Melanie Martinez Spices Up Christmas With "Gingerbread Man": Listen

Earlier this month, Melanie Martinez hinted to Fuse that she was up to something to celebrate the upcoming Christmas holiday and now we get an early Christmas Eve present.

Take a listen to "Gingerbread Man" above, a new that combines the same offbeat-pop sound heard throughout her Cry Baby album, but now with a delicious new metaphor for fans to sink their teeth into. As the creepy-cutesy cover art (seen above) suggests, this isn't your usual kind of Christmas carol with trap beats, ominous groans and empowering lyrics like, "I need a gingerbread man, the one I'll feed / The gingerbread man, the one I'll eat / One who's always crazy, never calls me baby" on the chorus.

We dig the atypical take on the usual Xmas song so consider this one of a late entry into 2015's best holiday songs.
