the title track, offering a new perspective on this festive favourite. The Irish rendition of ‘God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen’ and the orchestral version of ‘O Holy Night’ showcase Bonamassa’s ability to blend traditional holiday melodies with his unique blues rock flair. These new additions are accompanied by beloved tracks from previous years, including the soulful ‘Lonesome Christmas’ and the rhythmic ‘Christmas Boogie (One Little Kiss)’. The inclusion of Dion’s ‘Hello Christmas’, featuring Amy Grant, and ‘You Know It’s Christmas’, a collaboration with Bonamassa, adds a joyful spirit to the album.

The full track listing is: ‘Merry Christmas, Baby – Alternate Take (New track)’, ‘Christmas Boogie (One Little Kiss)’, ‘God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen – Irish Rendition (New track)’, ‘Lonesome Christmas’, ‘O Holy Night – Orchestra Rendition (New track)’, ‘Hello Christmas (Dion feat. Amy Grant)’, ‘Santa Claus Is Back In Town’, ‘Bring Back My Cadillac’, ‘Christmas Date Blues’, ‘God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, ‘You Know It’s Christmas (Dion feat. Joe Bonamassa)’, ‘O Holy Night’, ‘Christmas Comes But Once A Year’ and ‘Merry Christmas, Baby’.

The release of Merry Christmas, Baby follows the successful conclusion of Bonamassa’s 2023 tour that spanned 88 shows over 180 days. He and his band travelled a remarkable 65,500 miles, crossing the Pacific twice and the Atlantic six times. Aside from his musical endeavours, Bonamassa continues to make significant contributions through his Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation (KTBA). This year, the foundation has been instrumental in supporting musicians and music education, hosting a range of initiatives including fundraising auctions and the KTBA at Sea IX Cruise Sweepstakes. These efforts have not only helped preserve the blues genre but also ensured that the next generation of musicians receives the support and opportunities they need to thrive.

As 2023 draws to a close, Merry Christmas, Baby is said to stand as a reflection of Joe Bonamassa’s commitment to his craft and his fans. For more information on Joe Bonamassa, his latest releases, and his philanthropic work with KTBA, visit his official website here.
