Calling all citizens of Block Nation: New Kids on the Block has added three more songs to your holiday playlist.
The Boston boy band has released an expanded version of its May EP, “Thankful,” called “Thankful: Unwrapped,” with three new holiday songs: “Unwrap You,” “One Night of Peace,” and “December Love.”
Upon first listen, “Unwrap You” sounds destined to join NSYNC’s “Under My Tree” in the boy-bands-awkwardly-sexualizing-Christmas canon, while “One Night of Peace” and “December Love” are more traditional odes to, well, peace and love.
Those who’ve been following the exploits of Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, and Danny Wood for decades will no doubt remember NKOTB’s “Merry, Merry Christmas.” Released in 1989 at the peak of the group’s popularity, that record went double-platinum and featured tracks like the top-10 hit “This One’s for the Children” and “Funky, Funky Christmas.”
According to a note sent out to fans, the band will be hosting a special screening of its tour documentary, “NKOTB Total Package Tour Unwrapped,” in Boston on Dec. 9. Further details have yet to be announced.
