Being born on December 22 has always meant that Meghan Trainor‘s Christmases are a double celebration, which is why she’s so excited to be releasing her first-ever holiday album. Now, we know the full details of the release, including the unique list of guest stars.

A Very Trainor Christmas, due out October 30, features contributions from legendary R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire, Family Guy creator and crooner Seth MacFarlane, and Meghan’s dad, cousins and other family members.

“I’m a Christmas baby, it’s always been a dream of mine to release a Christmas album and to do it with my family makes it that much better,” says Meghan in a statement.

“Songs featuring my family are like permanent memories that I get to replay all the time. Earth, Wind & Fire and Seth MacFarlane are two of my family’s all-time-favorites -– we worship the ground they walk on –- so to get them to feature on this album still doesn’t feel real. Best Christmas present ever!”

The album also comes in a Target Deluxe Edition with two bonus tracks and a different cover.

A Very Trainor Christmas features six original tunes, including the already released “My Kind of Present,” the Earth, Wind & Fire collab “Holidays,” “Christmas Got Me Blue,” and “Christmas Party,” recorded with her whole family.

Among the classics Meghan’s recorded are a duet with MacFarlane on “White Christmas,” a rendition of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” featuring her cousins Jayden, Jenna and Marcus, and a touching rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” sung with Meghan’s dad, Gary.

On October 30, Meghan, who’s expecting her first child, will launch her own talkshoplive® channel to host an interactive selling experience for fans.
