She’s known for songs like “You And I,” “Girls Chase Boys,” and “The Way I Am.” Michaelson is also the award-winning singer/songwriter behind the holiday album titled Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs For The Season.

This year, Michaelson is ringing in the holiday season with her album Songs For The Season – Deluxe Edition. The collection features already released favorites, including Michaelson’s remake of “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” 

Additionally, there are some new Christmas surprises for listeners of this upcoming release. Michaelson premiered “Winter Wonderland,” featuring Allie Moss and Hannah Winkler ahead of the album’s debut. Within a matter of weeks, this cover earned thousands of Spotify streams.

According to a statement, “originally released in October 2018, the project’s new deluxe edition of her festive Songs For The Season project will debut five new tracks – including an original duet with Zooey Deschanel titled ‘Merry Christmas, Happy New Year.’”

Aside from her appearance in the holiday film Elf, Deschanel appeared in several well-known Christmas albums. In 2019, that meant “Mele Kalikimaka” off of The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show official soundtrack.

Some artists featured on the original 2018 holiday album include Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. on “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Christina Perri, known for the original song “Jar of Hearts,” is featured on Michaelson’s rendition of “White Christmas.” 

Grace VanderWaal of Star Girl and America’s Got Talent sings “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” Some new tracks added to the 2021 release include “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year,” “Christmas Valentine (Feat. Jason Mraz),” “A Marshmallow World,” and “Winter Wonderland.”
