Facet Records / Warner Records proudly present the Happiest Season Soundtrack: Music from and inspired by the Hulu Original film, arriving on November 6, 2020. The album is executive produced by Grammy Award-nominated songwriter and Facet Records co-founder Justin Tranter (Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Bebe Rexha, The Chicks). In celebration of the queer community, each of the 11 tracks on the album feature LGBTQ+ songwriters or artists. The star-studded tracklist includes songs by Anne-Marie, Bebe Rexha, Brandy Clark, Carlie Hanson, Shea Diamond, Sia, Tegan and Sara and more.
“For all types of families, music matters more during the holidays than any other time of year,” says Tranter. “To be given the honor to help create a holiday soundtrack that everyone can enjoy but celebrates LGBTQ talent is an actual dream come true for me! There are LGBTQ artists and/or songwriters on every original song. The soundtrack’s focus is on LBTQ women to pay tribute to the brilliant queer woman who co-wrote and directed the movie, I hope we did you proud Clea!”
Added soundtrack producer Spring Aspers, “I am thrilled to present this joyful Christmas soundtrack. Clea’s vision perfectly captures the holiday spirit and will put everybody in the mood. Collaborating with Justin’s unparalleled talent to create songs from the LGBTQ community is truly a gift. We can’t wait to share this with the world!”
