Mitchell Tenpenny will release his Christmas album ‘Naughty List’ on 29th October 2021.
The 11-song album will be available to stream and download, and it will be available physically too.
“I love all Christmas music,” says Tenpenny. “It always brings me back to my childhood and sharing the holidays with my family. ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ is probably my favourite of all time. Makes me think of sitting by the fire and watching Christmas movies. But I love that I was able to write a few new songs that are included too!”
Produced by Mitchell, Jordan M. Schmidt and Lindsay Rimes, ‘Naughty List’ contains all seven songs from Mitchell’s ‘Neon Christmas’ EP released in 2020, as well as four additional tracks including two originals co-written by Tenpenny, ‘Don’t Hang The Mistletoe’ and ‘I Hope It Snows’.
