Merry Christmas, Claymates! Clay Aiken is bringing love back just in time for the holidays. The American Idol Season 2 finalist has just released a new song on iTunes and Amazon. Finally, there’s a cure for the lack of Clay in our lives.

But that’s not all! Clay also released a special holiday message for fans. Click here to see the singer looking particularly dapper in a cardigan and tie. One last reason to be thankful for the coming new year: Clay will star on Season 12 of Celebrity Apprentice starting February 12, 2012.
