This is the first single from an upcoming holiday album project that AJ is working on for release in December 2017.
“I never planned to release or even finish it,” AJ said about the holiday tune. “But everyday my mom would call me and ask, ‘Have you recorded that Christmas song yet?’…’Come on Mijo, people are waiting…’ and I would tell her, ‘What people?’ No one has ever heard this or knows I’ve recorded Christmas Music.’ So after a few weeks of telling her I’m working on it, I finally recorded it and we finished it up on the bus ride home from Pheonix Sunday night.”
The song was recorded at Castillo’s studio in Austin, Texas, and was mixed and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Anthony Perez, with instrumentation from Mario Ortiz, producer of The Jay Perez Band.
