You wouldn't expect Rob Halford to be one of those people who plays Christmas music in October, but the Judas Priest frontman is set to release a holiday album this month.
This week, Halford released a hard-rocking cover of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing", from his upcoming album Celestial.
So why a Christmas album? Halford says "Metal maniacs - as we call ourselves - are just as ready for the holidays as everybody else"
Celestial is also a family affair - Halford's brother, sister, and nephew all appear on the album, which will be out Oct. 18th.
