Glee star Matthew Morrison celebrated Christmas in March (13) because he needed to feel festive while recording songs for his new holiday Ep.

The actor/singer reveals he decorated the recording studio with Christmas ornaments and even put up a small tree with lights to get into the spirit of the season back in the spring.

He says, "We put up some Christmas lights and created a festive vibe. It just shows that it is never too early to get into the Christmas spirit."

Morrison's six-track mini-album features his renditions of Christmas songs made famous by the likes of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Andy Williams.

He adds, "Selecting the tracks to sing was hard. Whenever I hear certain Christmas songs, it brings me back to my childhood."

The Ep, A Classic Christmas, was released on 25 November (13).
