Kelly Clarkson will release a second Christmas album, ‘When Christmas Comes Around…’, on 15th October via Atlantic Records.
The album features the new single ‘Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You)’, which is available to stream and download now.
Discussing the title of the album, Clarkson shares:
“My purpose for choosing this lyric for being the title of this project was to bring forth a sense of reality to the fact that we are probably all in very different places emotionally ‘when Christmas comes around.’ Some of us consumed with a new love, some of us reminded of loss, some filled with optimism for the coming new year, others elated for some much deserved time away from the chaos our work lives can sometimes bring us. Wherever you are, and whatever you may be experiencing, I wanted everyone to all be able to connect to a message on this album. Each year you may even have a new favorite depending on where you are in your life, but while change can be unpredictable there is no better time of year, in my opinion, to breathe hope into one’s life and let possibility wander.”
The 15-track collection features a mix of new original songs and Christmas classics, alongside show-stopping collaborations with Ariana Grande (‘Santa, Can’t You Hear Me’), Chris Stapleton (‘Glow’) and Brett Eldredge (2020’s hit single ‘Under The Mistletoe’).
‘When Christmas Comes Around…’ is Clarkson’s ninth studio album and her first since 2017’s ‘Meaning of Life’. It’s her second holiday offering following 2013’s ‘Wrapped In Red’.
