New Kids on the Block's Joey McIntyre Releasing Christmas Album

New Kids on the Block star Joey McIntyre is getting in the holiday spirit with the release of his new album, Come Home For Christmas, on Tuesday, November 29 on iTunes.

"I've always known I would record a Christmas album," says McIntyre. "These wonderful standards have a warm special place in my heart. I have enjoyed singing them on so many snowy walks through my childhood hometown of Boston and they have soothed my homesickness out in Hollywood during the holidays."

For the holiday standards that make up the self-released Come Home For Christmas, the NKOTB singer set out to record versions of some of his favorites that evoke holiday memories and yet still retain their traditional sound. Highlights include: a fun duet with actor-comedian Mario Cantone on "Baby, It's Cold Outside," the classic "Peace On Earth" on which he is joined by "one of my good friends and mentors," NKOTB's Jordan Knight, and a moving version of "Do You Hear What I Hear?" which features his sister Carol Gallagher, "with whom I sang my first-ever song on stage when I was six-years-old." JOEY produced and arranged the album with long time collaborater Rob Lewis, which was recorded in Los Angeles, Boston and New York.

To celebrate the release of "COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS", JOEY will head home to Boston for the Friday, November 25 Tree Lighting Ceremony at Macy's Boston Downtown Crossing where he'll perform two of the album's tracks. Immediately following the lighting and performance, JOEY will also do an in-store CD signing. The CD will also be available at that Macy's location during the holiday season at Macy's stores. Then on December 1, he'll again be in Boston for the official annual City of Boston Tree Lighting on Boston Common, which is televised throughout New England.
