Straight No Chaser's fourth full-length release, last year's "UNDER THE INFLUENCE" saw the vocal group reimagining a selection of their all time favorite songs alongside many of the superstar artists and undisputed music icons that made them famous. Produced by Mark Kibble (a founding member of the legendary a cappella group Take 6 and one of Straight No Chaser's primary influences), the album included unprecedented collaborations with some of popular music's best and brightest -- including Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Dolly Parton, Rob Thomas, Seal, Sara Bareilles, and Jason Mraz -- as Straight No Chaser put their distinctive and inimitable spin on songs known and loved the world over.

Among the EP's highlights were renditions of "White Christmas (Feat. Cee Lo Green)" and "Merry Christmas Baby (Feat. Otis Redding)," alongside new versions of standards like "Amazing Grace."
