Nashville, TN (October 29, 2021)
Multi-GRAMMY nominated artist Matthew West rings in the holidays with his new full-length album, We Need Christmas. In addition to his new album, West will be celebrating the season in December with his We Need Christmas Tour. This project marks West’s third Christmas album, and it is comprised of classics reimagined in his own style as well as original songs such as the title track and the Thanksgiving 2020 overnight sensation “Gobble Gobble.”
We Need Christmas Playlists:
“These past couple of years have felt like peace is in short supply, hope has been hard to find, and love and joy have been lost for so many,” shares Matthew West about the inspiration for his new project. “Christmas is a time when our hearts can be powerfully reminded that the peace, hope, love, and joy we all need can still be found in a savior. We Need Christmas combines my love of the classics like ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas,’ with my love for writing and composing songs I hope will be new classics for years to come. Holiday albums give me a chance to be eclectic in musical styling, and hey, it was even fun to get dressed up in a tuxedo! My wife said I clean up good. So this Christmas album is already a win for me!”
Along with his tour, West’s non-profit PopWE will be partnering up for some unique holiday giving back campaigns throughout the next two months. During the Thanksgiving season, PopWE is joining forces with Samaritan’s Purse to help provide meals for the hungry around the world. Into the Christmas season, they will be searching for families and individuals who need Christmas and will surprise them with a financial gift to help during the season.
