Justin Bieber will donate proceeds from new album “Under the Mistletoe,” due out Nov. 1, to various charities including "Make-A-Wish Foundation" and "Pencils of Promise."
Bieber says he's the first on the Universal Music roster to have part of his sales go to charity.
"Universal never actually allowed money from the album to go to charity, so it's kind of a unique thing and I'm very happy and proud of what we've done," Bieber said in an interview from Lima, Peru, yesterday.
Bieber is still uncertain how the sales will be divided among the charities, but he is working to achieve this goal with his team.
"I tell them basically what I want and they kind of go and help me get it done," said the 17-year-old, who will also donate money to food banks.
Bieber's new album will feature special collaborations with Mariah Carey and Boyz to Men as well as many others.
"They were all great people and fun to be around," said Bieber.
He continued, "They've been really successful and great in the country world, so I wanted to get them on my Christmas album and cross some barriers and try to get some different audience members to listen to my music.”
The track listing for the album includes:
"Only Thing I Ever Get for Christmas"
"The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)" featuring Usher
"Santa Claus Is Coming to Town"
"Fa La La" featuring Boyz to Men
"All I Want for Christmas Is You" with Mariah Carey
