Ingrid Michaelson thinks we need a little Christmas right this very minute -- so she's just offered up a teaser track for the deluxe edition of her holiday album, Ingrid Michaelson's Songs for the Season.
"Merry Christmas, Happy New Year," which features duet partner Zooey Deschanel, is accompanied by a cute stop-motion video that takes cues from the original TV version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Ingrid says, "I don’t think you’ll meet someone who loves Christmas more than I do, and it is the same thing for Christmas music. I’m incredibly honored that another self-proclaimed Christmas lover, Zooey Deschanel, is joining me on a new original, 'Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!' When she said yes (over Twitter) it was truly an early Christmas gift!"
The deluxe version of Ingrid Michaelson's Songs for the Season will drop on November 5th.
