One of the most successful, iconic and revered artists in pop music history, Annie Lennox – with over 83 million albums sold – has announced she is releasing a digitally remastered version of her sixth solo album, A Christmas Cornucopia – a collection of inspired interpretations of traditional festive songs, rounded out by a Lennox composition, Universal Child. Fun fact: Annie Lennox was born on Christmas Day!
The 2020 re-issue of A Christmas Cornucopia will be released via Island Records on Friday, November 20 to mark its 10 year anniversary and it will feature a brand new, previously unreleased track, Dido’s Lament, a new tracklisting, and new artwork across all formats – vinyl, CD and digital.
Annie Lennox says: “I’m absolutely delighted to be releasing the 10th Anniversary of A Christmas Cornucopia. 2020 has been an unprecedented year around the world… The carols on this album represent continuum – harking back to a time before modern technology, climate emergency, global pandemics, pollution, forest destruction, species extinction and all the challenges our world must urgently deal with in terms of crisis in sustainability.
“I hope this recording will at least offer some comfort and nostalgia, but also an awareness that political leaders, religious leaders and everyone around the world must face up to the question of how many more Christmases we have left to spend on this blighted earth.”
All proceeds earned from Annie’s original composition on the album, Universal Child, will be paid to the Annie Lennox Foundation, which raises money for various charitable projects, primarily those supporting and educating women and children in Africa and people with HIV/Hepatitis C in Scotland.
