On the heartwarming tune, Keys lets her man know that being with him feels like Christmas every day of the year. She isn’t pressed for special gifts during the holidays because their bond is more than what she could ask for.
“For this Christmas / Don’t need wishes / Not since I met you / Every season you give reason to love you / From December back to June,” Keys sings in the heartwarming chorus.
“December Back 2 June” is the lead single from Keys’ debut holiday album, Santa Baby, which releases Nov. 4 via Alicia Keys Records.
“I love this music! It feels so good!” says Keys. “I picked each song based on my all-time favorites and I wrote the new ones based on real holiday emotions and stories.”
She adds, “The holidays are such a beautiful time to slow down, be with the ones you love and make meaning! Santa Baby is definitely going to be the perfect holiday soundtrack. I can’t wait for you to fall in love with it.”
Santa Baby will feature 11 tracks, including seven covers and four original songs penned by Keys. Santa Baby will mark Keys’ deluxe album, KEYS II, which released in August. It’s the extended edition of her 2021 double album, KEYS.
KEYS II includes new songs with Brent Faiyaz (“Trillions”) and Lucky Daye (“Stay”), plus remixes of her 2016 track “In Common.”
