It’s official – Kelly Clarkson is teaming up with Brett Eldredge on a Christmas song and it’s being released before the end of the month.
The superstar previously teased the collab, but confirmed it on Thursday via social media, writing, “Told y’all Christmas is coming early.”
The superstar initially shared the news during an extensive interview on NBC’s “Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist” podcast. After revealing plans to release a new, full-length album next year, Clarkson revealed that she has two new Christmas songs on the way for the upcoming holiday season.
“I actually have a couple Christmas things dropping too, that were very random,” she said at the time. “A duet with Brett Eldredge, who I love, that I wrote, and a cover song. So it’s like an A/B side thing that’s coming out for Christmas.”
The three-time Grammy winner went on to share that she decided to release something for the holidays in an effort to hold fans over until more new music comes out in 2021.
“Fans are always asking, ‘can you just drop anything?’ Everyone is sad. Everyone is feeling it,” she said, adding that her fans are telling her, “The world has gone to crap, can you just release something?”
As of Thursday, Clarkson has yet to announce the release of a second Christmas single.
“Under the Mistletoe,” featuring Kelly Clarkson and Brett Eldredge, will be released on Wednesday, October 28.
