NEW ALBUM: KELLY CLARKSON | WHEN CHRISTMAS COMES AROUND...

Kelly Clarkson is bringing on Christmas early with her album ‘When Christmas Comes Around" via Atlantic Records. Clarkson and Chris Stapleton have paired up for a Christmas collaboration called “Glow,” just one of three duets on Clarkson’s album, that also includes a pairing with Ariana Grande on “Santa Can’t You Hear Me.” In addition to the originals, Clarkson will cover songs like “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Santa Baby,” and “Jingle Bell Rock.” As a bonus track, Clarkson included her 2020 duet with Brett Eldredge, “Under the Mistletoe.” It was produced by Jesse Shatkin, Jason Halbert, Joseph Trapanese, and Aben Eubanks. It is her second Christmas album after "Wrapped in Red" in 2013 and her eighth studio album, "Meaning of Life," in 2017. “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 are 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 to be able to connect to a message on this album. Each year you may even have a new favourite 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.”
