Kelly Clarkson has revealed some exciting new details about her upcoming album, which is due out next year!
The original American Idol winner recently signed with a new record label, Atlantic Records, and is preparing to debut a new sound with her upcoming music.
“We are hoping the single will be in April, and then the album in June,” Kelly told People. “It’s my favorite thing I’ve ever done. It’s the first time I got to pick my label, because I just got out of my [American] Idol contract. I’ve been dying to make this record since Idol.”
Kelly says that the new sound is “soulful urban pop,” which matches the new label’s more urban sound.
“It’s very much my personality,” Kelly said. “I think it’s very much what people expected from me off of watching me on Idol. I sang all these Aretha [Franklin] things, I love Tina [Turner], I love Mariah [Carey], I love Whitney [Houston]. I think it’s very much what people expected in the first place. I love all my stuff that I’ve done but this is the record that has been in me since junior high. And that music from when I was in junior high is now coming back [into style] — like our 15-year-old listens to R&B that I listened to in high school.”
