It is his best-selling album so far, but Michael Bublé would not
want to make
a follow-up to
The Canadian singer tells NU.nl in conversation that he thinks one Christmas album is really enough.
Never say never
, but that Christmas album is really not going to happen," said Bublé, who sold 4.3 million copies of the 2011 album
in the US
Since that year, the album with covers of
Jingle Bells has
always been one of the best-selling albums around the holidays.
It also ranks 24th on the Billboard list of the best-selling albums of the past ten years.
"In 2009 I was asked to make a Christmas album", said 45-year-old Bublé, who opened Sky Radio The Christmas Station on Monday.
"I wanted to, but I said," I'm not making a Christmas album, but the Christmas album. I choose the best songs and give everything to make the most beautiful Christmas album ever. "
Of course I like to take a trip, like with Dolly Parton this year, but there will be no next Christmas album. "
'People call me Mr Christmas'
Because of its famous Christmas hits, many people associate Bublé with the holidays.
That doesn't bother the singer.
"People even call me Mr Christmas, I don't mind. If that's what people think of when they think of me, then that's great," he says.
"Every year at the most beautiful time of the year I am 'invited' into homes all over the world. That is a very great honor. It is now clear to me that I may have to make an Easter or Halloween album and that I am the artist. who will take care of all the holidays, "the singer jokes.
"But without messing around or showing off: in addition to my Christmas music, I still have sold-out tours and number 1 hits. If my Christmas music was all I had, it would do me something."

'Would like to record a Christmas duet with Ed Sheeran'
Bublé recently made the song
Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas
with Dolly Parton
, which they recorded from their own homes.
The Canadian calls the collaboration one of the highlights of his career.
“A friend of mine says: 'If you hang out with ducks a lot and talk to ducks, you will eventually become a duck yourself.'
So if I get to be in the company of Dolly, such an iconic superstar, it will affect your image. "
In the future, Bublé would like to record a Christmas duet with Ed Sheeran.
"He's a fantastic guy. I also once wrote a Christmas song myself:
The More You Give (The More You'll Have)
. I listened to that recently and thought, what would it be great if Ariana Grande or Demi Lovato did that? I think they do that much better than I. So maybe next year, who knows. "
