“Underneath the Tree” is a song by American recording artist Kelly Clarkson, from her sixth studio album and first Christmas album, Wrapped in Red (2013). Written by Clarkson along with Greg Kurstin, who handled its production, it is a Christmas-themed song that sings of gratitude for companionship during the holidays, in which the beloved is being referred as the only present needed “underneath the tree”. Accompanied by various instrumental sounds, the song prominently incorporates a Wall of Sound treatment along with sleigh bells and bell chimes to resonate a holiday atmosphere. “Underneath the Tree” was first released to Adult Contemporary radio stations on November 5, 2013, by RCA Records as the lead single from the album.
