October 5, 2011 (Toronto, ON)– Global phenomenon Justin Bieber begins his third year on the world stage with the November 1 release of his first Christmas album, UNDER THE MISTLETOE (Island Records/Universal Music Canada). The album is a seasonal mix of traditional Christmas standards and newly penned holiday music, largely co-written by Bieber.
UNDER THE MISTLETOE will be available both as a standard and deluxe CD + DVD edition. The deluxe CD edition includes 25-minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, plus the video for “Pray”, along with four additional holiday songs. UNDER THE MISTLETOE’S first single, “Mistletoe” will be launched on October 18 and the accompanying video was shot last week in Franklin, Tennessee by Roman White, who also directed Justin’s “One Less Lonely Girl” video.
“Mistletoe” was written and produced by the hit making Canadian duo known as The Messengers (Nasri and Adam Messinger). The Messengers first wrote and produced Justin’s chart-dominating hit of early 2011, “Never Say Never”, title track from his hit concert film of the same name. In addition to “Mistletoe”, the Messengers wrote and produced the songs “Christmas Love” and “Home For Christmas” (featuring The Band Perry). The album UNDER THE MISTLETOE was produced by Kuk Harrell.
In just two short years, Justin Bieber has accumulated over 13 million Twitter followers, 36 million facebook friends and 2.2 billion combined views on You Tube and VEVO. UNDER THE MISTLETOE is 17 year old Justin’s fifth release since he first arrived on Island Records/Universal Music Canada in November 2009 with My World. My World contained his worldwide debut hit, “One Time”, the follow-up “One Less Lonely Girl”, and two more chart hits, “Love Me” and “Favorite Girl”. To date, Justin has amassed more than 11 million in worldwide CD sales, including almost 600,000 albums and over 921,000 combined digital singles in Canada.
