Jimmy Fallon will showcase his “singer side” with a holiday album.
The holiday season is still a few months away, but Fallon recently surprised everyone with an announcement about his upcoming music project.
In an interview with E! News, “The Tonight Show” host revealed that he plans to release it during the holiday season this year.
“I’ve been working on one for a couple of years. It’s silly, there’s comedy songs, there’s traditional songs on there, there’s a couple of duets. It should be a good mix.”
Fallon is such a well-known comedian and TV host that his career as a singer has been overshadowed.
Before releasing his holiday-themed album, he collaborated with Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion on the holiday song “It Was A… (Masked Christmas).”
He told Billboard’s Pop Shop Podcast that he had already decided not to do anything that sounded like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” while working on the show.
Instead, Fallon reportedly devised a new idea and wrote the pre-pandemic Christmas song.
Fallon demonstrated his singing abilities once more in 2022 when he collaborated with Dolly Parton on “Almost Too Early for Christmas.”
Aside from his Christmas songs and albums, he also worked on other types of music, having discovered his passion for music when he was 13. He has previously worked with Neil Young, Justin Timberlake, and Mariah Carey.
In addition, Fallon released his debut album, “The Bathroom Wall,” in 2002. After a decade, he released “Blow Your Pants Off,” which won a Grammy for Best Comedy Album.
In addition to the good news, Fallon is suffering from a headache after becoming a co-defendant in a lawsuit filed against Yuga Labs. The filing claimed that the Bored Apes – a forgery of the Bored Ape Yacht Club non-fungible tokens – were “misleadingly promoted” and caused financial harm to the defendants.
Yuga Labs then filed a lawsuit against the company for trademark infringement, false advertising, and unfair competition.
The host and Jeremy Cahen collaborated on it, but they repeatedly stated that their collection was satirical art. According to Yahoo! Finance, it is thus protected from the trademark-infringement case. He brought it up in two episodes of his show.
Dana Seshens, his lawyer, argued that the motion should be denied because it burdens Fallon.
