LOS ANGELES -- Just call CeeLo Green music's newest Santa Claus.

The 38-year-old singer-rapper is working on a Christmas album that he promises is "the real deal."

Green said in a recent interview that the album, "CeeLo's Magic Moment," is a "soulful take on a host of Christmas classics."

Among the tunes to be included on the Elektra Records album are "Silent Night," "The Christmas Song," "This Christmas," "You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch" and "White Christmas."

Rod Stewart, B.o.B. and Straight No Chaser are among the featured artists.

Green's Christmas album will be released Oct. 30. The "Forget You!" singer is back this week as a coach on NBC's "The Voice," which begins its new season.
