I'm here with some new Christmas songs to add to your playlist. So, you’ve got the tree up, you’ve wrapped the gifts, you’ve bought all of the best foods for the big day, now all you need is the perfect playlist to get you into the full swing of the festive period! Christmas music is a genre that still relies on the old classics that everybody grew up loving, but it is true that we can sometimes forget that new seasonal songs come out each and every year to try to make it onto our list of favourites. 2017 has certainly been no exception, with loads of new Christmas music being released to compete for your playlist space. Here are some of the very best new Christmas songs to add to your playlist.
1. I’ll Be Home for Christmas by Demi Lovato
One of the reigning princesses of pop, Demi Lovato has breathed new magical life into this festive favourite. Sometimes all it takes to make your Christmas feel fresh and new is a different take on a holiday classic, and Demi’s powerful tones have never been more appealing than right here. That's why this one tops my list of new Christmas songs to add to your playlist.
2. Lil Snowman by Mariah Carey
You can’t go through Christmas without a bit of Mariah Carey, but this year she has given us something new to add alongside the rest of her festive classics! Lil Snowman is a fun rock and roll style song and something a little different from Mariah’s usual pop and gospel festive features.
3. Say All I Want for Christmas by Nick Jonas and Shania Twain
Shania Twain has enjoyed a huge comeback this year, and she’s topping it off with a wonderful Christmas collab with none other than Nick Jonas. There is a country twist to this great song, it will definitely add something unusual to your festive playlist.
4. Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree by Miley Cryus
Miley is treating us to some old school festive fun with her great version of this Christmas classic. Her voice has a vintage quality to it sometimes that really suits the swinging, swaying nature of this seasonal favourite.
5. Deck the Halls by Pentatonix
Pentatonix is always coming out with something amazing at this time of year, and 2017 is no different. Their acapella version of Deck The Halls is absolutely not to be missed!
6. Santa’s Coming for Us by Sia
Sia lifted everyone’s spirits in November when she released an album full of completely original Christmas songs. She has managed to stay true to her signature style whilst also creating a list of modern Christmas classics!
7. Christmas Eve by Kelly Clarkson
Kelly became the new queen of Christmas a few years ago with her amazing album Wrapped In Red, and she’s back at it again with this special festive single!
8. Santa Baby by Gwen Stefani
The signature style of Gwen Stefani is impossible to ignore, and she has put her talents to great use this Christmas with a whole new holiday album. This version of Santa Baby is among the highlights!
