S-Curve Records will release the second album by Tony winner Leslie Odom Jr., the holiday-themed Simply Christmas. It will hit shelves November 11.

The new collection will feature Odom's jazz versions of holiday tunes including "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "The Christmas Song," "First Noel," and others. It comes after the label's release of Odom's self-titled debut album earlier this year.

Along with a Tony Award for originating the role of Aaron Burr in Hamilton, Odom won a 2015 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album as a principal soloist in that show's original cast recording. He previously appeared on Broadway in Rent and Leap of Faith. He also had a regular role on the NBC series Smash.
