Frankie Valli's first holiday album on the way

Frankie Valli will celebrate the holidays this year with 'TIS THE SEASONS, the first solo Christmas album of his career. 

The new album was produced by Bob Gaudio, who formed The Four Seasons with Valli in 1960, wrote many of the group's biggest hits, and created the worldwide phenomenon Jersey Boys. 

'TIS THE SEASONS also finds Valli teaming up with fellow Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Famer Jeff Beck, who adds his signature guitar sound to "Merry Christmas, Baby." It will be available on CD Oct. 14; the album will also be available digitally.

"The holidays are my favorite time of the year and, ever since the first Four Seasons Christmas album, I've wanted to do another one... and now I've finally got around to it," says Valli. "It's still great fun collaborating with Bob. The arrangements for this album are some of the most stunning he's ever assembled. I can't wait for the fans to hear it."

Gaudio says the album is full of surprises: "It is definitely eclectic by most standards, conventional in choice of material, but not treatment - sounds from our past and talented young people of the moment...So, if you guess this effort is a little of what you haven't heard from Frankie, your guess would be a lot right."
