Christmas Queen: Mariah Carey Announces New Holiday Track “The Star”
It may be six months until December 25, but pop icon and official queen of Christmas Mariah Carey is always prepared to deck the halls. The elusive chanteuse already has a claim on the holiday season with her festive single “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” but today (July 26) she announced that she would be unleashing another Christmas song later this year. The song in question is called “The Star” and is featured in Columbia Picture’s animated film of the same name. “Very excited to share a tease for the new #TheStarMovie which will be out in theaters in time for Christmas! #NewSong #TheStar,” Mimi tweeted before sharing the movie’s official trailer.
Kelly Clarkson and Kristin Chenoweth are both starring in the movie, which tells the story of the farm animals that helped make the first Christmas possible. With all of these big-voiced divas attached to the project, it’s safe to assume that the soundtrack will be one of the best and most joyful to come out this year. It remains to be seen if “The Star” will replicate the meteoric success of Mimi’s seminal holiday classic; however, it’s sure to be another mainstay on playlists as the weather cools down. While her standard singles have been falling a little short of expectations lately, she’ll always have the holidays. Check out the trailer and Mariah’s announcement below.
