Multi-platinum selling vocal group Pentatonix has released a new album under RCA records titled “The Best of Pentatonix Christmas.” The three-time Grammy Award winners included their own rendition of the classic Bee Gees hit “God Only Knows” as part of the album. See the video below:
The video is also Christmas-themed. Pentatonix sings a snappy version of the song while being surrounded by Christmas tress and falling snow.
“The Best of Pentatonix Christmas” features 15 holiday tracks from the group’s repertoire plus four new songs. According to Music Mayhem Magazine, a special version of “Do You Hear What I Hear” is also included in the album. The post-humous tribute to the departed singer will feature vocals that Houston recorded back in 2004.
There will also be collaborations with Jazmine Sullivan, Tori Kelly (Winter Wonderland/Don’t Worry Be Happy), Kelly Clarkson (Grown Up Christmas List), Maren Morris (When You Believe) and Jennifer Hudson (How Great Thou Art).
Pentatonix had previously released three full-length Christmas albums as well as an EP. This year, the group will also go on a Christmas concert tour, where they will be playing the songs form the new album. To date, 16 tour dates have been confirmed in the United States.
The group also announced that they will be taking the tour to Europe. They will also be heading to Asia and Australia next year.
As a Christmas album, many of the songs like “God Only Knows” are faith-centered. Christians from all over the world will be delighted to listen to the songs, which go back to the real essence of the holiday season – the birth of Jesus Christ.
