The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are bidding adieu to 2020 with their first podcast for Spotify — along with a host of celebrity guests and a few (very) brief words from their young son, Archie.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Tuesday released a standalone holiday special, produced by Archewell Audio and Spotify’s Gimlet, exclusively on the Spotify global streaming platform.

In addition, the special features a cameo by Archie, the couple’s 19-month-old son. With some gentle coaxing from his parents, the toddler provides the signoff for the holiday podcast, saying, “Happy new year!” The podcast also includes a performance of “Amen, This Little Light of Mine” by Karen Gibson and London’s The Kingdom Choir.

The special comes under a multiyear pact between Harry and Meghan’s newly formed Archewell Audio production company and Spotify for a slate of exclusive podcasts designed to “build community through shared experience, narratives and values.”
