Christmas Time! Kelly Clarkson releases her brand album “When Christmas Comes Around… ” via Atlantic Records
The 15-track collection sees Clarkson reunite with long time collaborators Jason Halbert, Jesse Shatkin and more for a mix of new original songs and Christmas classics.
Kelly Clarkson shares, “’When Christmas Comes Around…’ captures how different the holidays can be for all of us during the varying stages of our lives, and I hope everyone can find something on the record they relate to. Hopefully the happier songs, but if not, hey… you’re not alone!”
From the show-stopping duet “Santa, Can’t You Hear Me” featuring Ariana Grande to the hauntingly beautiful ballad “Merry Christmas (To The One I Used To Know),” When Christmas Comes Around… explores a wide range of holiday emotions and experiences anchored by Clarkson’s incomparable vocal prowess.
The album also features cheerful standout “Glow” featuring Chris Stapleton and the fabulously bold lead single “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You). A festive album visualizer will also be unveiled this afternoon via Clarkson’s official YouTube channel, bringing the stunning album even more to life.
When Christmas Comes Around… marks the latest album from Clarkson since 2017’s Meaning of Life and her second holiday offering following 2013’s Wrapped In Red. Meanwhile, the past month alone has seen Clarkson kick off the third season of the six-time Daytime Emmy Award-winning The Kelly Clarkson Show and return as three-time champion coach on the 21st season of The Voice.
