Another look at Dolly Parton’s new holiday album is here!

Christmas is still months away, but that didn’t stop the Queen of Country from releasing her brand-new rendition of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” on YouTube (below) this week. Not that we’re complaining!

Parton’s fun take on the Christmas standard is included on her upcoming holiday album, A Holly Dolly Christmas, which drops on October 2.

“I have always loved ‘I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus’ because it’s a song I heard growing up,” Parton told Cumulus Music. “I wanted to do something for the kids, and I think it’s a real cute little song. I have a child-like spirit and I love everything about Christmas!”

“I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” is the second track Parton has teased ahead of the album’s debut. The Tennessee songstress also dropped her version of “Mary, Did You Know?” in August. According to Billboard, the first official single from the album will be “Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas” with Michael Bublé.
