The Monkees - Christmas Party (2017-2018)

So this is the 1st official Christmas Album The Monkees will release, which is coming out on October 12th, 2018.

Rivers Cuomo, Andy Partridge, Peter Buck (of REM), Adam Schlesinger (of Fountains of Wayne, and who produced 2016's Good Times! ) Michael Chabon (yes, the author) and Scott McCaughey of The Minus 5 (with Peter Buck) all are involved.

Some Davy Jones recordings are included like with Good Times!

I also wonder as far as The Monkees and the Rock Hall, hanging with Peter Buck of REM (who are in the Rock Hall), maybe there could be some push to get them finally on the ballot this year or next?

Anyway, the Preorder is here which is for the digital. The Vinyl  is coming out in 2019 I guess, but the digital and CD version will be for sale in a few weeks.

Also, "Unwrap You at Christmas" is the tune Andy Partridge wrote, so that immediately is the one I'm the most excited to hear.
