Carrie Underwood is giving fans a taste of her first-ever full length Christmas album, My Gift, with the release of her song “Let There Be Peace” on Friday, August 28.
“Let there be peace/ Peace to every nation/ Let there be hope/ For all the world to see/ Let there be love/ And joy to all the children/ Let there be peace on Earth/ For you and me,” Underwood sings during the chorus.
The track was co-written by Underwood alongside Brett James and David Garcia.
“Let There Be Peace” is an instant-grat with a pre-order of the album.
“I’ve always wanted to make a Christmas album and it’s been a long time coming,” Underwood said in a press release. “I knew this would be my next music project after wrapping my tour last year, and I think it’s turned out to be the perfect time for an album like this, in this period of such personal and spiritual reflection. For me, it’s more important than ever to focus on the true meaning of Christmas in a project like this. Even though it has been a tough year for all of us, sometimes I feel like the greatest realizations can be inspired by the most difficult times, and make us more grateful for the things we do have and for what truly matters.”
