So! This record features primarily seasonal favorites — the title track, of course, as well as “Sleigh Ride,” “Silver Bells” and “White Christmas” — plus two original songs: “It’s Christmastime” and “Blue Crystal Glow.” As she explained to Billboard: “The great thing about Christmas music is I can cover a lot of territory, from country to jazz style vocals to classical music, arias. That’s what drew me to the last one.” Indeed!

No word yet on an official release date, but expect it, um, before Christmas.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Do You Hear What I Hear? It’s Christmastime What Child Is This? Panis Angelicus Blue Crystal Glow Sleigh Ride White Christmas Silver Bells The Christmas Song I’ll Be Home for Christmas
