The 15-track project, released via Atlantic Records, includes covers of classic holiday anthems, such as “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Last Christmas,” plus new collaborations, including the swoon-worthy duet “Santa, Can’t You Hear Me,” featuring her fellow The Voice coach Ariana Grande. “Santa, Can’t You Hear Me” is an original song, co-written by Clarkson and Aben Eubanks and produced by Jason Halbert.
Clarkson released the sassy seasonal lead single “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You)” in late September. When Christmas Comes Around… is the second holiday album Clarkson has released, following 2013’s Wrapped in Red, which topped Billboard‘s Top Holiday Albums chart and peaked at No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard 200 tally.
“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,” Clarkson said in a press statement. “Hopefully the happier songs, but if not, hey… you’re not alone!”
