Chart saviour John Legend has teamed up with actual saviour Jesus Christ for his 6th studio album, 'A Legendary Christmas'.

It's set to be released on 26th October and as far as I can tell will contain a mix of original songs and Christmas classics including a guest harmonica spot by Stevie Wonder.

1. "What Christmas Means to Me" (feat. Stevie Wonder on harmonica)
2. "Silver Bells"
3. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" (feat. Esperanza Spalding)
4. "No Place Like Home"
5. "Bring Me Love"
6. "Merry Christmas Baby / Give Love on Christmas Day"
7. "Christmas Time Is Here"
8. "Waiting for Christmas"
9. "Purple Snowflakes"
10. "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)"
11. "Please Come Home for Christmas"
12. "Wrap Me Up in Your Love"
13. "By Christmas Eve"
14. "Merry Merry Christmas"

He's also announced dates for a US tour to promote the album so expect him to pop up on The X Factor live shows at some point flogging this.

John Legend is not insufferable! ohmy.gif He's so super talented! Granted "All Of Me" was horrifically overplayed but songs like "Green Light" and "Love Me Now" are awesome and "Ordinary People" is also incredible wub.gif

So which are the original songs? Looks like:

"No Place Like Home"
"Bring Me Love"
"Waiting For Christmas"
"Wrap Me Up In Your Love"
"By Christmas Eve"
"Merry Merry Christmas"

All have John Legend writing credits - a decent amount of new tracks then - will check them out when I'm feeling festive.

Same here - can imagine an Xmas album by him being excellent with his voice. Hope he comes and does some promo in the lead up to Xmas!

Whatever you think of All of Me it's already a classic at weddings etc! Had 52 weeks in the top 40!!

All Of You is the most dull 4 and a half minutes I've ever had to suffer through... multiple times a day for all of 2013/2014 kink.gif Love Me Now is even worse

Ordinary People and Glory aren't bad though

I've seen there wasn't any songs playlisted at uk radio as far as I seen. Maybe it's done better in the US?
