Releasing holiday albums, especially this far ahead of the “official kick off” of the holiday season, comes as quite the double edged sword. While on one end, music lovers are given enough time to familiarize themselves with your take on Christmas classics by the time the Christmas season hits, the glaring, most end is the limitation of where you’ll promote the record during its release week (as TV viewers aren’t exactly ready to hear ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Rocking Around the Christmas Tree’ before Halloween).
Alas, this is the challenge soulstress Fantasia and ska potentate Gwen Stefani are ready to face with their respective festive offerings…
Stefani is teaming with Target for her set – ‘This Is What Christmas Feels Like.’ Taking to the retail giant for the album’s deluxe edition, the ‘Rich Girl’ singer is offering an exclusive hard-back book filled with 24 pages of photos of her recording the project, pics from her private collection (family Christmas celebrations through the years), and so much more.

Fannie, whose new project – ‘Christmas After Midnight’ – is already seeing its promo plan drummed up with the announcement of the forthcoming ‘Christmas After Midnight’ tour (click here to read more about that). Stream it below:
Now that you’ve heard both, who’ll be getting your coins?
