It’s the most wonderful time of the year to freshen up your playlists. And who better to help with that than Spotify, which has just added a baker’s dozen new tracks to its Spotify Singles: Holiday Collection. The 13 freshly-recorded version of beloved cold weather classics includes The Lumineers stepping behind vintagemics to cover Darleen Love’s version of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” Adam Lambert singing “Please Come Home for Christmas” and Chelsea Cutler taking Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe” for a spin.
Mexican pop trio Reik do an acoustic take on “Noche de Paz” (Silent Night) in Spanish, Christian group Elevation Worship take on “O Come All Ye Faithful” and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band serve up holiday arrangements of three tracks with their New Orleans musical compatriots — PJ Morgan on “Winter Wonderland,” Boyfriend on “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and Big Freedia on “Make It Jingle Part II.”
“I’ve always loved the song ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’ but I’ve never actually done my own version of it,” Tori Kelly said of the song that she came up with a new arrangement for on the fly while recording at New York’s Electric Lady Studio, according to a statement about joining the now 53-song playlist. “I thought it would be fun to play around with the chords and use live musicians to bring my version to life.”
The list also includes Liam Payne channeling Dean Martin for his version of “Let it Snow.”
