The soundtrack for Happiest Season, Clea DuVall’s highly anticipated holiday-themed queer rom-com, is making the yuletide gay—literally!
The tracklist for the movie’s eponymous soundtrack was announced this Friday, October 30, and the lineup is nothing short of unapologetically queer. LGBTQ artists like Tegan and Sara, Sia, and Shea Diamond all make appearances on the album, with Grammy-nominated songwriter and record producer Justin Tranter serving as executive producer.
The full tracklist is as follows:
1. Anne-Marie – “Think of Christmas”
2. Bebe Rexha & Shea Diamond – “Blame It on Christmas”
3. BAYLI– “Jingle Bells”
4. Shea Diamond – “Mrs. Claus”
5. Jake Wesley Rogers – “O Holy Night”
6. Sia – “Candy Cane Lane”
7. Brandy Clark – “Only Time of Year”
8. kennedi – “Christmas Morning”
9. Carlie Hanson – “Chosen Family”
10. Tegan and Sara – “Make You Mine This Season”
11. LP – “Silent Night”
In a statement, Tranter emphasized the importance of holiday-themed music for “all types of families,” including LGBTQ people.
“To be given the honor to help create a holiday soundtrack that everyone can enjoy but celebrates LGBTQ talent is an actual dream come true for me!” he added. “There are LGBTQ artists and/or songwriters on every original song. The soundtrack’s focus is on LBTQ women to pay tribute to the brilliant queer woman who co-wrote and directed the movie. I hope we did you proud, Clea!”
