Criss released his first-ever holiday album entitled "A Very Darren Crissmas" on Decca Records in 2021. In it, he brought his radiant imagination and encyclopedic musical knowledge to a wildly eclectic collection of songs: big-band standards and novelty tunes, mid-century musical numbers and modern-day folk-pop ballads.
Criss' original track "Drunk on Christmas" featuring country chart-topper Lainey Wilson, showcased his effortless ingenuity as a songwriter. The result is an essential new entry into the holiday-music canon, both thrillingly unpredictable and touched with a timeless sense of Christmas magic.
Made with Ron Fair, multi-Grammy nominee and producer of numerous GRAMMY-winning hits, "A Very Darren Crissmas" also featured special guest appearances by Adam Lambert
and Evan Rachel Wood. "A Very Darren Crissmas" was only the latest evidence of Criss' singular gifts as a song interpreter.
