Mandy Moore releases a brand-new two-track holiday single entitled How Could This Be Christmas on Verve Forecast. Side A is the buoyant classic “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” and Side B is the title track, an original co-written by Moore. Reflecting the complex nature of the holiday season this year, Mandy Moore recorded two distinct holiday songs: the beloved classic “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” and a reflective original, “How Could This Be Christmas,” which Moore co-wrote with husband Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes) and music producer Mike Viola. The latter is a beautiful, wistful ballad about loss and the added struggle of dealing with it during the holidays. “The holidays are certainly going to feel verifiably different this year and in this vein, I challenged myself (and Mike and Taylor) to write a song that hinted at the acknowledgment of something missing without being too specific. Because if we’ve learned anything in this season of change, it’s the recognition that those we love and cherish are what’s most important and worth celebrating. And that felt like a message to get behind during this special time of year.” - Mandy Moore

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
