Nick Jonas and Shania Twain have joined forces for “Say All You Want For Christmas,” a new holiday song that’s all about giving and receiving.
The mid-paced track is slow and sensuous, starting with a spare piano line and gradually building with strings and vocals: “Spread all of your emotions on the table/ And let me see your heart upon your sleeve/ …I wanna know exactly what you need/ Say all you want for Christmas is me.”
Jonas and Twain’s voices harmonize beautifully throughout the love song, especially on the chorus: “I’m gonna love you like/ like it’s always Christmas Eve/ And I’m gonna sacrifice the selfish part of me/ And when we’re all alone and I hold you close/ Everything I need/ Say all you want for Christmas is me.”
Though it’s their first official collaboration, it’s not the first time Jonas and Twain have performed together. Twain brought Jonas out for a duet of her song “Party For Two,” at her comeback performance at this spring’s Stagecoach festival.
