Kelly Clarkson’s keeping busy this year. Besides having her eighth studio album Meaning of Life coming up on October 27, she also wrote a children’s Christmas book titled River Rose and the Magical Christmas, which follows a little girl named River Rose -- inspired by Clarkson's 3-year-old daughter of the same name -- who embarks on a Christmas adventure to the North Pole with her dog Joplin.

The book is a holiday follow-up to Clarkson's first children's book, River Rose and the Magical Lullaby, which she released last fall. The holiday picture book is accompanied by a new, original Christmas song by Clarkson, “Christmas Eve,” featuring bells and a jubilant horn-filled melody that captures the magic of the holidays. 

"Christmas Eve" marks Clarkson's first holiday track since her 2013 full-length Wrapped In Red. Pre-order River Rose and the Magical Christmas here ahead of its Oct. 24 release, and listen to Clarkson's latest Christmas track below.
