Sabrina Claudio has shared her first-ever holiday album, Christmas Blues.
The eight-song LP features a mix of classic Christmas songs and originals such as “I Just Melt” and “Warm December.” The record also features The Weeknd on the title track “Christmas Blues” and Alicia Keys on “Winter Time.”
“I created this Christmas album in the beginning of this summer with the intention of bringing a sense of peace, nostalgia, and/or happiness even if the feeling only lasted for the length of a song,” the singer wrote on Instagram. “We really had no idea where we’d end up… we were just creating because it felt good.”
In the post, Claudio also thanked The Weeknd and Alicia Keys for joining her on the project, calling them the “two of the most influential figures in [her] life and journey as an artist.” She also described the album as a way to “shine a tiny light through an incredibly dark year.”
Christmas Blues follows Claudio’s sophomore album, Truth is, which was released last year. Earlier this year, the singer teamed up with Black Coffee on “SBCNCSLY.”
