How’s that saying go again? What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? Kelly Clarkson knows something about that — and she just got even stronger.
For the second song off of her forthcoming album Piece By Piece, following her Jimmy Eat World-esque ode“Heartbeat Song,” the American Idol powerhouse vocalist is turning it up-up-up another notch by teaming with pop’s premiere songwriter Sia for a huge empowerment anthem. (See? Some artists WILL work with you, Kelly!)
The Greg Kurstin and Jesse Shatkin-produced song is as you might expect a pairing between the quirky singer-songwriter and the masterclass belter to be — emotionally earnest and vocally explosive. “You know I had lost hope, I was all alone, never been so low until you came along/Teacher, I feel the dots connecting,” she croons.
For longtime fans of Kelly’s powerful vocal skills, this one ought to supply all the insane runs and melodies your heart desires.
