That’s not the only symmetry on the release though. “Finally It’s Christmas” features Hanson on a song they recorded in 2017, and Hanson also recorded “Little Saint Nick” in 1997.

We also promised a connection to all of this involving actor Bill Murray. Check it out in the video above.

As for Reason for the Season, Love says he wanted to touch on something beyond Santa, presents and Christmas trees.

“The reason for the season, fundamentally, is more philosophical, "Love told RADIO.COM in our exclusive interview. "It has to do with love."
