If you're anything like us, it doesn't really feel a lot like Christmas until you hear your favorite holiday music on the radio - or you turn on your seasonal Spotify playlist or Pandora station, of course! While the traditional versions of the classic carols are always wonderful, this year we suggest that you check out the latest and greatest holiday albums, which include new offerings from some of our favorite artists along with some amazing up-and-coming groups that you should definitely check out.
Pentatonix - A Pentatonix Christmas
The group that's made a capella vocals more popular than ever has a new Christmas album out (along with a holiday special that's airing on NBC on December 14th). They seem to have mastered the complete holiday formula - this is their third Christmas album, and it debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Charts, and it still tops the holiday charts - but our favorite track might be the chill-inducing version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Just listen!
Fantasia - Christmas After Midnight
As the title suggests, this is a holiday album for grownups, and it features plenty of classic Christmas carols.
Blake Shelton - Cheers, It's Christmas
The 2017 re-issue of People magazine's sexiest man is worth it just to hear his duet with Gwen Stefani.
Gwen Stefani - You Make It Feel Like Christmas
She's amazing in general, so of course her holiday album is an instant classic.
Cheap Trick - Christmas Christmas
This album is a little bit country, a little bit rock'n'roll, and a whole lot of holiday spirit.
It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas!
