September's early enough to start thinking about Christmas, right?

John Legend certainly is. The soul singer has revealed that he will be releasing his first Christmas album later this year, and we can't wait to hear it.

Appearing on ITV's This Morning, John revealed that his currently untitled album will have "a few classics" alongside five new festive songs.

"Yes, I'm so excited," he told Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby. "So we have five new Christmas songs on the album, and quite a few classics. I've been recording it all summer.

"Recording Christmas songs over the summer puts you in a good mood! It's kinda surreal combining 100 degree Los Angeles summer with Christmas songs."

When pressed for any teasers by Phil, John said: "I have a song with holly in it", before bursting into song from a brand new Christmas tune.

Judging from that, we can't wait!
