Kelly Clarkson is a busy gal!
In addition to hosting her Emmy Award-winning self-titled daytime talk show and being a judge on season 21 of The Voice, the 39-year-old singer recently announced that she's releasing a brand-new holiday album in 2021.
Kelly first shared news of her upcoming Christmas album, titled When Christmas Comes Around, back in September, when she revealed the title of one of the new tracks, an undeniable divorce ballad titled "Christmas Isn't Canceled (Just You)."
Now, the American Idol winner is revealing yet another title off the new album — only this time, it has another familiar name in the credits.
“Y'all ready for my new song with @ChrisStapleton?” she captioned an Instagram clip in which curtains were pulled back to reveal a neon sign spelling out the word "Glow," which is the title of the track. Although the song (and the album) aren’t out until October 15, the clip featured a snippet of the song — and fans are fawning over the way Kelly and Chris’ voices blend together.
“The X-mas duet of the decade,” one fan wrote. “Can’t even cope! My two [favorites] together,” someone else swooned. “I don’t know how the Earth will stay on its axis with these two voices together,” another fan commented.
Amazing voices aside, some fans are also noticing that the lyrics of the song are full of holiday cheer, but a touch of sadness, too.
“Nothing has changed/ I still wish you could be here/ Wrapped up in my arms, spending Christmas with me/ When it gets cold, is when I notice the…” Kelly and Chris sing in harmony before the song cuts off.
The song with Chris won't be the only duet on the album; Kelly also dropped a snippet of "Santa, Can't You Hear Me" with her Voice co-star, Ariana Grande. "This next snippet features my girl @ArianaGrande! So excited for y'all to hear "Santa Can’t You Hear Me" on October 15th!" wrote Kelly.
Fans were equally as excited for this holiday pairing. "Queens of vocals," wrote one. "The duo we never knew we needed!" exclaimed another.
Of course, this isn’t Kelly's first foray into holiday music. She released her first Christmas album, Wrapped in Red, back in 2013, and she sang a reimagined duet of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with John Legend back in 2019. In both instances, the songs were memorable, so we can only expect the same of her upcoming holiday debut!
