John Legend's Ready For 'A Legendary Christmas' With Holiday Album & Tour

Is it just us or are the holidays starting earlier and earlier every year. For example, it's only October 1st, but we've already got word that newly minted EGOT winner John Legend is joining the ranks of Jessie J by putting out his first-ever holiday album, A Legendary Christmas, this month.

A Legendary Christmas will feature John taking on some Christmas classics like "Christmas Time Is Here," "Silver Bells" and "The Christmas Song." But that's not all we can expect. He's also enlisted the harmonica skills of Stevie Wonder himself for a new version of "What Christmas Means To Me." Elsewhere, Esperanza Spalding will join John for a duet of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." He'll also offer a cover of Marvin Gaye's "Purple Snowflakes" on the Raphael Saadiq-produced project, so there'll be a little something for everyone this holiday it seems.

On top of the album, you'll also be able to get in the holiday spirit with John in person, as the singer is embarking on a 35-date tour in support of the album kicking off November 15th. The jaunt will see him hit major cities like Atlanta, New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles before year's end. But don't worry, as he'll also be hitting smaller burgs like Oxon Hill, Maryland; Verona, New York; and Clearwater, Florida before all is said and done.
