Another day, another announcement from Martha Stewart. The subject of the latest? Yuletide songs.

No, the domestic diva is not about to warble her version of "White Christmas," but her company has compiled a three-disc holiday collection to be released by Epic Records on Oct. 18, titled Martha Stewart Living Music: The Holiday Collection.

The $40 deluxe box set (individual CDs can be purchased for $17) will include 30 recipe cards, along with helpful decoration tips and creative craft ideas, according to a press release.

"Great music is an important part of living, especially during the holidays. Family activities such as gift wrapping, baking, cooking, and entertaining are enlivened with beautiful songs, traditional carols, fantastic vocalists, and famous musical renditions," Stewart, 64, said in a statement.

Among the selections on the 18-song"traditional" disc: "Silent Night" by Mariah Carey, "Winter Wonderland" by Aretha Franklin, "This Is Christmas" by Luther Vandross and "Silver Bells" by Martina McBride.
