A merry, Morton Christmas.

PJ Morton just released the video for his soulful cover of Mariah Carey‘s 1994 holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

The video captures home video of the musician’s childhood holiday memories, and pieces together performance shots of Morton and Mint Condition‘s Stokley in the studio during the making of the magic.

The song appears as the first single off Morton’s upcoming album, Christmas With PJ Morton, which is set to release on Nov. 9.

“I had a stop in Minneapolis on the Maroon 5 Red Pill Blues Tour and phoned Stokley to see if we could put a cool visual together to go with the amazing version of this modern Christmas classic,” Morton told Okayplayer. “We just went to the studio in our natural habitat to get some footage. The other footage is from the many Christmases that my father videotaped through the years.”

Morton is gearing up for his North American More Gumbo Tour from Nov. 11 through Dec. 7.
