Curb | Word Entertainment’s Stars Go Dim unveils The First Noël, available today (11/5). Listen to the new six-song Christmas EP HERE.
Heralding the arrival of the highly-anticipated holiday offering, Stars Go Dim previously released the worshipful title-cut and the nostalgic original, “Home (feat. Hannah Ellis),” in the weeks leading up to today’s official street date for the full EP.
“I’ve been in anticipation for new Christmas music now for a couple of years, and I’m so excited to be able to bring you this EP this year,” shares Chris Cleveland, who records under the Stars Go Dim moniker. “My hope is that when you hear this group of songs it can ground you in the tradition of Christmases past, as well as bring new joy, new hope, and new memories to you and your family. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas! Enjoy the new music!”
Produced by Jeff Pardo (Francesca Battistelli, Crowder), The First Noël includes four originals—all co-written by the Stars Go Dim front man—and two traditional holiday favorites, made fresh by Cleveland’s pristine vocal.
The First Noël comes on the heels of Stars Go Dim’s brand new single, “Yes He Does,” which recently garnered “most added” honors at Christian radio and serves as the artist’s first taste of new music since 2019’s Better. Listen to the powerful new song HERE, and watch the accompanying music video HERE.
Stars Go Dim will continue to debut new music out on the road through the end of the year, sharing the stage with fellow label mate Dan Bremnes and Cleveland’s “10000 MINUTES: THE EXPERIMENT” podcast co-host Tim Timmons on select dates.
