John Legend very well just may have created a new holiday classic record with his new collaboration with Stella Artois as part of the brand’s “Give Beautifully” campaign.

The track “Under the Stars” was recently derived from the genius mind of the Academy and Grammy Award-winning artist and the song’s title is layered well beneath the surface. Seeing that actual stars of the twinkle, twinkle variation have frequencies by which their brightness changes can be translated into unique audible tones, the folks over at Stella Artois actually made it possible for Legend to record his new song with the astral wonders. astrophysicist Zoltán Kolláth was brought on board to translate and analyze these unique star sounds and the rest is holiday music history that brings the warm and fuzzy feeling of a fireplace shared with loved ones. The duet also subtly pays homage to the brand’s name, “Stella,” which directly translates to “star” in Latin.

“I’ve always been fascinated by space exploration, so being able to pair that interest with my passion for music makes this collaboration with Stella Artois such a special one,” says Legend told the word via press release. “The sound of stars is ethereal and has this dreamy vibe, which inspired ‘Under the Stars,’ a song about spreading love and togetherness during the holiday season. I couldn’t think of a better way to gift my fans this year!”
