Bryson Tiller is back. The Louisville, Kentucky native has returned with his new holiday EP, A Different Christmas.
The seven-song project features appearances from Kiana Ledé, Tayla Parx, Justin Bieber, Poo Bear and Halo (his daughter).
On the opening track “Be Mine This Christmas,” a lonely Tiller sings about not having a significant other during the festive season. “Hard to celebrate when you’re not here with me / I’m writtin’ from a distance / So I guess I’ll be alone this Christmas,” he croons.
Meanwhile, on “Present” featuring Ledé, the two exchange verses about enjoying their partner’s company. “No better feelin’ than when I am alone with you / Told you I’d be right back in time,” he sings.
The highlight is the jazzy “Winter Wonderland,” which features Tiller’s daughter Harley, who goes by Halo. The daddy-daughter duo’s take on the holiday classic will surely put a smile on one’s face.
When Tiller first teased his Christmas project, he explained how the project is dedicated to anyone who is feeling alone during the holidays.
“Before we get into my next album, I wanted to share another special project I worked on for you guys. This one was really fun to make. Inspired by Bieber, Ariana, and by one of my loneliest holiday seasons ever,” Tiller wrote on Instagram. “Happy Holidays from me to you, especially if you’re spending them alone!”

A Different Christmas follows Tiller’s mixtape, Killer Instinct 2: The Nightmare Before, which released in October.
In February, he released a deluxe edition of Anniversary, which contained five additional tracks.
