For Kelly Clarkson, Christmas will arrive just in time for Halloween with the debut of her first-ever holiday album.

The American Idol season-one winner announced that her new release, titled Wrapped in Red, will drop on Oct. 29.

"Check out the cover of my Christmas album! I can't wait for y'all to hear it," tweeted Clarkson. "I have been dying to make this album since I was a kid!"

The album, produced by Greg Kurstin, will feature original songs ("Underneath the Tree" and the title track), as well as collaborations with Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood on classics including "Silent Night." Country singer Ronnie Dunn already revealed on Facebook that he would be involved with the project, as well.

Other songs targeted for Wrapped in Red include "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Blue Christmas," "Run Run Rudolph" and "Please Come Home for Christmas."

This isn't the first time the 31-year-old Grammy Award winner has covered holiday music. Her versions of "My Grown Up Christmas List" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas" are already staples around holiday time, and she lent her voice to Blake Shelton's Cheers, It's Christmas in 2012.
