Darren Criss is going to have a very, very busy holiday season. The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor/singer dropped his debut holiday album on Friday (Oct. 8), A Very Darren Crissmas, which features appearances from Adam Lambert, Evan Rachel Wood and Lainey Wilson.

“You know how every year around the holidays, you say to yourself, wow, I can’t believe they’re here already. That’s how I feel about this album coming out today,” Criss said in an Instagram post announcing the collection. “I can’t believe I actually made one and that it’s out already. It only took all year to get here. I hope it keeps your holidays warm & bright.. if not maybe just a liiitle bit warmer & brighter than the other holiday albums coming out this season.”

The 12-song collection features such classics as “Have Yourself a Very Merry Little Christmas” and “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire),” as well as “I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas,” “St. Patrick’s Day,” “Welcome Home” and “Somewhere in My Memory.”

And that’s not all. The singer will also kick off the “A Very Darren Crissmas Tour” on Dec. 3 in Indianapolis at the Murat Theatre, which will keep him on the road through a Dec. 22 gig at the Hershey Theatre in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
