Well, there's one I can cross off my list! This one is nothing short of spectacular and well worth the wait folks! I hope you got to hear "Quality Street" when it streamed. You will certainly be hearing cuts on Kringle Radio!

One of my all time favorite artists, Nick Lowe, is releasing “Quality Street”. Hurry on over and listen to a stream of the album today (July 25, 2013) only. While you’re at it, reserve your LP and/or CD copy today! Release date is October 29, 2013.

From the webpage:

Available on 10/29! Pre-order now and receive the new album on the release date!

Nick Lowe - Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family

A sublime new Nick Lowe album. . . holiday-themed for your convenience. Quality Street features three new Nick Lowe originals including one co-written with Ry Cooder. Also featured are a new song by Ron Sexsmith written expressly for Nick, plus other holiday favorites by Roger Miller, Roy Wood, and even a few traditional chestnuts-- all performed in in Nick's singular style. Nick describes this album as, “a sleigh bell-free zone.”
