Seth MacFarlane Recording Christmas Album
Family Guy and Ted creator teaming up with pop stars for unexpected project...
He's already got successful TV shows and a smash hit movie to his name, and now Seth MacFarlane appears to be targeting the pop charts.
MacFarlane, 40, is reported to have worked with stars such as Norah Jones and Sara Bareilles on the project, which was recorded at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London.
THR's Roy Trakin wrote: "Once again, MacFarlane teamed up with composer, arranger and producer Joel McNeely and a 52-piece orchestra recorded at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, featuring a bevy of London’s premier players.
"During these sessions, McNeely took over Studio 2, made famous by The Beatles. Among the musicians in the orchestra were jazz legend Peter Erskine on the drums and former Frank Sinatra bassist Chuck Berghoffer.
"MacFarlane and McNeely cherry-picked both timeless holiday songs and lesser-known gems.
"MacFarlane tackles such chestnuts as Let It Snow, and brings a new interpretation to the Lee Gordon rarity Christmas Dreaming.
"Norah Jones joins him for Seger Ellis and Al Stillman's Little Jack Frost Get Lost, while Sara Bareilles lends her pipes to Frank Loesser's Baby It’s Cold Outside."
