If you’ve been waiting for Britney Spears and ‘NSYNC to come along and pepper your holiday season with a shimmering, sparkling dose of pop, then you’re about to be a very happy reader. Those acts are teaming up with the Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, TLC, Toni Braxton, Santana, Monica, Joe, R. Kelly, Pink, Dave Matthews Band, Donell Jones, Dido, and Steps for a holiday collection titled “Platinum Christmas.” The collection arrives on November 14 through Jive Records, and it promises to find the aforementioned artists tackling holiday season classics as well as contemporary tracks. The collection marks Jive Records’ first foray into the holiday market and brings a Christmas twist to the pop-compilation trend that sent the “Now That’s What I Call Music 4” compilation to the top of the charts this summer. STEPS’ contribution on the album is Merry Christmas Everybody. (Source: MTV US)
Thanks to Global Music Distrubtion who have pointed out that STEPS are playing Belfast at the new Odyssey Arena on 17th December.
A few of you might be wondering why the new look site has surfaced. Its basically because I’ve been way too busy to get a major start on it. It will probably surface around the new year now.
