This week, TobyMac released his first Christmas record. Christmas in DiverseCity (Forefront Records) is available wherever music is sold, including iTunes, Amazon MP3, Family Christian Stores, LifeWay, Parable, and Mardel. A limited amount of autographed copies are also available in a special deal with the striped hoodie from the official online store.
Christmas in DiverseCity showcases pop, rock, soul, hip-hop and urban flavors into irresistible songs with a distinctive Christmas spirit. Featuring memorable collaborations with Owl City, Leigh Nash and Jamie Grace, the album's track listing also spotlights performances and songs from TobyMac’s long-time touring band, DiverseCity.
TobyMac says: “I just tried to think outside the box. It’s difficult at first to imagine some of these songs with a modern beat, but I think Christmas is about celebration and come on, on the inside everyone wants to dance. It has a bit of everything- six songs are my artistry: an eclectic blend of Christmas classics and originals. The other seven tracks are my amazing band’s (DiverseCity) individual artistic efforts. I love it.”
Christmas in DiverseCity also features the No. 1 radio hit "Christmas This Year," which was released as a single track last year and features the talents of Leigh Nash.
