Kelly Clarkson will finally FINALLY release her long-awaited next album on October 25. And none too soon–as her fans have been waiting patiently for new music, songs have been leaking on the internet.
“Oh my God, have you ever been robbed? I have. I’ve been physically robbed a couple of times, but this is much worse, ” Kelly tells Entertainment Weekly in her first public remarks about the incident.
She has no clue how the songs, including “Let Me Down, ” “Dumb + Dumb = U, ” “Cleopatra, ” “Don’t Be a Girl About It” ended up online.
Many of these songs are very old. “There are songs out there that are from eight or 10 years ago–People are always asking me to write for other artists, ” Kelly says, “They’re awesome songs, [but] they’re just not songs I would normally sing.”
“Those songs came out and people are like, ‘Oh my God, what direction is Kelly going?'” she says. “I think what made me mad was that: 1) People stole from me, and 2): Everybody had no idea what my next album was going to sound like. That really caused a lot of confusion.”
As it turns out, a couple of the leaked tunes WILL end up on the new album, “Here’s the best part though, ” she says. “Nothing that’s leaked is the final version. Those are all demos.”
The lead single from Stronger, “Mr. Know it All” hits radio on August 30.
So…I wonder which of the lead demo’s will end up on the album? “Dumb + Dumb = You” is a new song, Also, there’s been speculation that the title, “Stronger” comes from “What Doesn’t Kill You”. Hm…
