It’s only September, but it looks like Gwen Stefani is ready for Christmas! Yesterday on Twitter and Instagram, the singer posted a video of herself in front of a Christmas tree, with a caption reading, “Big announcement coming Thursday. #cantwait.”
Stefani looked stunning in a pink gown with her long blonde hair fixed in a ponytail, posing in front of a decorated tree with presents and an old television in the corner. After she turns around and faces the camera, she blows a kiss. The video ends with Stefani’s signature and a red bow appearing on the screen.
Entertainment Tonight reported last month that Gwen Stefani would be releasing a Christmas album this fall, with the help of her boyfriend Blake Shelton, and yesterday’s post seems to confirm that a holiday album is definitely in the works.
According to BMI records, Stefani registered some new song titles for the upcoming album, including one that she co-wrote with Shelton called “You Make It Feel Like Christmas.” Justin Tranter and Busbee are also credited as co-writers. Other titles include ‘Christmas Eve, My Gift Is You,” “When I Was a Little Girl,” and “Under the Christmas Lights.”
It is not clear yet if Stefani and Shelton will sing a duet together, or if Shelton’s contribution was just as a writer. Fans will have to wait for Thursday’s announcement to find out for sure. The couple collaborated once before when they co-wrote the duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” on Shelton’s album If I’m Honest.
When their last duet was released, Shelton told ET that it was a big deal for him to co-write a song, and he doesn’t do it often. He wasn’t sure at the time if he would ever write with Stefani again because of his co-writing insecurities and because Stefani has a “circle of people” who usually work with her.
It has been only a year since Stefani’s third solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, came out, but this will be something new for the singer.
Meanwhile, Shelton recently released the new single “I’ll Name the Dogs,” which Stefani has happily promoted on her social media accounts.
