Kelly Clarkson has released When Christmas Comes Around…, her ninth studio album via Atlantic Records. The 15-track set sees the American Idol OG winner reunite with long time collaborators Jason Halbert, Jesse Shatkin and more for a mix of new original songs and Christmas classics.

When Christmas Comes Around… captures how different the holidays can be for all of us during the varying stages of our lives, and I hope everyone can find something on the record they relate to. Hopefully the happier songs, but if not, hey… you’re not alone!” said Kelly in a statement

From the show-stopping duet “Santa, Can’t You Hear Me” featuring her fellow The Voice coach, Ariana Grande to the emotional ballad “Merry Christmas (To The One I Used To Know),” When Christmas Comes Around… explores a wide range of holiday emotions.

The album also features cheerful “Glow” featuring Chris Stapleton and the bold and cheeky lead single “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You).”
