"Reuniting Wilson Phillips with the multi-talented pop producer and songwriter Glen Ballard on an album featuring Christmas favorites and newly written songs is certain to become a holiday classic," states Alex Miller, Sr. Vice President & General Manager of Sony MASTERWORKS.

At a different stage in all of their lives, the trio of Wilson Phillips is excited to finally be back together and musically share the joy, love and happiness of the holiday season not only with their families, but with their fans too. As one of the most popular 90's female pop group, the Wilson Phillips Christmas album is sure to be one of the most buzzed about albums of the 2010 holiday season featuring 15 classic Christmas songs including "White Christmas," "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," "Winter Wonderland," "The Christmas Song," and many more. There will also be a few new Holiday songs on the album that Wilson Phillips and Glen Ballard are writing together.
