In a new music video, David Archuleta covers “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays,” by the iconic boy band ‘NSYNC. The song is a cut from the deluxe edition of his Christmas album, Winter in the Air, which is out today (Nov 14).
The clip features baking, ugly sweaters, karaoke and a fun cameo from ‘NSYNC members Lance Bass and Chris Kirkpatrick.
“I was so stoked that Lance and Chris were willing to make an appearance in my video of their song that’s becoming a classic Christmas song,” the American Idol season 7 alum told Entertainment Tonight of the new music video. “I wasn’t sure if they’d say yes, but I’m so glad that they were up for it and having some fun. It’s meant to be cheesy and light, and I hope people will get a kick watching it.”
“It’s an honor to have David’s incredible voice cover this iconic song,” Lance told ET. “Shooting this was so fun, but now I will have this earworm of a song in my head for the next six months. Thanks, David.”
“Everyone was so much fun to work with,” said Chris. “It was great to relive this song and do it with one of my best friends on the planet, Lance.”
David will embark on a Christmas tour beginning November 25 in Grand Junction, Colorado. Click HERE for tickets and information.
