Just in time for the festive season, Big Deal artiste Christopher Martin, through his management team King Yard productions, has again partnered with KFC Jamaica to release the second edition of the feel-good collection of holiday tunes - the KFC Christmas Album. The nine-track album features songs by Martin and several other local music industry heavyweights, such as Kevin Downswell, Shenseea, Romain Virgo, Wayne Wonder, D Major, Tosh Alexander, Alaine, and Voicemail, each covering a popular Christmas classic.

"In Jamaica, we live big all year - the Christmas season is no exception," said Martin. "For this album, it was important to get the right mix of artistes together to deliver the Christmas vibe with a little Jamaican twist."

For his Christmas track, Martin remakes a classic holiday song, Every Year, Every Christmas. "It's always an honour to pay homage to these classic songs at this time of year," said Martin. "I hope that all the fans will enjoy our musical tribute to the holiday season."

The KFC Christmas Album will be available free with the purchase of a KFC Festive Feast 12-piece bucket meal at KFC locations islandwide while stocks last.

"Every year, during the festive season, our aim is do something special that allows us to give back to our customers. Last year was our first edition of the KFC Christmas Album, which we released with five tracks. This year, we stepped things up a notch by welcoming four new artistes to the team and adding four new tracks to really elevate the festive feel of the collection," said Andrei Roper, brand manager for KFC Jamaica.
