Just noticed 6 songs released on Nov 20 on Spotify and the only release (so far) for 2020. All from 1991 remasters so nothing new, but just wondering why? Are they required to have some form of release each year?

Short playlists disguised as new releases are becoming a thing now. Who knows why. Check out the beatles and Paul McCartney on spotify, too.

Presumably its just so you show up on things like the new releases page. I assume a lot of the suggestion algorithms, search results etc also put a bit more weight on newer releases. So just a way to generate some more listens on the cheap

It's something UME is doing with a number of their artists for the holidays:

"...a variety of 'Christmas With…' collections for artists including The Beach Boys, Bing Crosby, Brenda Lee, Burl Ives, Chuck Berry, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, The Jackson 5 and Nat King Cole are available to stream on your favorite DSP and there's of course the annual Christmas Music playlist which features some of the most popular songs and artists across the holiday music canon, pairing timeless classics with contemporary favorites."

No "Christmas Day" or "Santa's Beard". That release can't be taken seriously

According to someone who would know.

Seriously, there was a Beach Boys Love You condom?!  Amazing.
