It’s never too early to celebrate the holiday season as Kelly Clarkson made sure Christmas came early this year.
Clarkson is celebrating the announcement of her ninth studio album When Christmas Comes Around… with the release of her brand new single “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You).”
“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,'” Kelly said in a statement. “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.”
She continued; “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.”
Christmas Comes Around… is a 15-track collection of original works and holiday classics. She’ll bring in some serious star power on the record as Ariana Grande, Chris Stapleton, and Brett Eldredge are set for collaborations.
The album will be released on October 15.
