Judas Priest’s Rob Halford is streaming video of “Donner And Blitzen” as the lead track and first preview of his forthcoming Christmas album, “Celestial.”
Billed as “Rob Halford with Family and Friends,” the album is due out on October 18, and mixes holiday classics with all-new compositions. Halford is joined by support from his brother, Nigel on drums, his nephew, Alex (son of Priest bassist Ian Hill) on bass, his sister, Sue on bells, and the twin guitar tandem of Robert Jones and Jon Blakey.
Among the classic holiday standards the singer takes on are “Deck The Halls”, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Joy To The World” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.”
