Kris Allen New Christmas Song – StageIt – VIDEO


Kris Allen introduced a new original Christmas song during a special holiday stage-it concert tonight (Dec 12).

The American Idol 8 winner accompanied himself on guitar on the upbeat song that declares “Baby it ain’t Christmas Without You.”

“I don’t even know the name of it!” said Kris before he began. Snow, mistletoe and the anticipation of heading home are all included here.

Check it out below.

    This is good. I hope he records it or does something with it. It was a fun StageIt show — Kris sounded really good and it’s exciting to hear he will start recording his new album in January

    Pre-Christmas song banter talking about recording his album.

  • snappp

    If you want the whole show, I have it here in 7 parts. Banter/QA are after each song.

  • nyc57

    Fun song.Sounds like he’ll probably record it next year.He sounds great and seems really excited about the new album.I am too.

  • tripp_ncwy

    On a side note, it does appear Kris has some new ink on his chest;

  • nyc57

    I noticed that when he did those college concerts.It looks like an O for Oliver over his heart..I don’t normally like tattoos,but that is very sweet and thankfully very small.

  • tripp_ncwy

    Wonder how realistic the “early 2014” for the album to be out when he will not start recording until January. All that along with getting a single out to try to get some radio play & ramp up promo for the album. All of this along with looking for tour dates.

    Why yes, Kris, I did enjoy that! Very much! Good vibe to the song and his voice sounds as good as ever. I’d love to have a recorded version to add to the other Christmas songs he’s done. Of course I can’t get one word (help!)–what is by the fireplace?? I always have such trouble with lyrics–haha!

    I’m sorry I missed the show, but thanks for putting it on youtube, snapp! Is the “sweet girl” Mary Steenburgen?

  • DavidL

    Hm… looks like a mic to me. Sorry to burst your bubbles

  • DavidL

    Just love Kris, definitely still my favourite male idol winner to date, possibly my favourite, close call between him and Carrie. Good thing they like each other, haha

  • nyc57

    It definitejy is a tattoo.You can see it in other concerts,We thought it was shadows or a mic at first.but you can clearly see the O.He must have gt it right after Oliver was born.

    I love the new Christmas song, I wish I can buy it right now.
    What a great StageIt Christmas show, too short though.

  • knave

    Blankets by the fireplace. :) And yes I really enjoyed this! Haven’t been following Kris lately, was actually just wondering at work tonight if he had any new music coming soon so this was a nice treat.

  • nyc57

    His album will be out early 2014.

  • Miz

    Recording doesn’t take that long.

  • Miz

    The StageIt show was way too short, but thoroughly enjoyable.

    I love the new Christmas song. Very catchy and upbeat, it’s a song that has you almost instantly singing along to. Shame that it’s not available on iTunes NOW, but understandable that it’s too late for this season to put it up as a new song there. (yes, I know there are mp3s out there)

    I also wondered if the ‘sweet girl’ Kris wrote it with is Mary Steenburgen. Kris plays his cards very close to the chest.

  • Pippygirl

    I wonder what Kris meant when he said he is excited for “who it’s going to be with”?
    Anyway, the Christmas song is very catchy and sweet, as Christmas songs tend to be. It was very good to see Kris play the guitar with such ease.

  • nncw

    I really enjoyed the show as well. And am also curious about whether he was referring to who he would be singing with, or who would be producing the album or who he had signed up with for his next album. The new Christmas song was extra special gift to his fans!

  • Jonins

    I saw that tattoo on one of his college concerts. To be honest, I am not really happy with it but it’s his body, so… I want his body unpainted and remain as smooth and clean. Maybe my age is showing here LOL. :)

  • Miz

    Yes, the ‘who it’s going to be with’ has me intrigued. Producers? Co-writes? Band members? Duets? Label?

  • Miz

    Nope. It’s a tattoo. :)

  • Gerry DeSanto

    I wish Kris would reveal soon whether he has a label or is going to go Indie.

  • hoosiermama

    Ah-blankets! Yes! Thank you! :-)

  • Porfivor Nixon

    really good

  • Face

    like it :)

  • linsmile

    I love this song! Looking forward to hearing it on a Christmas album, whenever in the future that may happen. I loved the entire show. Looking forward to hearing the next album (and “who it’s with”)!

  • DavidL

    I love how many Kris fans are still on this blog. Love it!

  • mtlfan2

    i like the song!! well done Kris :)

  • MissMyEm

    I really like the Christmas song. Came in late for the show but thoroughly enjoyed what I heard, made all the better when he responded to two of my posts. Thanks to the videographers who captured the show, allowing me to see it all. I’m excited for the new CD and curious to know who it’s with. I think I’m getting use to Kris’ teasing.
