Carrie Underwood has just given fans another early Christmas present.

After dropping her first Christmas album, “My Gift,” in September, the country superstar has now released a wintry music video of her big collaboration with John Legend, “Good Morning America” reported.

Not to be confused with the Leonard Cohen classic, “Hallelujah” is a new song co-written by Legend. He suggested the song to Underwood when she was deep into the album-making process, Wide Open Country reported.

“He sent it to us kind of at the end,” Underwood said, according to Wide Open Country. “It was like, ‘Well, I love the song. I feel like this is a puzzle piece I didn’t know was missing, but now that I’ve heard it, I have to have it. And so we just put the ask back, ‘Thank you for sending, do you want to sing a part with me, too?’”

The musicians recorded the song separately because of the pandemic, according to the the Deseret News. The music video made its worldwide debut on Thursday (you can watch the video here).

The official music video will hit YouTube Friday night at 10 p.m. MT.

Underwood’s Christmas album also includes a duet of “Little Drummer Boy” with her 5-year-old son Isaiah, according to the Deseret News.

The former “American Idol” winner will continue spreading Christmas cheer on Nov. 25, when she performs with Josh Groban for the iHeart Radio Holiday special.
