John Legend has revealed his he's made his first-ever festive album 'A Legendary Christmas'.

The 39-year-old singer has announced that he's finally fulfilling his dream of releasing a festive LP this year by dropping 'A Legendary Christmas' - featuring eight classics and six new tracks - this winter as well as a tour to accompany the release. 

Taking to his Twitter account, John uploaded the promotional video for his album, which featured his wife Chrissy Teigen and their two children Luna, two, and Miles, four months, and said: "What's up everybody it's John Legend here. It's sunny Los Angeles in September but I can't stop thinking about Christmas. I just made a new Christmas album, I've been wanting to do this for a long time. 

"We recorded eight classic Christmas songs plus six brand new Christmas songs just for you. The album is called 'A Legendary Christmas' and we're about to have 'A Legendary Christmas Tour' coming to a city near you soon! 

"November 15 through to the end of the year with our 'A Legendary Christmas Tour' and we want to see you there!" 

He accompanied the video with the caption: "This winter, get ready for A Legendary Christmas! I have a brand new Christmas album coming out accompanied by #ALegendaryChristmas Tour! 

"Sign up for pre-sale TODAY only and pre-sale begins tomorrow at 10AM local time. Full dates & sign up for pre-sale on http://smarturl.it/legendaryxmastour ..."

The 'All of Me' hitmaker revealed at the beginning of last month that he had been busy working over the summer on festive tracks but found it "surreal" because the temperatures were scorching at the time and he was singing about snow.

He said at the time: "Yes, I'm so excited. So we have five new Christmas songs on the album, and quite a few classics. I've been recording it all summer.

"Recording Christmas songs over the summer puts you in a good mood! It's kinda surreal combining 100 degree Los Angeles summer with Christmas songs."
