6-song EP is his second in Christmas series; will appear on K-LOVE Christmas Tour, kicking off Nov. 25
Known for his Freddie Mercury-esque vocals, for fronting his previous band, Downhere, and now as a member of the official Queen tribute, The Queen Extravaganza, Marc Martel will release "The First Noel" EP (Marc Martel Music). "The First Noel" EP, the second in his special solo series of Christmas music, officially releases Nov. 24 and will be available at MarcMartelMusic.com, Amazon, iTunes and at all of his shows during the holiday season. 
"The First Noel" was co-produced by Ben Shive (Dave Barnes, Ellie Holcomb, Colony House, MercyMe) and features six classics such as "The Christmas Song," "Mary Did You Know" (feat. Buddy Greene), as well as the title song. Martel also offers renditions of "Ave Maria" and "The Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's "Messiah."
"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" (feat. Plumb) is also featured on the EP. A music video will debut tomorrow on Sirius/XM's "The Message" Facebook page. 
"The First Noel" is the follow-up to his debut of holiday music selections, 2016's "The Silent Night" EP, which was quickly touted as "an instant classic for the holidays." A fan of Martel also shared, "in the littered halls of Christmas music, Marc offers a 'simple' and intensely beautiful collection of classic Christmas spirit." 
Martel will share songs from both "The First Noel" and "The Silent Night" live when he joins the K-LOVE Christmas Tour this season. Now in its sixth year, the 19-city tour will kick off the weekend of Thanksgiving on Saturday, Nov. 25, in Little Rock, Arkansas, and will wrap at New York City's historic Beacon Theatre on Sunday, Dec. 17. Martel will join fellow artists Steven Curtis Chapman, Plumb and We Are Messengers on the tour. Tickets are on sale now.
