This is a collection of tracks interpreted in Leona's own unique way, imbued with a playful Motown mood throughout.
In addition to the 7 holiday classics and brand new single “One More Sleep” the album features two other original songs: the hauntingly pretty “Your Hallelujah” (Leona Lewis, Jon Levine, Autumn Rowe, Lauren Christy, and the fun and flirty “Mr. Right” (Richard 'Biff’ Stannard, Camille Purcell, Jez Ashurst, Ash Howes, Leona Lewis).
Leona said, ‘This has been such a busy year for me having been on tour, shooting my first movie and being in the studio. But I cannot wait to get out there this Christmas and perform these songs. I had such fun recording this record and that really comes through in the songs. I am looking forward to spreading a little Christmas cheer!’
