Christmas Stays The Same

The long awaited follow-up to Linda's critically acclaimed "Christmas Stays the Same" will be released on Monday, October 14, 2013 and be sold exclusively on Linda's website as well as at CD signings following most of her U.S. based concerts from November 1st until the end of December.

Long-time collaborator and friend Kim Scharnberg contributed several arrangements to this album. The twelve track CD contains two new original songs: "Christmas Where You Are" (music and lyrics by Linda Eder) and "Silence of Snow" (music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Linda Eder). Also on the album are six fan-selected tracks, including a re-interpreted version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Eder fans from across the globe voted, through social media, on the Christmas songs they most wanted to hear Linda sing.

“I waited thirteen years to make my second Christmas CD. Some familiar faces came back to help me create this music as well as some wonderful musicians that I have come to know and work with over the last several years”, said Linda. “Christmas is meant to be a special time when we remember what is important in life and the people who are dearest to our hearts. Christmas music plays a big part in that. I hope this CD helps listeners to find the magic of Christmas this year and every year to come.”
