Start decorating your Christmas tree! The holidays are coming early this year for Beliebers everywhere. On Wednesday, Justin Bieber tweeted updates about his music video for the lead single off his holiday-themed album , which drops in November.
Bieber and his team kept fans up-to-date about what was going down on set. “Video shoot today for Christmas album. #mistletoe,” he wrote, before confirming the name of the track and a release date for the album. “On the set of #mistletoe. Christmas is coming early this year. #nov1st.”
The shoot wasn’t kept under wraps, and Bieber didn’t mind the crowds that gathered to watch him celebrate the holidays a few months early. He also tweeted a photo of himself with Santa Claus and wrote, “doing the #dougie with santa. #real. haha. #mistletoe.”
It seems everyone involved with the shoot is pretty stoked about it. “Getting incredible reports from the @justinbieber #mistletoe video … seems like this is going to be a big song and a big video. #superstar,” Scooter Braun tweeted, with videographer Alfredo Flores adding, “4am and we’re still out here putting in work! This video is going to be magical! @justinbieber is killin it! #mistletoe.”
The video was directed by Roman White, who previously worked with Bieber on his “One Less Lonely Girl” clip, as well as videos for Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton.
While the album title hasn’t been confirmed, online retailers like Amazon are already pre-selling the album with the tentative title Under the Mistletoe and a November 1 release date.
In addition to confirmed duets with the Band Perry and Boyz II Men , as well as rumored collabos with Taylor Swift and Sean Kingston, Bieber confirmed that his mentor Usher will also appear on the album.
“Just finished a late nt in the studio for the Christmas album … it is OFFICIAL … my big bro @UsherRaymondIV is on the album with me! #EPIC,” he tweeted. “This duet with me and @USHERRAYMONDIV for #christmas is CRAZY!!!”
