Christmas music is like adultery or multi-level marketing: people keep trying when they shouldn’t, and there’s little guarantee they’ll get away with it. But the pop music machine keeps going, and it’s that time of year, and so we have a fresh crop of attempts at timelessness that, for the most part, won’t pan out. This year brings new tracks from the likes of the Backstreet Boys, Sia, Alicia Keys, Camila Cabello and Lindsay Lohan singing “Jingle Bell Rock” – again!
Notably, there is also a large swath of New Christmas Music by big artists like Lizzo and Kane Brown, which is released exclusively via Amazon Music and therefore cannot be embedded in its entirety, was not reviewed here. Exclusive platform? This is not in the spirit of giving! However, it’s in the spirit of capitalism, which means it’s perfectly Christmassy.
In this slideshow, we profile 10 new Christmas carols for ’22 and their (entirely subjective) odds of keeping them for years to come.
