It is no secret that Kelly Clarkson is a busy woman nowadays. From her highly successful talk show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” to her coaching stint on The Voice and being a full time Mom, she is no stranger to being busy. Now, she is back with a brand new Christmas single, “Christmas Isn’t Cancelled (Just You.)
Right off the bat, you can tell that this is a much different Christmas song, than her previous releases. She references a few of them in the lyrics, such as “Winter Dreams,” “Underneath The Tree,” and “My Favorite Things.” This is the ultimate break up holiday song. There is no doubt about it, that this single is an instant classic. She also announced the new album, When Christmas Comes Around.
Speaking about her upcoming record, she said: “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. 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.
“Wherever you are, and whatever you may be experiencing, I wanted everyone to all 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.”
When Christmas Comes Around will contain: Merry Christmas Baby, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You,) Merry Christmas (To the One I Used To Know,) Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Glow (with Chris Stapleton,) Santa Baby, Santa Can’t You Hear Me (Feat.
