Carrie Underwood will release her first-ever Christmas album, My Gift, on Sept. 25.
The holiday offering will feature a combination of beloved traditional favorites and original material that celebrate Carrie’s faith and the spiritual nature of Christmas.
“It’s really hard naming a Christmas album,” says Carrie during a video trailer for the upcoming album. “I tried to think about the songs that are in it, so I started thinking about individual songs and one of my favorites is ‘Little Drummer Boy’ . . . I love music. I love singing. That is my personal gift that I have that I get to do, that I’m so blessed to do, and I want to use that gift and I want to give it back to Jesus. That’s kind of why I landed on My Gift as an album title.”
My Gift was produced by Greg Wells and mixed by Serban Ghenea. The album features a world-class orchestra led by conductor David Campbell.
Over the years, Carrie has released a number of holiday tracks, including “Do You Hear What I Hear,” “O Holy Night,” “The First Noel” and more, however, the upcoming record will be her first full-length Christmas album. My Gift will follow the release of Carrie’s sixth studio album, Cry Pretty, which dropped in September 2018.
My Gift will also be released on vinyl on Oct. 30. The track list, songwriters and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.
