Kelly Clarkson’s ‘When Christmas Comes Around…’ Album Arrives With Festive Ariana Grande Duet: Listen
It felt like Christmas morning on Friday (Oct. 15) when Kelly Clarkson released her brand-new holiday album When Christmas Comes Around…
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.
