And while Michael Buble is probably drafting up another festive album, the unlikely competitor Sir David Attenborough has just thrown in a curve-ball with his debut release.
But before you start thinking the national treasure is going to be chanting Christmas carols at you, as epic as that would be, he is in fact releasing an album full of musicians he captured on tape while travelling the globe.
Between the years 1954 and 1963, the star carried around a portable tape recorder with him on his adventures for Zoo Quest, and ended up recording a number of traditional musicians.
From an Indonesian puppet drama to villagers in Sierra Leone, the 92-year-old has captured some of the most organic sounds from around the world and will be releasing over 50 of his field recordings on a double CD.
Talking about his creation, David said: While I was theoretically looking for pythons, in the evenings I would record different types of music. Back in 1960s there were still parts of the world where European music hadnt been heard.
Where the traditions which had been developed by human beings over centuries were still continued with no knowledge of the Western style of music, which since then has enveloped the world.
So these sounds, which I captured with a clumsy tape recorder, do have a quality which you wouldnt be able to replicate today, iNews reported.
David Attenboroughs My Field Recordings From Across The Planet will be available from 23 November – and were rooting for it to get Christmas number one.
The broadcaster has had a busy year, with him not only putting out an album, but also delivering his new series Dynasties.
Throughout the course of the programme, the nature guru takes follows penguins, chimpanzees, lions, painted wolves and tigers, and shows them battling against some of the worlds toughest elements.
So tough in fact, that some of the crew had to break Davids rule of not interfering in order to help save some penguin chicks.

Executive producer Michael Gunton, spilled on the rule-break when talking at the shows press launch.
The Sun reported him saying: We have a rule that interfering is a very dangerous thing to do. But these penguins were going to die through a freak act of nature if nothing happened.
How would this conversation be going if you said you saw them there and did nothing? I think you have to do it.
