On November 5, Billy Idol is releasing a remixed and remastered version of his Christmas album, Happy Holidays, for the first time on vinyl and streaming platforms via Dark Horse Records. Originally released in 2006, the album features Idol performing a wide variety of Christmas classics as well as the new original bonus track, “On Christmas Day,” which features Steve Stevens on guitar.
Produced by Idol and Brian Tichy, the new release of Happy Holidays has been remixed and remastered by Paul Hicks, known for his work remixing classic records from The Beatles, George Harrison, John Lennon, and The Rolling Stones. Happy Holidays has also been packaged with new artwork and is available for purchase on black vinyl, CD, digital, and on limited edition white vinyl.
“Before our 2006 European tour, I recorded a number of seasonal songs,” recalls Idol. “A tree-trimming, fireside, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day intimate album was the result. Most probably essential at Christmas, is that the music is in the spirit. Knowing that family, friends, and children might be listening, I wanted a selection that would please all, while still exploring the awe and mystery that is Christmas.”
Happy Holidays is available for pre-order now on CD or vinyl LP in the official store!

In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Miley recounted how Billy Idol’s works had inspired her album and attitude. “His music… the way that he married rebellion but also his music where he had incredible hooks. And he showed me that I could have balance, that I could make music that I and other people love,” she said. “And sometimes I’ve lost that and I’ve found that again where it’s like, ‘I want to make music for me.’”See More›
