Rod Stewart Debuts ‘Silent Night’ From His ‘Merry Christmas, Baby’ Holiday Album

Rod Stewart is getting in the holiday spirit with his upcoming album, ‘Merry Christmas, Baby,’ and he’s giving fans a first listen from the disc with his version of the classic ‘Silent Night.’

The track finds Stewart backed by a soft guitar at the beginning as he tenderly delivers the opening notes of the song, though the track adds more elements as it continues. At one point, the singer is backed by what sounds like a children’s choir, and the choral backing continues until it comes to its conclusion. The song is currently streaming at Rolling Stone’s website.

“I have always been tempted to do a Christmas album,” says Stewart in a press release. “And now that I once again have young children, the timing couldn’t be better. Additionally, ‘Merry Christmas, Baby’ gave me a chance to reunite with [producer] David Foster.”

The album, due Oct. 30, also finds Rod sharing vocals with Michael Buble, Cee Lo Green, Mary J. Blige, and delivering a “virtual duet” with Ella Fitzgerald on a track. The disc is currently available in standard and special “fan pack” editions here.
