– Dan + Shay are out with a new holiday song "Take Me Home For Christmas."

"It was cool to get in the holiday spirit a little early this year because I think we could all use some extra positivity and cheer. Our fans have asked for Christmas music every year, so I hope you all have as much fun listening to it as we did making it."
