Grammy-nominated soul singer Andra Day has released "Merry Christmas From Andra Day," a five-track Christmas collection, via all digital service providers. A physical version will be available from Warner Bros. Records on Nov. 18.
The set includes the Christmas classics "Someday At Christmas" (with Stevie Wonder), "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Winter Wonderland," "Carol of the Bells," and "The First Noel."
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" was recorded with country singer Jennifer Nettles as a duet for Nettles' upcoming holiday album. Day will perform it with Nettles on the "CMA Country Christmas Special" at the Grand Ole Opry, which airs on Nov. 28. Day will also perform "Someday at Christmas" on the show.

Hailing from San Diego, Day was nominated for two Grammys for Best R&B Album for her biographical debut, "Cheers To The Fall," and Best R&B Performance for her anthem "Rise Up."
