Do Mariah Carey's upper respiratory infection and cancelled Christmas tour dates have you singing the blues?
Gwen Stefani is here to spread the musical holiday cheer this season with her new album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas. The No Doubt alum and founder of fashion line L.A.M.B. will also be premiering an accompanying Christmas special to air on NBC in December.

In addition to her take on holiday standards like "White Christmas," "Silent Night," and "Jingle Bells," Gwen Stefani is debuting six original songs on this new album, including a duet on the title track with her boyfriend (and People's newest Sexiest Man Alive) Blake Shelton. Stefani told Entertainment Tonight that a holiday album is something she's wanted to do for a long time: "It was a really super fun project...kind of a bucket list thing, and it just happened...Everything on this record was effortless and fun, but doing some of the covers were hard. I'm like, 'Oh my God, I'm in a ska band my whole life. [Why] am I doing 'Silent Night'? It's hard, but it was fun, and I got to do it in my way, so [it was a] fun project."
Though Stefani finished up her stint on NBC's The Voice this past spring, her Christmasing work will see the Grammy winning-songstress very busy over the coming weeks. In addition to her NBC special, she'll also be performing on NBC's "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" on November 29.
It's unclear whether Gwen Stefani will be returning to The Voice in the future, but fans can pick up You Make It Feel Like Christmas in stores now.
