Eric Clapton's first ever full-length studio holiday album, Happy Xmas, is on Clapton's Bushbranch Records/Surfdog Records. Happy Xmas is Clapton's 24th studio album and his first since 2016's I Still Do. It mixes instantly recognizable holiday classics with lesser-known unique titles along with an original new song "For Love On Christmas Day." The album also features cover art illustration by Clapton himself.

"I had in my head that these holiday songs could be done with a slight blues tinge, and I started to figure out how to play the blues lines in between the vocals," says Clapton. "I got it down and one of the most identifiable songs on the album, the one that became the foundational style, is ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas'."

The album also carries a dedication — "Jingle Bells (In Memory of Avicii)" in memory of the late DJ, one of the most talented in the EDM era, who struggled with alcohol before he was found dead April 20, 2018 of an apparent suicide.
