Do you hear that faint sound in the distance? Yeah, that’s the sound of Christmas coming. Have you put up your decorations yet? I’m not sure why you even bothered taking them down. Anyway, to get you in the mood, Kelly Clarkson has released a new Christmas single to get those festive feelings flowing. It’s called ‘Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You)’.

The track is taken from Clarkson’s second Christmas album, ‘When Christmas Comes Around’, which features collaborations with Ariana Grande and Chris Stapleton. It’s out on 15 Oct, by which time we’ll all be thinking about Easter. So you should probably get listening to that first single right now.

Speaking about the title of the album, Clarkson says: “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”, she goes on.

“Wherever you are, and whatever you may be experiencing, I wanted everyone to be able to connect to a message on this album. Each year you may even have a new favourite 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”.

How lovely. And, if where you are in your life means that you’re looking to use Christmas to settle a personal vendetta, well, this new single’s for you. Here’s the lyric video for ‘Christmas Isn’t Cancelled (Just You)’. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
