Carnie Wilson Records ‘Non-Christmas’ Christmas Album

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For singer Carnie Wilson, recording her new holiday album was the most “non-Christmas” experience she’s ever had.

Wilson – who was part of girl group Wilson Phillips in the 90s, best known for their hits “Hold On,” and “You’re In Love” – has just released her first-ever solo holiday album titled Christmas With Carnie, and says recording it was a true California Christmas experience.

Says Wilson: “I made the album in the middle of July, in my studio at home. The whole time I was thinking, ‘It’s July, I’m Jewish, and I’m eating bacon and eggs every morning before I record Christmas songs.’ It was the most non-Christmas, California Christmas ever!”

Still, Wilson was able to get in the Christmas spirit and got her family involved in the process.

She explains, “My husband wrote a beautiful original song for the album called ‘Warm Lovin’ Christmastime,’ and my mom and aunt sang background vocals on ‘Jingle Bells.’ I turned to my own favorite Christmas songs for inspiration, including my dad’s [Brian Wilson] Beach Boys song, ‘Little Saint Nick.’”

And Wilson’s two-and-a-half year old daughter, Lola, even got in on the Christmas crooning.

Wilson says, “Lola started singing ‘Merry Christmas Darling’ by The Carpenters in the most serious, cutest tone. She knows what’s up. She loves Christmas too!”
