Alexander Rybak releases a new Christmas Album; Christmas Tales

For Alexander Rybak, it has been Christmas time since midsummer. This is when he started working on his new album ´Christmas Tales´. Using American Christmas Carols as a background theme, Alexander has selected his all time favourites, giving them a personal twist. On his album ´Visa vid vindens ängar´ (2011), Alexander worked closely with producer Knut Bjørnar Asphol. Asphol is also an important participant on this album, lending his special talent for rich details and inviting an amazing vocal- and brass group who adds a wonderful, rich palette to the album. Other guests are Didrik Solli-Tangen and Annsofi, who contribute on two different duets. The duet featuring Didrik is written by Alexander especially for this album. Christmas Tales is an album for the whole family, reminding us of the joy of being together during Christmas, singing and playing.

This year, Alexander is a new and welcomed guest at our most traditional Christmas tour, Silent Night. The tour starts the 26th of November, and will be playing all over Norway.
