Carrie Underwood to Re-Release ‘My Gift’ With Three New Tracks
Carrie Underwood has added three new songs to her 2020 Christmas album My Gift, and she plans to re-release it in the fall. My Gift (Special Edition) includes one completely new recording, and two that savvy fans may have heard previously.
My Gift (Special Edition) will be released on CD and digitally on Sept. 24, almost one year after it initially dropped and became a chart-topping success for Underwood. It was her first Christmas album and focused on traditional and religious tracks like "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Mary, Did You Know?"
"Let There Be Peace," "Sweet Baby Jesus" and "Hallelujah" with John Legend were the three new songs on the original project. Her son, Isaiah Fisher, joined her for "Little Drummer Boy."
An Underwood co-write called "Favorite Time of Year" is one of the three additions to the special edition album. The song was an Amazon Original last fall and part of her HBO Max Christmas special. A mashup of "Let There Be Peace" and "Something in the Water" from that same special will close the new release.
Additionally, a Michael W. Smith and Wayne Kilpatrick co-write called "All Is Well" will be featured on the album. This is the only truly new recording of the 14. Smith originally cut the song in 1989, but he and Underwood came together to re-cut it for his 2014 album, The Spirit of Christmas.
My Gift led to an album of gospel songs called My Savior, released early in 2021. Underwood's last studio album of country songs was Cry Pretty, released in 2018. Last week, she revealed she was Jason Aldean's duet partner on a new song from his next album called "If I Didn't Love You."
A vinyl version of My Gift (Special Edition) will be available on Nov. 5.
