There’s no denying that we love, love, love holiday music. Two of our all-time favorite Christmas albums are Luther Vandross’ This Christmas and Mariah Carey’s first Christmas album, Merry Christmas (we actually own both of her Christmas albums. Currently, Mariah’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ and Luther’s ‘Every Year, Every Christmas’ songs are in constant rotation along with Darlene Love‘s Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) and the Temptations ‘Silent Night’ on our i-Pod during the weeks leading up to Christmas. But that’s about to change thanks to Kelly Clarkson’s new release Wrapped in Red.
The album’s song list ranges from a brassy ‘Run Run Rudolph’ to a ‘Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel’ and includes a few original songs such as ‘Underneath the Tree.’ The song, which Clarkson wrote with producer Greg Kurstin, is shaping up to be one of the most popular new Christmas songs since Mariah Carey introduced All I Want for Christmas Is You in 1994.
“The label kept pressuring us to make some hit classic song, and, we’re like, well, obviously, we’re going to try for that, but you never know,” Clarkson says. “I just wanted to make it something you could decorate the tree to or be shopping in the mall and hear – one of those fun songs that gets stuck in your head.”
Kelly Clarkson has a lot to forward to Christmas this year because her Christmas album, Wrapped in Red, has just been certified platinum, her holiday special, Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale, airs Wednesday (10 p.m. ET/PT, NBC), this will be her first Christmas married to Brandon Blackstock and she’s 12 weeks pregnant!
