Travolta, Newton-John reunite for Christmas album
Due out November 13, This Christmas includes 12 holiday standards plus the original song "I Think You Might Like It," a sequel to Grease hit "You're The One That I Want" that was written and produced by that song's writer/producer John Farrar.
In a press release, Travolta said he came up with the idea for the album after receiving a Christmas text from Newton-John noting that "You're The One That I Want" had become the best-selling pop duet in history. "From the moment we decided to do this, magic happened," Travolta explained. "Everyone we contacted agreed to do it."
He added: "My desire was to make This Christmas an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy. I wanted people to be able to play it around the house or in the car during the holidays, and make us part of your celebration. Gathering around house listening to Christmas music has always been an important part of that time of the year to my family."
Sales proceeds from the album willl go towards Travolta and Newton-John's respective charities. One aims to combat children’s disabilities, including autism and seizures, and the other funds cancer research.
