A lot of people like to get a jump on Christmas, but Faith Hill is going them one better.

The singer and her label, Warner Bros. Records Nashville, are already promoting Hill’s upcoming holiday CD, “Joy to the World,” set for release Sept. 16.

Hill said recently the project is two years in the making and features The Nashville Orchestra as well as the London-based choirs Metro Voices and The London Oratory School Boys Choir.

“I had a very clear vision for the type of Christmas album that I wanted to make, indicative of the big band orchestras of the ’40s and ’50s with a full compliment of horns, strings, woodwinds, percussion and chorales,” the Star, Miss., native said in a statement.

Besides Christmas classics like “What Child is This” and “Winter Wonderland,” the 11 tracks include an original single, “A Baby Changes Everything,” written by Nashville songwriters Tim Nichols, Craig Wiseman and K.K. Wiseman.

Hill, whose hits include “Breathe,” “This Kiss” and “Mississippi Girl,” co-produced the disc with Dan Huff and Byron Gallimore.
