Rising soul singer October London is spreading joy this holiday season with his new album, The Greatest Gift, out now on Death Row Records/gamma.
The 10-track set, written and produced by London, is a sweet collection of cozy tunes that explore the romantic side of the holidays.
Sultry songs like “Naughty & Nice” and “Under the Mistletoe” were made for the bedroom, while songs like “A Kid’s Christmas Story” take a more family-friendly route.
The title track arrives with an official lyric video with imagery that is bound to help get viewers into the holiday spirit.
“‘Tis the season again / Now we’re here alone by the fire / In my arms you will soon retire / But first I’ll let you know / The greatest gift would be your love for Christmas,” London sings over a piano-laden production.
The Greatest Gift is October London’s second album of 2023. In February, he released The Rebirth of Marvin, a retro soul-inspired offering that included his hit single “Back to Your Place.”
The romantic ballad spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart. “Back to Your Place” is currently the most-streamed song on The Rebirth of Marvin, with 4.3 million streams on Spotify.
Fans could potentially hear songs from The Greatest Gift and The Rebirth of Marvin in concert. London recently hinted at his plans to announce tour dates. He wrote in an Instagram caption, “I Just Signed my very first Tour Deal. Show dates coming soon! Stay tuned!”
