HO! HO! HO! / Goo Goo Dolls announce “This Is Christmas”

With 83 shopping days until Santa arrives, The Goo Goo Dolls have today (2 October) released the first single ‘This Is Christmas’, from their upcoming album ‘It’s Christmas All Over’.

The multi-platinum, four-time GRAMMY-nominated band recorded the album during lockdown, with John Rzeznik producing, alongside the band’s frequent collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jimmy McGorman.

John Rzeznik told us: “This album we dedicate to everyone, everywhere, who still believes in hope.

“God knows we need a lot of hope this year.

“From the deepest part of our hearts, Happy holidays from all of us to all of you.”

The album contains classics, such as ‘Let It Snow’ and ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’, a cover of Tom Petty’s ‘It’s Christmas All Over’, as well as some rarities and a jazz-infused medley finale.

Pre-orders and limited edition merchandise is available on the bands website.
