*It’s not even Halloween yet, and Mariah Carey wants you thinking about Christmas music – specifically, her Nov. 2 release “Merry Christmas II You.”
As previously reported, the follow up to her 1994 holiday album includes four original songs written by Carey, including “Oh Santa!”, the album’s first single. [Listen below.]
Jingling bells and a plea to Santa open the upbeat, festive track that has Carey wishing that St. Nick will “bring me back my baby” for Christmas.
“Merry Christmas II You” also features a new recording of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and some traditional holiday tunes, including “The First Noel,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.”
