Idina Menzel poses for a photo with her new Christmas album Holiday Wishes at a signing held at Barnes Noble on Tuesday (October 14) in New York City.
The Tony-winning actress’ new album was released that same day and she shared her thoughts with Time on her album being released over two months before the holidays.
“I have very strong feelings. The album comes out October 14. I think that’s ridiculous! I don’t understand,” Idina said. “I’ve been asking the label to tell me why. Apparently that’s when people start buying stuff for Christmas. Okay, that’s cool, but I’m barely into Halloween with my son! I completely understand if people aren’t ready for it until Thanksgiving. That’s when Christmas comes alive for me. My record label will hate me for saying that, but it’s the truth!”
FYI: Idina is wearing a Rebecca Minkoff outfit.
