Seasons is a 1977 album by Bing Crosby. The album is particularly significant in that it was the final studio album completed before Crosby's death on October 14, 1977; it was released posthumously, and was marketed with the tagline "The Closing Chapter". In 2010, it was re-released on CD by Collectors' Choice Music, featuring several previously-unreleased bonus tracks.
