With more than 10 million albums sold, multi-platinum recording artist 98° (Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons) will release their first full-length Christmas album in 18 years, Let It Snow, on October 20, 2017 via UMe.  Their new original song “Season of Love,” is available now to stream or as a digital download when you pre-order the digital album. Recorded this summer in Los Angeles, the album features the group’s signature R&B-tinged, four-part harmonies. To celebrate their new album, the band embarks on a 31-city tour kicking off November 9 and concludes December 23.

Concert goers can expect a high-energy 98° show featuring holiday songs from their new album, as well as their beloved hits. Along with classics like the title track, “Let It Snow,” the 12-song collection includes a newly penned and recorded song, “Season of Love,” their take on “What Christmas Means To Me,” the standard that was popularized by Stevie Wonder and an interpretation of Joni Mitchell’s “River.” The guys also put their own spin on the classic carols, “The First Noel.” The band recruited Grammy-nominated music, TV and film producer Adam Anders to oversee the project who is best known for his work as executive music producer for Glee who has written and recorded with some of the biggest names in contemporary pop music including Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Backstreet Boys and the Jonas Brothers.

Let It Snow is their second Christmas title, their critically-acclaimed This Christmas was a million-selling, platinum album in 1999. “As a group, our favorite record,hands down, is [This Christmas],” says Drew. “We’re proud of the music, the harmonies, the production. It’s a Christmas record that every year people can put on and enjoy.” “We have primarily a female audience, but we’ll have guys come up to us and say, ‘You know what? I love the Christmas album; my mom bought it for me.’ It’s bro code that the Christmas album’s allowed,” Timmons jokingly added. Plus, “it’s a special year for us – it’s the 20th anniversary of our first release on Motown Records,” says Nick. “So, it just seemed like the perfect moment to revisit that and do a Volume Two.”
