Dee Snider, who is the frontman of Twisted Sister, spoke in a recent interview with a podcast called ‘Behind The Viny,’ and announced that he’ll record a new Christmas song with Tarja Turunen.
While talking about the Christmas songs, Dee recalled the time he collaborated with Celine Dion for ‘God Bless Us Everyone’ which is a Christmas song too. But on the other hand, Dee revealed that this song wasn’t originally a Christmas song but a song he wrote for his wife.
On his collaboration with Celine Dion, Dee said:
“I wrote this song for my wife many years ago,” he said (hear audio below). “You guys may or may not know that Celine Dion recorded a Christmas song I wrote [called ‘God Bless Us Everyone’]. I wrote it as a gift for my wife; I never wrote it for commercial purposes. And I can’t — it’s just out of my range to sing it.”
He continued and revealed the details of how he decided to collaborate with Tarja to make a new version of that Christmas song. He said:
“I decided to do my own rendition of it, and I asked Tarja to sing it as a duet with me, ’cause it’s got some really high parts in it. So Jeff Pilson from Dokken and Foreigner, he’s producing it. And we’re just finishing the tracks right now, so we’re gonna start doing the vocals. That’ll come out later this year.”
