While the traditional classics continue to take over our holiday playlists (Mariah Carey, I’m looking at you), artists are still creating new songs that are soon to become our new favorites as we count down the days until Christmas.
Here are some of the best new Christmas songs for 2018…
We The Kings finally took out their first Christmas album and their new song ‘There is a Light’ is one of two new originals songs they’ve written for the album. Singer Travis Clark told Seventeen the story behind the song.
“Each Christmas I would wait up as long as I could staring out my bedroom window to see Santa Claus and the reindeer coming to my house,” he said. “One year I could have sworn I saw Rudolph’s red nose lighting the way and I truly believed it was Santa. Realistically, it was probably an airplane…or was it?”
Lindsey is known for her violin skills, but it’s her voice that takes over in her new song ‘Warmer in the Winter’. Lindsey opened up to Seventeen about how the song came about.
“I love classic Christmas music so I wanted to write a song that had that an effortless timeless feel — a song that could sit next to Frank Sinatra on a playlist and they could be friends.”
A new song that feels just like a classic, John Legend created one of the sweetest songs that will certainly get everyone at the party dancing.
If you didn’t really know that this was a new song, you would probably think that it was one you heard in your childhood. Ingrid Michaelson continues to use her soft voice to her advantage in this sweet, romantic tune.
Jessie’s vocals, a gospel choir, and a string section makes this one of the best Christmas songs to come out this year. If you’ve been look for a powerhouse Christmas song to add to your playlist, this is the perfect one for you.
No one can start a party better than Mama RuPaul and this song will definitely get everyone dancing. Plus, it’ll get you in the perfect mood for the upcoming RuPaul’s Drag Race holiday special that will definitely be a must-watch.
Who can ever forget David Archuleta and his incredible first Christmas album? He’s finally back with a second album and he even created two new songs for it, including ‘Christmas Every Day.’ It’s such a fun song that’s great to dance along to and get you in the Christmas spirit.
