Album is due October 15th via Atlantic Record
GRAMMY-winning global superstar Kelly Clarkson has announced her second Christmas album, When Christmas Comes Around… for October 15th via Atlantic Records. Preceded by the lead single, “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You),” the album explores a wide range of holiday emotions and experiences anchored by Clarkson’s incomparable vocal prowess. We were the first to bring you this news ahead of the official announcement.
“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,'” Clarkson shares. “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 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”) & Brett Eldredge (2020’s hit single “Under The Mistletoe”).
The album marks the latest album from Clarkson since 2017’s Meaning of Life and her second holiday offering following 2013’s Wrapped In Red.
