In 1989 -- five years before Mariah Carey ever released her first holiday tune -- a novelty band called Vince Vance & the Valiants released a track called "All I Want for Christmas is You."

It's gone on to become a popular holiday song, especially on the country charts, and now, Kelly Clarkson is putting her own spin on it.

"I have another early Christmas gift for y'all!" Clarkson wrote on her socials. "My version of Vince Vance & the Valiants' 'All I Want for Christmas is You' is comin' on November 13th!"

While Carey's song has a retro '60s girl group sound to it, Vince Vance & the Valiants' track -- sung by a woman named Lisa Layne -- sounds like it could have been recorded in the 1950s.

Melodically, it's reminiscent of the much-covered classic 1952 song "You Belong to Me."

When it's released, it'll be Clarkson's second holiday track of 2020 -- she recently released a duet with country star Brett Eldredge called "Under the Mistletoe."
