It’s already been a month since the first Christmas tree showed up to Costco, and by now you might have noticed a full aisle carved out for Christmas decorations at your neighborhood CVS. Nevermind that the calendar just switched to the fall season today — Christmas is coming whether you like it or not.
So, of course September is not too early to start talking Christmas albums. And leave it to Gwen Stefani to make a snow angel in the autumn leaves with both a new Christmas album and a single from that collection.
You Make It Feel Like Christmas will drop on October 6 via Interscope, and will feature Stefani’s take on both traditional songs (“Jingle Bells,” “Let It Snow,” and “White Christmas”) and more younger-appealing Christmas classics (“Last Christmas” and “Santa Baby). The collection will also offer a half-dozen original Christmas tunes from the No Doubt frontperson.
The jewel in the crown might be the album’s first sampling, a collaboration between Stefani and her romantic partner/former The Voice co-host Blake Shelton also titled “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” which you can hear above. The jolly country-pop crossover tune was written together by the pair along with Justin Tranter, while Tranter helped write the other five album originals along with Stefani and busbee.
