GLEE To Release Christmas Album in November

Here’s one gift I hope to find in my stocking this holiday—a Glee Christmas album! Releasing on November 16, the album features the Glee cast covering 12 classic holiday songs like “Jingle Bells” and “O Holy Night.” Glee: The Music – The Christmas Album will coincide with Glee‘s December 7th holiday-themed episode.

Michael Ausiello has the complete track list, which includes a guest appearance by k.d. lang on “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” Check out the full list (Warning—it does contain small SPOILER):

1. We Need A Little Christmas (Jenna Ushkowitz, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer)
2. Deck The Rooftop (Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Naya Rivera, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, and Jenna Ushkowitz)
3. Merry Christmas Darling (Lea Michele)
4. Baby, It’s Cold Outside (Chris Colfer and Darren Criss)
5. The Most Wonderful Day Of The Year (Chord Overstreet, Mark Salling, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Heather Morris)
6. Last Christmas (Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Kevin McHale, Mark Salling, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Chris Colfer)
7. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (Lea Michele, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, and Jenna Ushkowitz)
8. O Christmas Tree (Matthew Morrison)
9. Jingle Bells (Cory Monteith, Mark Salling, and Kevin McHale)
10. You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch (k.d. lang and Morrison)
11. Angels We Have Heard On High (Amber Riley)
12. O Holy Night (Lea Michele)

So Chris Colfer and Darren Criss are singing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside?” Very interesting. There has been a great deal of speculation that Darren Criss would be playing Kurt’s love interest, and perhaps this confirms it.

Gleeks, are you excited about Glee: The Music – The Christmas Album? What do you think of the selection of songs?
