Christmas is the twenty-seventh studio album by American singer Cher. It was released on October 20, 2023, through Warner Brothers and is her first album with original material in ten years, following Closer to the Truth (2013) as well as her first ever Christmas album.
Cher first announced a plan to record a Christmas album in 2018.However, no progress was made at this time, and she did not comment again on this album until hinting at its production in July 2023, when she announced that she was already working on material for it. She shared on Twitter that she never wanted to do a festive album but it came out “as good as any record” she has made. In an interview in the UK with Good Morning Britain last September Cher expressed her pride over the record, saying that it is “not your mother’s Christmas album” but a Cher Christmas album.
The project features guest appearances by Darlene Love, Michael Bublé, Tyga, Cyndi Lauper, and Stevie Wonder. Cher shared her excitement over the fact that there are “millions of people” on it and that she never released an album with duets.According to Cher, the decision to include guest artists was “last-minute”.
