Maddie & Tae Announce 'We Need Christmas' Album

Maddie & Tae will get fans in the holiday spirit this year with the release of their first-ever Christmas album, We Need Christmas.

The six-track project, due out on October 23, will feature two Christmas originals called "Merry Married Christmas" and the title track, "We Need Christmas." The duo's Maddie Font [Marlow] and Taylor Kerr [Dye] also recorded four of their favorite holiday classics for the album including "This Christmas," "Holly Jolly Christmas," "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."

"We are so proud of this project and loved recreating some of our favorite Christmas classics as well as write some of our own," the duo said in a statement. "Making We Need Christmas was such a bright spot for us this year and we hope this project brings a little joy and peace to our fans during this difficult year."

On Instagram, Font and Kerr added that they are "so excited to share that we have created our very first Christmas project," revealing that it's "always been a dream of ours." They also shared a video from a photo shoot for the album which also featured a clip of the title track.

Maddie & Tae recently celebrated the Platinum certification of their No. 1 hit, "Die From A Broken Heart." The track, featured on their The Way It Feels album, is the duo's first chart topper since their 2014 debut single, "Girl In A Country Song."

"The song peaking at No. 1 is like the biggest icing on the cake," Kerr recently told People, adding, "but it really is just the icing because the growth that we've had as humans and as best friends and as artists is the success to us."

Font added, "It's more of a win for who we are as humans and our character-building process as women. There is a confidence — when you've gotten through some really tough stuff and come out on the other side stronger — that no one in the world can take away from you."
