Hear Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Underneath the Tree’
After giving her fans an early listen to ‘White Christmas,’ Kelly Clarkson has shared another holiday track for everyone’s ears in the form of ‘Underneath the Tree.’
It’s the first single from her upcoming Christmas album ‘Wrapped in Red,’ and has everything a Christmas song could want: a jazzy, big band sound, saxophone and bells ringing, all bottled up in an optimistic and catchy holiday track. Clarkson shines in this song, as her strong vocals are needed to offset the snazzy production and chorus.
Listeners can’t help but smile, because ‘Underneath the Tree’ evokes a certain sound that so many holiday songs have — and this one is no exception. We can already feel the chill in the air and see the Christmas lights while driving down the street, listening to Clarkson’s voice as she belts, “You’re here, where you should be / Snow is falling as the carolers sing.”
Clarkson is the ultimate caroler on this track, and we can’t wait to hear more songs from her Christmas album. It drops Oct. 29.
Hopefully, all country music fans will see this record ‘underneath the tree’ this December.
