More info about the album from Cdon.com:
Ever since midsummer there has been a Christmas mood in a studio in Gjerdrum. Alexander Rybak has been working on his Christmas album, and the result is a warm, organic and humorous album.
The theme is American Christmas Carrols and Alexander has picked his absolute favorites, and added his own style to it. He has rearranged all of the songs and he plays all the strings.
Alexander has worked closely with the producer of his previous album Visa vid vindens ängar (2011), and Knut Bjørnar Asphol has contributed with a good ear for rich details and he has invited a fantastic vocal- and wind instrument orchestra which richly colors the album.
Two guests also took the train to Nittedal, Annsofi Pettersen and Didrik Solli-Tangen who contributes on two duets. The song with Didrik is written by Rybak for this album. A Christmas album for the whole family that reminds us of the joy of being together and celebrating Christmas, singing together and playing together. The harmony is in the front seat while the melancholy is in the back.
Alexander always keeps a busy schedule, while working on his Christmas album in Norway, he`s been working and performing all over Europe. In October he is releasing a new single for the European market.
Rybak has throughout the year held concerts in Ireland, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Belgium, The Netherlands, Belorussia, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine, Aserbadjian, Denmark and Sweden. In Norway he has played for sold out venues all over the country together with local culture schools, and he has had success with this year`s summer show together with Bettan and Didrik.
This year Alexander is a new and welcome guest on the Christmas tour Silent Night, which has long traditions in Norway. They will be touring all over the country starting on November 27.
