Bryan Adams surprised fans on Friday (November 15th) with the out-of-the blue release of his five-track EP, titled Christmas. Rolling Stone reported the new, original track “Joe And Mary,” “Reimagines the story of Mary and Joseph as a classic rock n’ roll love story, with Jesus’ parents fleeing their small town and finding a safe haven for themselves and their unborn child.”

In addition to the new track, the EP is rounded out by three previously-released Adams holiday favorites — “Christmas Time,” “Reggae Christmas,” and “Merry Christmas,” along with Adams’ cover of Mitch Miller‘s 1960 favorite “Must Be Santa,” which sprang back into the public’s consciousness in 2009 by Bob Dylan on his Christmas In The Heart collection.
