With less than two months to go until Christmas, Grammy-winning musician, producer and author, as well as founding member of hard rock bands Alter Bridge, Creed and Tremonti, Mark Tremonti has shared a claymation music video for his original holiday song “Christmas Morning.”
The track is from Tremonti’s new “Christmas Classics New & Old,” now available to stream and purchase everywhere, including www.tremontichristmas.com. The video, created by Ollie Jones, follows a father who finds Santa’s naughty/nice list and ventures to bring it back to him.
“Christmas Classics New & Old” is Tremonti’s interpretation of nine holiday classics and one original song. After the success of his interpretation of songs Frank Sinatra made famous on his album “Tremonti Sings Sinatra,” Mark decided to partner up with the orchestra from that album to work on the holiday album. From the opening horns of “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” to the slow fade of the Donny Hathaway classic “This Christmas,” Tremonti showcases the music that was the bedrock of his childhood holidays. His interpretations of songs like “Jingle Bells,” “The First Noel” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” find their place among the many great versions that preceded them. “O Holy Night” is one of Mark’s personal favorites and finds new life in the arrangement by producer Carey Deadman.
