Kelly Clarkson is singing us into the holiday season. 

The “Broken & Beautiful” singer will be releasing a Christmas album that will be her first full-length album since Meaning of Life came out four years ago. 

The songstress has already dropped the first single—a poppy tune entitled “Christmas Isn’t Cancelled (Just You)” that is likely motivated by her recent divorce from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. 

The cover of When Christmas Comes Around… features Clarkson wearing a glamorous purple gown, with the daytime host saying the title was inspired by the different emotional state around the holiday. “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.,” she said.

There will be 15 tracks on the LP, with Ariana Grande featured on “Santa, Can’t You Hear Me”, and Chris Stapleton and Brett Eldredge starring on two other songs. 

When Christmas Comes Around… hits shelves on October 15—just in time to put in your Christmas gift requests.
