Lindsey Stirling Is Recording A Christmas Album: BreatheHeavy Video Interview

Lindsey Stirling's most-recent album Brave Enough hasn't even celebrated its first birthday yet, but the violinist/performance artist is already in the creation process for a followup.

During a brief interview at the Billboard Music Awards outside of the T-Mobile Arena on the pink carpet on Sunday (May 21), Stirling, who won the award for Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Album of the year, opened up to BreatheHeavy about a holiday record she's got in the works.

But before we get to that, I asked what her mindset was in relation to last Billboard Music Awards. Prior to her performance with Celine Dion at the 2016 BBMAs, Stirling told us that she “lost someone recently as well” and was “hoping to show that no matter what happens to you in life, you can't control it, but it's important to move on.” Stirling didn't specify at the time who she was referring to, but fans believe she had her keyboardist Jason “Gavi” Gaviati in mind. He passed away November 2015 after a tough battle against lymphoma.

Stirling is in a much better place now. “So many things I feel like are water under the bridge and I’m on a good side,” she said.

Now for that Xmas music I mentioned. “I have been listening to Christmas music non-stop because I am going to start working on a Christmas album very soon,” she revealed to BreatheHeavy. Stirling hasn’t locked down a tracklist yet, but she does have plans to pursue her version of “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch.” Major kudos to her if she can perform that with long and skinny green fingers.
