Michael Buble talks to Eddie Rowley about family, lockdown and why he loves the Irish

Michael Bublé is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the phenomenal success of his mega festive album, Christmas, with the release of a new Super Deluxe Limited Edition Box Set.

To mark the occasion, the Canadian superstar linked up with Eddie Rowley from sundayworld.com for an exclusive Zoom chat.

The singer talks about the joy of being able to spend time with his family in the pandemic. “I more than survived, I got to be a dad,” Michael says. “For a year and a half I have not left the house, I’ve got to be poppy to a beautiful little daughter who loves me so much.”

Bublé also talks about his love affair with the Irish and says that Ireland is a country where he feels totally at home and can be himself. “We just love each other and I don’t have to pretend that I’m something that I’m not,” he says.

“It’s really one of the joys of my life showing up and getting to feel like I actually understand the culture and that I know the people. I feel like I get to be a part of it and I get to be an honorary citizen.”

And Bublé says he feels privileged that his Christmas album is the soundtrack to people’s festive celebrations around the globe every year.

“I’m the son of a fisherman, I’m no one…come from a family of middle-class, hard-working fishermen. And to think that I could be invited into people’s homes in such an intimate time where, honestly, people are better and kinde,r have more empathy…what a beautiful legacy to be able to have.”
