MARK TREMONTI shares video for new song Christmas Morning, releases Christmas album today27th October 2023
With under 100 days until Christmas Day and festive items in stores already, MARK TREMONTI – the Grammy award-winning musician, producer, author as well as founding member of renowned rock bands Alter Bridge, Creed, and Tremonti – is releasing his original holiday composition “Christmas Morning.”
The song was penned by Tremonti and tells the story of the excitement of waking up on Christmas morning. The song draws from personal experience and how special that moment is to him and his family. “Christmas Morning” is the third track released from Christmas Classics New & Old – now available everywhere music is available for streaming and purchase. The music video is a claymation work of art created by Ollie Jones and follows a father who finds Santa’s naughty/nice list and ventures to bring it back to him. The visual masterpiece is the perfect backdrop for song produced and arranged by Carey Deadman.Christmas Classics New & Old is Mark’s interpretation of nine holiday classics and one original penned song from the acclaimed songwriter himself. After the success of his interpretation of songs Frank Sinatra made famous on his album Tremonti Sings Sinatra, Mark decided to partner up with the orchestra from that album to work on the holiday album, again being released through his Take A Chance For Charity organization.
From the opening horns of “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” to the slow fade of the Donny Hathaway classic “This Christmas,” Mark Tremonti showcases the music that was the bedrock of his childhood holidays. Mark’s interpretations of songs like “Jingle Bells,” “The First Noel” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” find their place among the many great versions that preceded them. “O Holy Night” is one of Mark’s personal favorites and finds new life in the inspired arrangement by producer Carey Deadman. Christmas Classics New & Old will sit alongside the most cherished holiday albums and continues to showcase the musical diversity inside Mark Tremonti.

As a GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum musician, MARK TREMONTI’s dynamic musical career spans influential bands from Alter Bridge and Creed to his own Tremonti, leaving an indelible imprint on hard rock with over 40 million albums sold, chart-topping debuts, countless television appearances and magazine covers, sold out arenas everywhere, and dozens of other accolades. To say he broadened his horizons with 2022’s Mark Tremonti Sings Sinatra might just be the understatement of the century though. He paid homage to 14 Sinatra classics backed by surviving members of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ band, in addition to a cadre of A-list session players. Right out of the gate, it incited widespread audience and tastemaker applause. Beyond features from Billboard, CBS New York, Washington Post, and many more, Carson Daly spotlighted the project on TODAY and raved, “Bar-none the best Frank Sinatra cover I’ve ever heard.”
Donating 100% of the album’s proceeds to the National Down Syndrome Society [NDSS] as part of his Take A Chance For Charity organisation, NDSS notably honoured Mark and his family at its Annual Gala & Auction in 2023. Moreover, the album hit #1 on the Billboard Top Jazz Albums Chart, and he would go on to play a handful of sold-out shows in support of the album, including one in London. However, he has yet to musically contribute to the happiest season of all – until now. Just in time for the holidays, he delivers Christmas Classics New & Old with nine renditions of holiday anthems and one original tailor-made to “put a smile on your face, make you feel good, and get you into the Christmas spirit,” according to Mark
