From Planet Rock.
Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford is releasing a new heavy metal Christmas album called ‘Celestial’ on Friday 18th October.
The solo album is being released under the moniker of Rob Halford With Family & Friends, and it contains eight hard rocking interpretations of festive favourites alongside four original tracks.
Traditional Yuletide classics Rob covers on the album are ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’, ‘Away In A Manger’, ‘Joy To The World’, ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’, ‘The First Noel’, ‘Deck The Halls’, ‘Good King Wenceslas’ and ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’.
The four original songs are called ‘Celestial’, ‘Morning Star’, ‘Protected By The Light’ and a riff-heavy ‘Donner and Blitzen’.
‘Celestial’ is available to pre-order in a variety of packages from Rob Halford’s official website right now, and it comes with an instant grat download of ‘Donner and Blitzen’.
Alongside the standard edition ‘Celestial’ CD and LP, bundles include a Rob Halford prayer candle, a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle, a Christmas sweater and a Celestial Mega Bundle including a limited edition autographed gold vinyl LP.
Behold the beauty of the sweater!
