"What we’re going to see in five, six years are the shows that [Hamilton] has inspired," Odom tells THR.

The Tony winner's 'Simply Christmas' will hit shelves Nov. 11 on S-Curve Records.

The room where it happens will soon have a Christmas tree.

Leslie Odom Jr. is releasing a new holiday album, it was announced Thursday. Entitled Simply Christmas, it will be released Nov. 11 on S-Curve Records and feature soulful jazz versions of classics such as "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "The Christmas Song," "First Noel" and more.

"I get asked about recording a Christmas album a few times a week. I hope we've made a record you'll gladly add to your collection of holiday classics," said Odom Jr. in a statement. "Simply Christmas was a real pleasure to sing and create.It's filled with everything that is special to me about the holidays."

The move follows the success of the Tony winner's self-titled debut jazz album, released this past June, just before he completed his run as the original Aaron Burr in Broadway's Hamilton. His upcoming projects include Fox's Murder on the Orient Express. He is repped by CAA.
