Thank goodness! Kelly Clarkson is back!
Her latest single, “My Life Would Suck Without You,” hit radio yesterday (timed perfectly with the premiere of Season 8 of “American Idol”!), and it’s truly a return to form --- Pop rocker girlie goodness, sung by one of the best voices out there.
U.S. & World
Haven’t heard it yet? You can take a listen to it HERE.
Think it sounds a little bit like “Since U Been Gone”? You’re right! It does! And thank goodness, because that song was certainly amongst a lot of Pop music lovers’ favorites of the past decade!
Now, that being said, I am amongst the few who actually liked Kelly’s 2007 album, “My December.” In fact, I loved it. It’s been written far and wide about how “December,” Kelly’s third album, was a serious departure for the first season “American Idol” winner.
Sure, it was personal and not as sugarcoated (literally) as the attached key art for the latest single – but it also gave her a bit more indie cred and insight into who she is as an artist. It also contained my favorite never released Kelly track: “How I Feel” – which was very traditional Pop Kelly.
Kelly’s fourth studio album, “All I Ever Wanted,” is due out March 17.
Hopefully, the rest of it is as fun as this single. But secretly, I hope there’s a bit of her darker side included buried in the track listing as well.
