Lea Michele

Lea Michele attends The Hollywood Reporter's Empowerment In Entertainment Event 2019 at Milk Studios on April 30, 2019 in Los Angeles. 

Lea Michele is one of the earliest carolers coming your way because she just released her cover of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” the first single off her upcoming holiday record, Christmas in the City, out Oct. 25. 

The jovial single precedes the holiday jubilee with Michele’s enhanced vocal chops, which she’ll extend for 10 more tracks on her first-ever Christmas album. Since she was a girl, Michele loves spending the most wonderful time of the year in her hometown of New York City. 

“I always go back home and spend Christmas in New York, so when I think of the holidays, I think of the city,” she wrote in a press statement. “This album is really a celebration of that magic and spirit of my hometown. I am so excited to share the songs I grew up with and I hope it brings listeners a lot of joy this season!

Christmas in the City is available for pre-order here, and listen to “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” below.
