New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Following the runaway success of their first album together, The Bocelli Family announce the deluxe edition of A Family Christmas - with the release today of brand new single "Let it Snow". Set for release on November 10th via Decca / Capitol Records / Universal Music, A Family Christmas (Deluxe Edition) features four brand-new recordings, plus five additional bonus tracks.

On the album, the internationally renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli teams up with his 25-year-old son Matteo Bocelli and his 10-year-old daughter Virginia Bocelli. Officially opening the Holiday season with the release of "Let it Snow", the new single is also coming with a filmed performance of Andrea and Virginia, available now.

A Family Christmas (Deluxe Edition) is produced by composer and multi-Grammy® and Academy Award® nominee Stephan Moccio (Celine Dion, The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, Barbra Streisand), who has also contributed new arrangements and co-written 'The Greatest Gift' alongside Andrea Bocelli himself, Amy Wadge and Jonas Myrin. It will be available in CD and black standard vinyl. A Family Christmas was the biggest new Christmas album of the year in the US in 2022.

The album captures the Bocelli festive spirit in full flow, with new renditions of traditional carols arranged for all three voices. The trio of complementary voices intertwine and echo on the song 'Do You Hear What I Hear?', which provides a stirring opening to the album. Each of the three Bocelli performers gets a chance to shine on the album with solo tracks, duets and trios.

For Andrea Bocelli, the most celebrated classical singer in modern history, the chance to work with Matteo and Virginia on this album has been a source of great joy. He explains, "In this album, I rediscover the values that give meaning and strength to my life. Being able to celebrate Holy Christmas singing with my children is a great blessing. And sharing its fruit, enriched in its content, is our way of renewing our wishes to you and symbolically embracing that larger family, of which we are all a part."

Additionally to "Let it Snow", A Family Christmas (Deluxe Edition) features exclusive new tracks "Silver Bells", "E' Natale!" and "Winter Wonderland", which were not available on the original version. Six bonus tracks are also available, including "Do you Hear What I Hear" recorded with one of the most innovative, inventive, and inimitable vocal groups of all time, Pentatonix, an exclusive new version of the enchanting "The Greatest Gift," but also the iconic "Feliz Navidad (with The Simpsons)", an unforgettable performance from the Bocelli taken from the Disney+ short "The Simpsons meet the Bocellis in "Feliz Navidad". Full tracklist below.

It is the first appearance of 10-year-old Virginia Bocelli on an album. Meanwhile, 24-year-old Matteo Bocelli is enjoying the beginning of his own successful solo recording career with the release of his debut album Matteo out via Capital Records and paired with his first worldwide headline tour. He entered the limelight in 2018 after duetting with his father on the hit song "Fall On Me" from Andrea's best-selling album, Sì, which debuted at No. 1 in the US and UK charts. The emotive video, which features images of father and son through the years, has now surpassed 100 million views (watch here).

Andrea's emotive and instantly recognisable voice has earned him millions of fans around the world. In April 2020, he broke records with his emotionally charged Music for Hope performance from the historic Duomo cathedral in Milan. His unforgettable Easter performance ranks amongst the biggest musical live streams of all-time and the largest simultaneous audience for a classical live stream in YouTube history. A combination of these three incredible talents, A Family Christmas (Deluxe Edition) is an early gift from the Bocelli Family.
