Last month, Kelly Clarkson said in an interview that she had "a couple of Christmas things dropping," including a cover song and duet with country star Brett Eldredge.
Well, that duet, which Clarkson co-wrote, has now arrived.
The upbeat, retro-sounding track is called "Under the Mistletoe." "I know it's a little early, but I just couldn't wait to release this one!" Clarkson wrote in a post announcing the song's release.
"Magic everywhere/ Standing over there/ Santa hear my prayer/ Here under the mistletoe," the duo sing in the fun track. "All I want/ All I need/ Is here under the mistletoe."

"I love writing new Christmas songs that have a classic, throwback vibe," Clarkson said in a statement. "Brett is such an amazing singer and I was so impressed by his classic sound on his Christmas record, so it was a perfect match for picking a duet partner for ‘Under the Mistletoe.'"
In 2016, Eldredge released a popular holiday album called "Glow," which featured his hit duet with Meghan Trainor, "Baby It's Cold Outside."
He said he was "blown away by the soul and joy" of "Under the Mistletoe" when he first heard the song.
"I couldn’t wait to go in and sing it, and once I heard our voices together, I knew we landed something very special," he shared in a statement.
