SINGER, SONGWRITER AND SOFT ROCK ICON LOBO CAPTURES THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT FROM THE GROWN-UP’S POINT OF VIEW WITH THE RELEASE OF TWO CHRISTMAS SONGS
November 5, 2021
Lobo releases two Christmas tracks today, written for the parents and grandparents around the world as they celebrate the holiday season. Originally available only in Europe, “Late Christmas Eve” and “A Big Kid’s Christmas” are now on all major streaming services as an EP via Time Life.
“The holidays are special for everyone, from kids on up through grandparents, so I wanted to write something a little different: songs from an adult’s point of view that tell the story of how a lot of us see Christmas,” Kent LaVoie (who records as Lobo) explains. “’A Big Kid’s Christmas’ is about grandma and grandpa and what Christmas means to them after all these years together. And ‘Late Christmas Eve’ reflects that moment when you and your spouse have finished putting all the presents out for the kids, it’s 11 o’clock and you’re worn out but swept up in the emotion of it all, cherishing that tonight’s all ours and tomorrow is theirs.”
LaVoie co-wrote the tracks with longtime collaborator Billy Aerts. “Christmas songs, to us, are wonderful in every possible way and we’re both just so proud of these songs,” he continues. “There’s so much true emotion in these songs that I think a lot of people will be able to relate to. And they were incredibly fun to make, too!”
The Christmas songs are the latest in a series of releases from Lobo via new partnership with Time Life. Last month, four digital albums were released, including “If I Could Do It Over: The Acoustic Hits,” a new collection that reimagines Lobo’s biggest songs and personal favorites as if they were recorded today for the very first time.
