A running gag in the recent animated Marvel movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is the Spider-Man themed Christmas album that Peter Parker mentions as part of his personal Spider-Man bio.

One song from the album, “Spidey-Bells,” does play during the movie’s credits—a treat for fans who patiently await the post-credits scene.

But now, Sony released a very real, digital EP of A Very Spidey Christmas. And it is amazing.

The album features five holiday tracks with reimagined, Spider-Man-themed lyrics. Three of the film’s Spider-Men appear on the album: Shameik Moore, the voice of Miles Morales, sings “Joy to the World;” Chris Pine, the voice of Peter Parker, sings “Spidey-Bells” and “Up on the House Top;” and Jake Johnson, the voice of Peter B. Parker, sings “Deck the Halls.” The fifth track is a spoken word retelling of “The Night Before Christmas 1967,” by Jorma Toccone.

Each track is full of fun Spider-Verse references and lyrics. For example, “Joy to the World” starts out with, “Joy to the world that I just saved,” and swaps “Let every heart prepare him room” with, “I saved you all again, this time from the Kingpin.”

Some of the tracks, most notably “Spidey-Bells” and “Deck the Halls” also feature spoken sections in which the singers discuss the song while staying in character. (Peter B. Parker even includes an unwelcome shout out to his estranged wife, Mary Jane).

The digital EP is available now to stream on Spotify and Apple Music, and it is available for purchase on Amazon.

Get ready to listen on repeat through the new year (and, let’s be honest, after).
