17 SEPTEMBER 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - Today Vitamin String Quartet (VSQ), one of the biggest contemporary string ensembles in the world, announce their latest holiday collection, IT FEELS LIKE CHRISTMAS. Set for an October 15 release on Decca Records, the brand-new Christmas album, from the group behind Netflix’s hit Bridgerton soundtrack, reimagines today’s most-beloved holiday hits with VSQ’s one-of-a-kind sound and arrangements.  The first single from the festive set is a reimagining of 80s Christmas classic “Last Christmas” (Wham!).  You can pre-order the album and listen to the song here.

 

The 13-track set is a uniquely singular take on modern-day holiday favorites.  Songs known and treasured worldwide such as “All I Want For Christmas” (Mariah Carey), “Santa Tell Me” (Ariana Grande), “Thank God It’s Christmas” (Queen), “Mistletoe” (Justin Bieber), and “Underneath The Tree” (Kelly Clarkson) are crafted into a wondrous brew—from ebullient, virtuosic twists to enchanting, wintertime reflections. As VSQ breathes new life into these holiday classics, they’ve created a collection of music that is set to become the go-to instrumental Christmas album for years to come.

Since the project’s start in 1999, Vitamin String Quartet (VSQ) has helped establish classical crossover as a genuine force in contemporary music and has surpassed over one billion streams to date. Across 300+ releases, VSQ have produced cutting-edge string renditions of a highly eclectic mix of artists (from BTS to Björk, and Studio Ghibli to My Chemical Romance) erasing boundaries between classical, dance, hip-hop, rock, and pop.  Based in Los Angeles, VSQ features a rotating cast of musicians and producers and frequently collaborates with animators, creators, and like-minded artists.

 

Fresh off high-profile placements in Netflix smash Bridgerton and Universal’s The King of Staten Island, VSQ has “reached a mainstream, global audience” (Variety) and “charmed the world with their classical covers” (Nylon).   As such, they have become one of the most popular contemporary string ensembles in the world.
