Kelly Clarkson isn’t afraid to speak her mind as a talk show host and a coach on NBC’s “The Voice,” and she also isn’t afraid to release a Christmas album in October!

When Christmas Comes Around…,” a collection of classic Christmas songs and brand new original tunes, was released on October 15, 2021. A few duets are featured on the album, including one with Ariana Grande, who recently joined the coaching panel on “The Voice.”

The duet, called “Santa, Can’t You Hear Me,” is a rocking pop ballad in the tradition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” or Grande’s own song from 2014, “Santa Tell Me.”

Clarkson ‘Cancels’ an Ex on One Song Off the Album

Clarkson wanted to make sure that her Christmas album had emotional range, so she included a breakup bop called “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You).”

The song reflects on a soured relationship but Clarkson declares that Christmas will still be enjoyed, with or without her ex. According to Entertainment Weekly, Clarkson explained in a press statement why she wanted to explore different themes on the album and why she named the album “When Christmas Comes Around…”

“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,” Clarkson said.

Watch the lyric video for “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You)” below:
