Joy to the World is the fifth studio album from the band Pink Martini. It was released on November 16, 2010 under the band's own label, Heinz Records. The album was recorded and mixed at Kung Fu Bakery in Portland, Oregon from May 2008 to May-August 2010. Their rendition of "We Three Kings" was released as a Starbucks free download.
Pink Martini begins Joy to the World with an intimate rendition of White Christmas that’s so faithful to the original that it features the sunny California prelude that was included when it debuted in the film Holiday Inn, then they follow it with a lush orchestral rendition - sung in Japanese. Yet quirks like these don’t feel kitschy; aside from Santa Baby, Joy to the World’s lone indulgence in camp, the album sings of peace and celebration in many tongues.

They draw inspiration from music from all over the world – crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop. Band leader, Thomas Lauderdale describes the band's sound as "music of the world without being world music. If the United Nations had a house band in 1962 hopefully Pink Martini would be that band. My hope is that we’re creating exquisite musical wallpaper which can be turned up or down, and played on almost any occasion, from background music to a love affair to vacuuming around the house.
