Mary J. Blige will release her first ever Christmas album, 'A Mary Christmas', later this year.

Due out on October 14, 'A Mary Christmas' will include covers of yuletide favourites including 'Little Drummer Boy' and 'Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer' as well as duets with Barbra Streisand, Jessie J, Marc Anthony and The Clark Sisters.

Barbra Streisand will appear on a soulful version of 'When You Wish Upon a Star' while Jessie J performs alongside Blige on 'Do You Hear What I Hear'. The album has been produced by David Foster, the Grammy-winning knob-twiddler behind earlier Christmas albums by Michael Bublé, Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and Celine Dion.
