Charming Canadian crooner Michael Buble is set for an encore on HSN later this month, and this time he’ll not only be selling his fragrance but singing. Oh, and he has a new CD.

Buble will be appearing, and also performing live, on the No. 2 home shopping network Oct. 17.

For his return, he will also perform, according to HSN’s Facebook page.

The network is already taking orders for Buble’s new CD, “Nobody But Me,” which drops Oct. 21.

Here’s what says.

The one and only Michael Buble does it once again. Nobody But Me is the award-winning singer’s first album in three years and is his ninth studio album. This exciting new collection includes original pop tunes, breathtaking reinvention of classics and beautiful standards.

Buble says, “I don’t know that I’ve ever had this much fun working on an album. It was especially thrilling to collaborate with my band who understands that I want to sound better than I’ve ever sounded.”

Nobody But Me highlights Buble’s talent as a profound interpreter of the American songbook. This great collection is a must-have for the avid Buble fan.

Crooner Michael Buble’s HSN Fragrance Sells Out

September 9, 2016

We’re catching up here, but better late than never, we guess.

Crooner Michael Buble’s perfume was apparently a big hit on HSN. Laid up as we are, we saw several of his appearances, and he seemed very charming, genuine and down-to-earth.

We can’t fathom why people would buy a perfume they have never smelled from TV, but apparently a lot of shoppers have no qualms about it.

Here’s the press release:

Michael Bublé’s New Fine Fragrance “By Invitation” Sells Out During HSN Launch

NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Singer Michael Bublé had fans swooning when he appeared on HSN last week, to debut his exciting new fine fragrance for women, By Invitation.

The two piece set, featuring the 3.4 fl. oz Eau de Parfum Spray and the 1 fl. oz purse spray, sold out of more than 21,000 units in less than 24 hours.

Additionally, Michael’s upcoming album Nobody But Me, available later this year, was available for presale and sold nearly 6,000 units with little on-air promotion. The international superstar launched his first ever fragrance with the leading entertainment and lifestyle retailer and shared his inspiration for the fragrance and how it came to market.

“While we’re beyond pleased with Michael’s visit, his success on-air was no surprise! Michael’s loyal and engaging fan base follows him wherever he goes; from the concert stage to the studios of HSN,” said Alicia Valencia, SVP Beauty Merchandising, HSN. “We’re thrilled that his fan base aligns so well with our customer demographic, which resulted in a sell-out visit. We are eager to work with Michael and the team at Elizabeth Arden on a return visit during the holiday season.”

“It’s no secret that I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s in every note I sing and every song I write. The idea was to create a special ‘invitation’ to fans into my new world of fragrance. I’m inviting women to enjoy a beautiful scent that represents my personal taste and imagination. By Invitation is what I’d call ‘love in a bottle,'” commented Bublé. “It was an amazing experience, sharing my fragrance and story, with my fans and HSN customers,” Bublé noted about his time at HSN.

Described as “a floral oriental gourmand, encompassing the iconic flowers of love,” By Invitation is an elegant fine fragrance that’s enlightened with a fresh fruity accent. Starting with tempting top notes of red fruits and bergamot with added heart notes of lily of the valley, wild jasmine and spicy inflections of peony, By Invitation wraps with a warm base of sandalwood-musk and addictive vanillas.

“HSN has proven time and time again, to be a successful launch partner for our celebrity and designer fragrances,” said Tamara Steele, SVP, US Prestige Beauty Group at Elizabeth Arden. “From the pre-show promotion to the social media engagement, to the on-air execution, we look to HSN to deliver an exceptional experience for fans and customers alike.”

Michael Bublé’s new studio album, Nobody But Me is scheduled to be released on October 21st on Warner Bros./Reprise Records. It is his first studio album in three years.

Stewart will do his second live performance on HSN when he returns on Oct. 26 to debut his first-ever holiday CD, “Merry Christmas, Baby” before it officially drops on Oct. 30.

“We are thrilled to have Rod return to HSN to launch his first holiday CD with us,” Andy Sheldon, HSN’s executive vice president of Television, Live Events and Creative said in a canned statement.

“Rod knows how to engage an audience with his incredible voice and irresistible charm and we look forward to another successful appearance when he takes the stage with David Foster in October. ‘HSN Live’ has become a highly respected launch platform within the music industry and we are excited about the high caliber of artists that want to debut their latest projects.”

Surprisingly, there was no canned quote from Stewart. But there was one from his record label.

“We are excited to bring Rod Stewart back to the HSN audience,” said Mike Rittberg, vice president if Artist Development & Promotion for Verve Music Group. “They’ve been a great partner for Rod in the past and this is a great opportunity to showcase Rod’s talent and this amazing new CD for millions of fans.”

HSN customers will have the opportunity to pre-order an exclusive 2-disc bundle for $14.95, which includes the new release, “Merry Christmas, Baby” and a “Best Of” CD that features Stewart’s greatest hits, including “Maggie May,” “Reason to Believe” and “Twistin the Night Away.”

“Merry Christmas” has holiday classics, including duets with Michael Buble on “Winter Wonderland”; Mary J. Blige on “We Three Kings”; and Cee-Lo Green for the title tune “Merry Christmas, Baby.” “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” is a “virtual” duet with Ella Fitzgerald featuring Chris Botti.

The balance of the tunes include “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”; “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”; Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas,” “Blue Christmas,” “When You Wish Upon A Star,” “Silent Night” and “Auld Lang Syne.”

The album’s one original track, “Red-Suited Super Man,” is composed by Rod Stewart, David Foster and Amy Foster and features Trombone Shorty.

Prior to the HSN Live Concert Series event, a special pre-show will stream live on HSN’s Facebook page at 7:30 p.m., offering fans exclusive behind-the-scenes access as Stewart prepares to take the stage.
