Season of Love

Album: Let It Snow (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • 98 Degrees recorded this original song for their second Christmas album, Let it Snow. Band member Drew Lachey explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct:

    "Season of Love" is more about taking that connection, that feeling, we all get around Christmas time where you're spreading love and cheer and all that stuff, and continuing that year round and continuing that theme of love. It's one of those songs that just started flowing, once we had a concept, and the imagery in it, lyrically, is really great."
  • Asked about the difference between creating a holiday song and writing a more traditional single, Lachey replied:

    "I think a lot of it comes down more to production than it does to melody and lyrics. You want something that is going to be a little more timeless. Something that isn't so focused on what's hot in the top sounds for these six months, so you try and add more general, timeless sounds into the record. Then for us it was more about what message we wanted the song to have."
