Mariah Carey says all she wants for Christmas is you, over and over again every holiday, but Kelly Clarkson has a different sentiment that turns the romance of mistletoe, snow and winter on its ear. She’s canceling her love this time around.
Clarkson wasn’t waiting for winter when she released her latest track “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You)” Thursday.
The song is one of the selections on her upcoming album “When Christmas Comes Around ...” which will be released on Oct. 15.
There is meaning behind the album’s title, Clarkson said in a statement.
“My purpose for choosing this lyric for being the title of this project was to bring forth a sense of reality to the fact that we are probably all in very different places ‘when Christmas comes around,’” Clarkson said, according to Rolling Stone. “Some of us consumed with a new love, some of us reminded of loss, some filled with optimism for the coming new year, others elated for some much deserved time away from the chaos our work lives can sometimes bring us.”
In addition to the breakup holiday song, she belts out holiday classics including “Merry Christmas Baby,” “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” and “Santa Baby.”
She even takes a page out of Carey’s songbook with “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” according to Billboard.
This is Clarkson’s second holiday album, according to Rolling Stone. Her first, “Wrapped in Red,” was released in 2013.
