C'mon Gleeks, you didn't think the kids of New Directions were gonna leave you hanging for the holidays, did you? Sure enough, the masterminds behind "Glee" are prepping a Christmas album to coincide with the show's December 7 holiday episode. Glee: The Music — The Christmas Album will hit stores on November 16, complete with "Glee"-ified takes on such staples as "O Holy Night," "Jingle Bells" and "Last Christmas."
According to a press release announcing the disc, in addition to the kids singing yuletide classics, the track list will also boast a guest appearance by Grammy winner k.d. lang, who will add her vocals to a cover of the Dr. Seuss-inspired ditty "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch."
While Columbia Records did not release the specific breakdown of which "Glee" stars will perform the tunes, EW.com reported the track listing for the 12-song album. According to the website, it is:
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, 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, Heather Morris)
6. "Last Christmas" (Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Kevin McHale, Mark Salling, Jenna Ushkowitz, Chris Colfer)
7. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" (Lea Michele, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Jenna Ushkowitz)
8. "O Christmas Tree" (Matthew Morrison)
9. "Jingle Bells" (Cory Monteith, Mark Salling, Kevin McHale)
10. "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" (k.d. lang and Matthew Morrison)
11. "Angels We Have Heard on High" (Amber Riley)
12. "O Holy Night" (Lea Michele)
The full Christmas album is a huge upgrade from last year's offering, which included just one puny holiday single, a charity-benefit cover of Wham!'s "Last Christmas," which was available for download but was never used on the show.
