*UPDATED* Mariah Carey "Merry Christmas II You" Cover + More

Behold, the cover of Mariah Carey's forthcoming Christmas album Merry Christmas II You (November 2nd), the sequel to her 1994 classic Merry Christmas. Cheap-looking plastic snowman aside, I love it! Along with the cover, new details about the project have emerged. Although the number of new tracks set to appear has decreased from six to four (all of which were written by Mariah), it has been revealed that Mariah has actually re-recorded her smash holiday hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You" for the album! Also, the first single lifted from the set will be an original song called "Oh Santa". Some of the traditional songs that are set for inclusion are "The First Noel", "Little Drummer Boy", "O Little Town Of Bethlehem", & "O Come All Ye Faithful", none of which were featured on Mariah's first Christmas album. Producers who contributed to Merry Christmas II You include Jermaine Dupri & Randy Jackson (I wonder if she was ever even recording a regular new album..?). Woot! Who's excited?!

UPDATE: Mariah recorded a message to her fans (that never pans above her bust...hmm) about her new Christmas album! Take a look:
