Kelly explains she chose the album’s title “to bring forth a sense of reality to the fact that we are probably all in very different places emotionally ‘when Christmas comes around.'”

She continues, “Some of us consumed with a new love, some of us reminded of loss, some filled with optimism for the coming new year, others elated for some much deserved time away from the chaos our work lives can sometimes bring us.”

“Wherever you are, and whatever you may be experiencing, I wanted everyone to be able to connect to a message on this album, ” Kelly adds. “Each year you may even have a new favorite depending on where you are in your life, but while change can be unpredictable there is no better time of year, in my opinion, to breathe hope into one’s life and let possibility wander.”

When Christmas Comes Around…. is Kelly’s first album since 2017’s Meaning of Life and her first holiday collection since 2013’s Wrapped in Red.
