Esteemed producer and multi-hyphenate musical creative, Tommee Profitt, today announced the release of his new album, The Birth of a King, due out Friday, October 16 via Capitol CMG. Featuring an eclectic lineup of guests including internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Avril Lavigne, R&B artist Stanaj, and singer/songwriter Chris Tomlin, to name a few, the high-concept Christmas album brings Profitt's cinematic sensibilities and signature genre-bending sound into the realm of holiday music.
"This is something I've wanted to do for the last 15 years, and quarantine finally gave me the time to make it happen," said Profitt. "I wanted to make a Christmas album that sounds like an epic movie soundtrack, with 808s and a gospel choir and all these incredible singers, and it turned out to be the hardest and most exciting thing I've ever worked on."
"I'm beyond excited to be part of such a special project," said Stanaj. "When Tommee called me, I knew he had something really special. The goal was to make the best version of the song - 'Noel (He Is Born)' - as possible and I think he did just that. This cinematic take on a Christmas classic makes it even more beautiful than ever. I'm grateful for my friendship and this collaboration with Tommee. I can't wait for everyone to hear it."
