Pentatonix Announces 'Vol. 3' Release Date, Second Holiday Album
The viral a cappella quintet noted the fall dates of two albums with RCA Records.
Not one, but two Pentatonix releases are coming this fall: PTX Vol. 3 hits shelves on Sept. 23, followed by a second holiday album, That's Christmas to Me, on Oct. 21.
The upcoming EP from the viral a cappella quintet marks their first with RCA Records, and will again feature covers of hits and original tracks, it was announced Thursday. The album will also include a surprise featured guest, as well as a song performed entirely in French.
Group members Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstie Maldonado, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola — who won NBC's singing competition The Sing-Off in 2011 — will share the upcoming Vol. 3 tracklist on Aug. 12, when its iTunes and Amazon pre-order goes live with the first of two planned instant tracks.
That's Christmas to Me, named for an original holiday song penned by the group, will include a combination of classic holiday tracks, modern favorites and a one-of-a-kind holiday mash-up.
Earlier this week, the group released a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles track and will appear in Pitch Perfect 2 as a Canadian group that rivals the Barden Bellas.
