The Luther Vandross Estate Releases Christmas EP, “Luther Vandross Classic Christmas”


Legendary National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Famer and eight-time Grammy award winner, Luther Vandross’ estate is set to release a posthumous Christmas EP, “Luther Vandross Classic Christmas”. This EP will be released by Primary Wave Music and The Luther Vandross Estate. The EP features never-before-released (three-track) soulful holiday tunes; “At Christmas Time,” “May Christmas Bring You Happiness,” and a special bonus a cappella mix of “At Christmas Time.”

Pre-saves are available today HERE, and the EP will be released on all DSPs on Friday, November 3.

“At Christmas Time” and “May Christmas Bring You Happiness” debuted on the 1976 compilation album “Funky Christmas,” released on Cotillion Records. Now, for the first time, music lovers around the globe can experience these heartfelt recordings as a stand-alone EP. A captivating a cappella rendition of “At Christmas Time” will debut in this musical release, which was inspired by the luxury brand Waterford and chosen as the musical backdrop for their holiday campaign. 

David Gottlieb, manager of the Luther Vandross Estate, shared his excitement, stating, “Luther’s distinctive voice has been a golden thread in the tapestry of holiday music for decades. This release serves not only as a testament to his remarkable talent but also as a gift that keeps on giving, allowing his enchanting melodies to continue being a cherished part of families’ holiday traditions.”

“This is more than just a Christmas album; it’s a convergence of history, emotion, and the ever-present spirit of the holidays that Luther Vandross encapsulated in his music,” said Sean Lewis, Marketing Manager of Digital Strategy at Primary Wave Music. “In this specially curated EP, we invite listeners to become a part of a cherished journey, where rhythms and lyrics foster a renewed sense of connection and joy in this festive season. It’s a token of remembrance and a tribute to Luther’s everlasting impact.”
