Tyler Hilton has released a new original holiday single “Don’t Feel Like Christmas”!
The song is now available on all streaming platforms and available for purchase here.
Hilton performs the song in his upcoming Lifetime movie The Christmas Contract-airing November 22- alongside his One Tree Hill cast mates. The movie will be followed a One Tree Hill reunion show ‘Tis the Season: A One Tree Hill Cast Reunion.
I always loved the bluesy, longing Christmas songs best. Something about the holidays magnify the loneliness or something. I was visiting family in Canada last Christmas and was sitting at this beautiful old piano looking outside at all the snow and this music started spilling out. It kept playing in my head after I got home to sunny L.A . and I found myself singing, “Don’t feel like Christmas…”. The bluesy vibe ended up fitting perfect for a holiday movie called The Christmas Contract that a bunch of my One Tree Hill friends were starring in, and I ended up getting to perform the song in the film.
In addition to his new single, Hilton also has a new album coming out January 18, 2019.
This is not Hilton’s first album- he released a self-titled independent album in 2000. Hilton’s songs have been included in both the Walk the Line and One Tree Hill soundtracks-projects he also appeared on screen in.
Signed with Maverick Records, Hilton released The Tracks of Tyler Hilton in September 2004.
I wrote all those songs when I was still in high school, and I was very impressed that the songs I wrote while I was doing homework ended up being released on a major record label. That was really exciting to me. I could have written those kinds of songs again, but I wanted to do better. And I think my new album is better.
