Cher's First-Ever Christmas Album Out October 20

(Warner Records) Cher fans can count on a very merry, very bright and very rock and roll holiday season this year with the official confirmation that her much talked about new album, Christmas, will be available October 20th on Warner Records. The first single, "DJ Play A Christmas Song" is available NOW.

Christmas, Cher's first new studio album in five years, includes 13 songs - several holiday classics and four originals. It also has a star-studded list of musical besties including Darlene Love, Stevie Wonder, Michael Bublé, Cyndi Lauper and Tyga.

"DJ Play A Christmas Song," the first single, was written by Sara Hudson (Dua Lipa, Katy Perry, Troye Sivan) and her team who contributed four new songs for the album. (Full Track listing below)

Recorded primarily in LA and London, Christmas was produced by longtime collaborator Mark Taylor ("Believe"). Songs include beloved superstar duet classics "What Christmas Means To Me" with Stevie Wonder and "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" with Darlene Love. (Darlene first recorded the song with Phil Spector and a l7-year-old Cher singing background vocals); in addition to a haunting version of "Home" written and sung with Michael Bublé.

"I never say this about my own records but I'm really proud of this one. It is one of the most amazing highlights of my career," commented Cher.

One of the many highlights is a duet by Cher and Stevie Wonder of Stevie's "What Christmas Means to Me." Commented Cher, "Every time I hear that harmonica, I'm a teenager again. It's a personal dream come true for me to record this song with Stevie."

Two other standouts include an unexpected pairing with Tyga on another Sara Hudson song called "Drop Top Sleigh Ride" produced by Alexander Edwards, Mike Crook and Ryan OG, and the magnificent "Angels in the Snow" plus "Put A Little Holiday In Your Heart" with Cyndi Lauper.

Cher is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of her multi-platinum Grammy-winning "Believe" with the release of Believe 25th Anniversary (Deluxe Edition) on Warner Records.
