New Music Releases -- Holiday & Christmas 2012

Warner Bros.

Even though October has just begun, the 2012 holiday season will soon be upon us. As always, many different artists of all genres are releasing their own Christmas albums. One of the most anticipated holiday albums this year comes from Blake Shelton . It's his seventh studio album, but his first Christmas album, and it was released on October 2nd. The album will feature guest appearances by his wife Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Michael Bublé, Kelly Clarkson, and more! Lady Antebellum will release their second Christmas album, 'On This Winter's Night,' on October 22, which features their original title track of the album.

Another anticipated album is Cee-Lo Green's Christmas album, due at the end of October titled 'Cee-Lo's Magic Moment.' The album features collaborations with many including Christina Aguilera and Rod Stewart. Stewart will debut his first ever Christmas album as well, titled 'Merry Christmas, Baby.'

For those who want to feel a little nostalgic, Elvis Presley's 'Classic Christmas Album' will be available on October 2nd. The compilation features 17 tracks, including the famous 'Blue Christmas.' Barry Manilow will release his own 'Classic Christmas Album' on the same day.

And perhaps no one puts out better holiday music than Trans-Siberian Orchestra, who will release a brand new 5 song EP titled 'Dreams Of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)' on August 28.
