Actor Bill Murray plans to sing classic Christmas carols in a TV special directed by his "Lost in Translation" collaborator Sofia Coppola this holiday season.

"It’s not going to be live," Murray told Variety of the project. "We’re going to do it like a little movie. It won’t have a format, but it’s going to have music. It will have texture. It will have threads through it that are writing. There will be prose. It will have a patina style and wit to it. It will be nice."

Coppola said the motivation for the project was to hear Murray singing her song requests, Variety reported. It hasn’t been determined when the special will air.

Murray has been known to sing regularly, and many clips of the comic actor singing can be found on YouTube. He also sings along to Bob Dylan's "Shelter from the Storm" in his upcoming movie "St. Vincent."

Fans shared their enthusiasm about the project on Twitter.
