Mary J. Blige is branching into seasonal albums.
The Grammy award-winning singer will release her first-ever holiday album in October of 2013. The album, which is titled A Mary Christmas, features Blige’s soulful interpretation of classic holiday tunes.
A Mary Christmas will serve as Blige’s 11 studio album since her 1992 debut What’s the 411?
This Christmas album will also be the first collaboration between legendary producer and hit-maker David Foster and Blige for Matriarch Records/Verve Records/Interscope Records.
No word on the track list or if Blige will partner-up with other artists for any of the songs.
