Annie Lennox has signed with Universal Music Group for a long-term worldwide recording agreement. The Eurythmics singer will release her brand new album ‘A Christmas Cornucopia’ on November 22nd through Island Records UK and Decca Records in the US and the rest of the world.
The album features Annie’s unique and personal interpretations of some of her favorite Christmas carols as well as a new composition entitled ‘Universal Child’. “I’m absolutely delighted to be working with Island Records on my upcoming recording,” Lennox said in a press release announcing the deal. “This album is something I’ve wanted to do for many years. It’s a true labor of love, and I feel very fortunate to be in partnership with such a cutting edge team, especially when I’m at a stage in my creativity when I want to diversify, and pursue my passion in my own individual way. I’ve never been part of a ‘mold’, and Island are really supportive and appreciative of where I’m coming from. I want to make timeless music that people will love in many years to come…and I’d like to think that ‘A Christmas Cornucopia’ is going to be of those recordings.”
