Australian Christian Pop Duo, for King & Country has announced the release of their first ever full-length Christmas album, “A Drummer Boy Christmas,” due on October 30th.
The Nashville based singers took to Instagram to detail the inspiration behind the new project.
“The miracle of Christmas captivated us long ago and has been laced into the DNA of the band. We felt it was the imperfectly perfect time for us to do our small part in telling the story of the redemption that Christmas offers to all of us. So, bake those chocolate chip cookies, make a little hot chocolate, strike up that cozy fire, and let us take you on a 44 minute and 49 second musical Christmas journey to celebrate the greatest story the world has ever known!” the music duo penned.
“A Drummer Boy Christmas” consists of 13 tracks and features two original Christmas songs entitled “Heavenly Hosts” and a heart moving ballad from Joseph’s perspective “A Carol of Joseph.” The album was successfully produced by Tedd T, for KING & COUNTRY and co-produced by Benjamin Backus.
