Background and composition
Following the conclusion of her Summer 2015 tour, Kylie went into the studio for the latter half of the year to record for her first full-length holiday album Kylie Christmas, released in November 2015.
Lyrically, "Cried Out Christmas" deals with the anticipation of a loved one returning for Christmas after some time apart, as well as havinf a double-entendre for waiting for the arrival of Santa Claus. The song was written by Kylie, Karen Poole and Matt Prime, whilst production for the song was handled by the latter. The song runs for three minutes and forty four seconds. It is written in the key of E major, and set at a tempo of 102 beats per minute.
"Cried Out Christmas" was released initially as the third of three bonus tracks on the standard edition of Kylie Christmas; following the addition of six songs and a re-jig of the track listing for the Snow Queen Edition, "Cried Out Christmas" appeared as the twentieth song on the album.
