Ryan Gosling and Mark Ronson have returned to the studio to record three new versions of Barbie song “I’m Just Ken.” Ken The EP features a Christmas-themed take on the song, plus an acoustic rendition and a Purple Disco Machine remix. You can see the video for the “Merry Kristmas Barbie” one below.

“I’m Just Ken” appears on the Barbie soundtrack alongside Billie Eilish‘s “What Was I Made For?” and “Dance The Night” by Dua Lipa. In a message posted on Instagram on Tuesday, Ronson reflected on how the festive version of the song came to be.

“I was also dying to show the song in a different context,” Ronson wrote. “He demanded i go “Full Ronson” with the arrangement (which i took to mean 2007 motown/wall of sound-obsessed me). Anyway, i sent this version to him last Tues and he dug it & it sounded so f***ing xmas that we were like, “man, can we get this out in a week?!” So he rerecorded the vocals and here we are, a week later serving up this version that we love with about 5 days til no one wants to hear a xmas record, but sometimes u have to do it 4 fun (& maybe a little for Barbie).”
