The pop star’s eagle-eyed fans noticed she has registered a string of Xmas songs on music publishing website BMI. A few of the tracks are classics she recorded more than a year ago, but a handful are brand new – or at least are just now getting registered.
Last month, Gwen said she had plans to release new music this year, but wouldn’t reveal what exactly she was referring to. “I’ve been working on new music, which I’m so excited to release this year,” she told Weekender. “I can’t say too much about it just yet, but I’ve had so much fun in the studio.”
It’s worth mentioning she’s collaborating with one of pop music’s not-so-secret weapons, Semi Precious Weapons frontman Justin Tranter. He’s crafted songs for Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and many, many more. He also played a significant role in Gwen’s 2016 LP This Is What the Truth Feels Like. She’s also enlisting songwriter/producer Busbee, who’s written for Christina Aguilera, the Backstreet Boys, Jason Aldean, Daughtry, Gavin DeGraw, Adam Lambert, Shakira, P!nk and Keith Urban.
A couple of the song titles include “Christmas Eve,” “My Gift Is You,” “Under The Christmas Lights” and “When I Was A Little Girl.” A track named “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” features her new boo, country singer Blake Shelton.
