It’s not our policy to write about iTunes free releases, because they are generally available for a short time only, but we think this one is worth it. Plus – nobody will be downloading Holiday music in January anyway… It’s a full-blown 20-track sampler album with something for everyone. It includes some religious Christmas songs, some holiday-spirit classics and some funny tongue-in-cheek tracks by artists like Sarah McLachlan, Weezer, Stephen Colbert, Aretha Franklin and others.
If you’re looking for fantastic holiday music, iTunes has you covered with this collection of 20 holiday tracks, from bluegrass versions of traditional favorites to R&B takes on Yuletide hymns. Featuring artists like Weezer, David Archuleta, and Aretha Franklin, this collection is a great way to soundtrack your holiday. It’s also a great way to explore the glory of iTunes LP – you can browse photos, check out lyrics, and read more about the artists. All of this it’s absolutely free for just one week.
