Title - Itís Christmas All Over [Red Vinyl LP]
Artist - Goo Goo Dolls
For those unaware, just in time for the holidays, Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling band Goo Goo Dolls have officially announced they will release a deluxe edition of Itís Christmas All Over on November 5th, 2021 via Warner Records.
The twelve-song LP marks a special version of the bandís first-ever Christmas record, featuring the brand new original track One Last Song About Christmas and a never-before-heard cover of Iíve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm, a holiday staple that was made famous by Dean Martin.
Alongside the deluxe edition of Itís Christmas All Over, the band is also offering exclusive merch including a red vinyl LP, a limited edition drinkware set that includes a set of whiskey glasses, whiskey rocks, a Tom Collins recipe glass and Christmas All Over cocktail napkins.

Today we are reviewing the wondrous red vinyl 10-track LP (a Barnes & Noble Limited Edition Exclusive, no less), chock full of the spirit of Christmas, the album righteously delivers on its promise to deliver a much-needed loving hug of warmth and hope to 2021/22!
Creatively put together during lockdown this year, Side A of this vinyl LP opens on the upbeat and Oasis-esque Christmas All Over Again and the swarmy, old-time hipsway of Shake Hands With Santa Claus, continues on with the all-embracing This Is Christmas, rounding out on the gently rocking Christmas Donít Be Late and the young child vocalization of Better Days.
Flipping the vinyl LP over and Side B brings us the drunk, end of night, coal-slinging, sing-along You Ainít Getting Nothiní and a warmly beautiful rendition of both holiday staples Let It Snow and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, the album closing on a breathy Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and a rousingly upbeat The Christmas Party (Feat. The Union Square 5).
Both One Last Song About Christmas (a ballad that balances melancholy lyricism with instrumentals that channel the warmth and nostalgia of classic holiday favorites) and Iíve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm (feat. Kudisan Kai) can be found on the newly expanded, Deluxe Edition of the CD.
Produced by frontman John Rzeznik in addition to the bandís longtime collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jimmy McGorman, Itís Christmas All Over initially arrived in late 2020.
ďI wanted to write a song about the people and places most of us donít see or think about at Christmas time,Ē says Rzeznik about One Last Song About Christmas.
ďTo tell an unorthodox love story about slipping through the cracks and celebrating a very different type of holiday, while finding a bittersweet joy that carries them through the season.Ē
The digital deluxe album and limited edition drinkware set will be available to purchase in the bandís store here on November 5th, 2021.
