New York – It’s beginning to look a lot like Jessica Simpson for Christmas.

Columbia Records will release “ReJoyce: The Christmas Album” and the “Jessica Simpson Reality Tour Live” DVD on Nov. 23.

Tracks on the album, named in honor of her grandmother, Joyce Adams Simpson, include “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)”; “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” a duet with her husband, Nick Lachey.

The DVD, which showcases the July 30 stop in Los Angeles on her summer tour, features a 15-song set that includes “With You” and “Irresistible,” interspersed with snippets from Simpson and Lachey’s MTV reality show, “Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica.”

ABC will air “Nick & Jessica’s Family Christmas,” the couple’s second variety special, next month.
