It’s officially December and Kacey Musgraves knows it well — that’s why she’s released a new Christmas album that even the Mariah Carey would be proud of.

As part of her Amazon Prime Christmas special, which premiered on the platform on November 29, Kacey has put out an accompanying soundtrack album, also titled The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show.

A follow-up to her 2016 A Very Kacey Christmas, The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show is Kacey’s second holiday album and, much like the first, it features new original songs Kacey penned for the show as well as versions of beloved holiday classics.

All in all, the Christmas-themed album truly is a winter wonderland — especially when it comes to the collaborations. For the 18-track album, the six-time Grammy winner racked up some impressive feats. In seven of the songs, Kacey joins forces with the likes of Camila Cabello, Lana Del Rey, and James Corden (among many others) to create the boppiest versions of iconic tracks such as “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and “Let It Snow.” She also enlists the help of Troye Sivan for the pair’s recently unveiled duet, “Glittery.” And because Kacey sure knows how to get us in the holiday spirit, all the collabs are also featured as live performances on the special.

Apart from Christmas music galore, the show features comic sketches and even guest appearances by the likes of The Radio City Rockettes and Kendall Jenner — all with the same campy disco vibes and cotton candy aura the singer has us accustomed to, with an extra touch of glitter. If you’re a Kacey Musgraves stan, Christmas definitely came early this year!
