If you're one of those types who start unpacking the Christmas decorations before Halloween even hits -- don't be shy about it! -- there's no better way to enhance the seasonal mood than listening to some great holiday music. And, one of the best groups around for this purpose is 10-member all-male a cappella group Straight No Chaser, who are known for their beautiful (and hip) Christmas collections, and now have a new EP coming out October 29 featuring a whole stocking's worth of A-list special musical guests.

Intrigued? Well, Santa's come early. Yahoo Music is excited to offer the first listen of the group's take with the legendary, late Otis Redding, "Merry Christmas Baby."

Straight No Chaser's new Under The Influence: Holiday Version also features collaborations with Cee Lo Green, Colbie Caillat, and Sir Paul McCartney! You can pre-order the set at the group's official site. Season's greetings!
