Bublé is currently wrapping up a 40 date tour of the US in support of his sixth studio album To Be Loved, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard Magazine’s Top 200 Pop Charts in April. As a gift to fans, a specially-priced package coupling To Be Loved with Bublé’s perennial chart-topping collection, Christmas, will be released exclusively to Canadian retail on Monday, November 11.

An international superstar, Bublé sold out 10 nights at the 17,000 capacity 02 Arena in London and 5 nights at the 10,000 capacity 02 in Dublin this summer. His previous Crazy Love Tour sold out in 80 US cities and was seen by over two million fans worldwide. To Be Loved is Bublé’s 4th consecutive No. 1 album. In conjunction with the release, he co-hosted The Today Show and appeared on Kelly & Michael, The Ellen Show, Nightline, Dancing with the Stars, The Chelsea Lately show and a surprise appearance in a NY subway station which immediately went viral. The multi-Grammy winning artist has had global sales of over 45 million albums in the course of his extraordinary decade long career.
To Be Loved, produced by Bob Rock, was recorded in Vancouver and Los Angeles and includes a mix of standards as well as four original songs all co-written by Bublé. “After All” one of the four originals was co-written and performed with fellow Canadian Bryan Adams. The album also includes hits previously recorded by some of Bublé’s musical heroes including the Bee Gees hit “To Love Somebody,” Dean Martin’s “Nevertheless (I’m In Love With You”), the Jackson 5 early ‘70’s smash “Who’s Loving You,” Jackie Wilson’s “To Be Loved” and the Elvis Presley classic “Have I Told You Lately.” Bublé is joined by actress Reese Witherspoon on the classic Frank and Nancy Sinatra duet “Something Stupid.”
