[lastfm]Mariah Carey[/lastfm] is returning to Christmas.
Years after her first Christmas album, Carey will be releasing a new holiday CD just in time for the merry season.
“Merry Christmas II You,” is set to release Nov. 2nd.
The album will feature four original songs penned by Carey, including lead single “Oh Santa.”
What to expect? Traditional holiday tunes such as “Little Drummer Boy” and “O Come All Ye Faithful”, alongside a re-recording of Carey’s Christmas standard, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” – which has sold 1.6 million downloads to date, making it Carey’s best-selling download.
Mariah’s second Christmas album will likely face competition from [lastfm]Susan Boyle[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Jessica Simpson[/lastfm], who are both reportedly releasing holiday albums this season.
