Michael Bublé releases memoir and Christmas album
I guess I didn't understand why people would want pictures of me," Bublé tells the Toronto Sun. "The way [my manager] talked me into it was he said, 'Listen, kid, you always complain that people don't who you really are ... Why don't you go do this thing, do the photos, and you can tell you fans a little bit about what you're thinking. Who Michael Bublé is. The good, the bad.'"
Bubléalso tells the Sun a little about his new album, which features a duet with Shania Twain.
"It was a happy day; I love recording with [Shania]. This entire record was the most important of probably of my life. Because I was hugely affected by Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas' record. It introduced me to jazz music," says Bublé.
The track list is full of Christmas classics:
|1. It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas|
|2. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town|
|3. Jingle Bells [featuring the Puppini Sisters]|
|4. White Christmas [duet with Shania Twain]|
|5. All I Want For Christmas Is You|
|6. Holly Jolly Christmas|
|7. Santa Baby|
|8. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas|
|9. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)|
|10. Silent Night|
|11. Blue Christmas|
|12. Cold December Night|
|13. I?ll Be Home For Christmas|
|14. Ave Maria|
|15. Mis Deseos/Feliz Navidad" [duet with Thalia]|
The album is out Monday (Oct. 24) and the book hits shelves Tuesday (Oct. 25). You can also see Bublé starring in a holiday special, set to air on NBC in early December and he will appear on "Saturday Night Live" on Dec. 17.
