Carrie Underwood welcomed some special guests on her upcoming new Christmas album, My Gift, collaborating with John Legend on the original song “Hallelujah,” and inviting 5-year-old son Isaiah to appear on the holiday classic that inspired the album title, “Little Drummer Boy.” Underwood has revealed the track list for the new project, due out digitally and on CD on Sept. 25 and on special red vinyl edition on Oct. 30.
In anticipation of the Fall album, Underwood has also released the new original song, “Let There Be Peace,” which is available now and as an instant grat track when the album is pre-ordered. Acclaimed gospel quartet The McCrary Sisters, who have performed backing vocals on previous Underwood songs including “Choctaw County Affair” and “The Champion,” can also be heard on the album.
My Gift features a combination of traditional holiday favorites like “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Away In A Manger,” as well as several originals. Two of the new songs are written by Underwood, frequent collaborator Brett James (“Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Something In The Water”), and her Cry Pretty co-producer, David Garcia.
My Gift can be pre-ordered in various formats now, and an exclusive version of the My Gift CD and special white vinyl with a bonus Christmas card from Underwood will be available only at Target. New merchandise bundles are also available.
