Alternative Christmas Music

November 19, 2015

The holiday classics as sung by Nat King Cole, Sinatra and various choirs are all well and good, but if you’re looking for contemporary updates of your holiday favorites, this selection of MP3 albums has something to suit every taste.

As an added bonus, many of the tracks are included in the Amazon Prime Music library, so Prime members can stream them or add them to their music libraries for free!
