Settle around the fireplace this holiday season with Mad Men Christmas: Music from and Inspired by the Hit TV Series on AMC. Produced by Lionsgate Television, the multiple Emmy Award-winning drama Mad Men has captivated audiences worldwide since its 2007 debut with its vivid depiction of the world of Madison Avenue advertising in 1960s America. With fans eagerly awaiting the highly anticipated seventh season of the series, there is no better time to celebrate the wonderful holiday music of this era.
Concord Records, a division of Concord Music Group, has partnered with Lionsgate to release Mad Men Christmas: Music from and Inspired by the Hit TV Series on AMC. This 12-track release, available on CD exclusively at Target stores nationwide, will feature several iconic 1960s Christmas tracks and one previously unreleased remix of the celebrated “Zou Bisou Bisou” as performed by character Megan Draper (played by Jessica Paré) in the season five premiere.
Mad Men Christmas opens with the familiar Mad Men theme song “A Beautiful Mine” by RJD2, which has accompanied the opening credits since the show’s beginning, followed by the sultry and hypnotic voice of Paré in an exclusive remix of the French pop tune “Zou Bisou Bisou (Scotch + Sofa remix)” by IAMX. The album continues with many of the era’s best-loved Christmas songs, including Dean Martin’s “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” Rosemary Clooney’s “White Christmas,” Tony Bennett’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” Otis Redding’s “Merry Christmas Baby” and Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time Is Here,” to name a few.
