“We are insanely charged up for our friends in radio and the media to be the first to hear ‘Black and Gold Christmas,’” said Chip Dominick. “We sincerely hope that these influential tastemakers love the song so much that
they can’t wait to spread the word about it to their loyal audiences through airplay and press coverage.”

in mid-November with a presale available now
