  1. No no no, the recording wasn’t courtesy of the kelly clarkson express, the person who is leaking the songs is trying to make the KCE look bad, the Express HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SONGS LEAKING.

  2. Not bad, not bad at all. I want an acoustic style album from Kelly but that’s probably not going to happen until after her RCA term is over right?

  3. I have attended one of Kelly’s VIP acoustic sets. Her tour manager asks that no one tape the unrecorded songs. We are privileged to hear them in this intimate setting. I must admit I taped the one I attended but would never share it on the internet out of respect for Kelly. Kelly was in a country mode the night I attended covering Miranda Lambert’s The House that Built Me.

    Kelly’s original songs are in very raw form. If actually recorded, they would probably sound very different.

  4. First off, I do love this song. Very much :) As I am a HUGE KC fan. But this is just wrong. Being that these songs were recorded during her pre shows (where fans were specifically told not to record them) for people that bought the VIP 1 packs which cost them around $280. Not only did the tour manage always ask them not to record, but Kelly specifically did herself at one show. She said she wanted that to be especially special because the people attending paid a whole lot of money for it. Not only that, some of the songs may be up for the new album. It’s these kind of leaks that HURT KC’s sales. You say at the end that you love KC, but if that were truly true and you were a good fan then you wouldn’t be posting these knowing it’s against her wishes. And the KCE is not behind this. They have done a VERY GOOD job of keeping the songs undercover and have prohibited posting them on the site. Even if the person that sent you these songs is on the KCE that doesn’t mean you hold them all accountable. 1 person doesn’t equal a nation. And if you’re doing this to get that person to send you more songs, extortion isn’t the way and it’s sad that a KC fan would act in such a way. Maybe that person doesn’t have any more to send you, and maybe if you had asked kindly enough you would’ve gotten more. Those things do take a little time (especially for some non english in this situation). But now you can be sure that you wont get any more. Sad to throw it off on the KCE. I’m assuming you’re a member (even worse) and therefore should know that KC is well aware of the site and checks into it at times. Why would you want to throw a negative image on them like that? And why would you want to disregard KC’s wishes when she’s been so good to her fans?

    KCE IS NOT BEHIND THIS!!

  5. The audio was probably sent to mj. As a journalist she has no obligation to “protect” Kelly by not posting audio that is already all over the ‘net. Yes, it’s sad people disregarded Kelly’s wishes by taping it (regardless of whether or not they also posted it online), but it’s not mj’s job to undo what somebody else did. If Kelly’s fans can’t be trusted at the VIP get togethers then I would assume she may stop doing stuff like this. Sad.

  6. First, I can’t get the song to play. I want to hear the new Kelly! :( ;)

    Kelly’s original songs are in very raw form. If actually recorded, they would probably sound very different.

    It’s not uncommon for artists to try out new songs in front of audiences for more than a year before they record them. Radiohead “tried out” some of the songs on In Rainbows for more than a decade.

    These days artists should know that trying to keep these things under wraps is useless and counterproductive. Let people hear the artistic process at work. If a song is ready to be performed in front of a regular audience, then it’s ready for constructive criticism and enjoyment. Who cares if it sounds different later. Some fans actually like that kind of thing.

    Also, It’s not usually considered polite to say “I have something you don’t have, and you can’t hear/see it.” Why did we need to know you have that recording? Keep it to yourself, and enjoy it in your own time, but don’t flaunt it unless you’re going to share.

    some of the songs may be up for the new album. It’s these kind of leaks that HURT KC’s sales.

    Leaks don’t hurt albums if the artist is established. That’s a myth. ETA: Unless the album is crap. That’s another story, though.

    I understand that she wants to give something special to these people who paid a ton, but “special music” is always a bad idea. Her personal time and attention, and the intimate setting sounds more than enough to cover the cost for these people. I mean, they got to see it live from a few feet away! That’s a huge difference from some low end YT clip.

    It’s her management that’s misguided if they think they can control this sort of thing. Don’t hang mj for doing her job.

  7. Jason Mraz have been playing “I’m Yours” for several years and have also been in Youtube for several years(including numbers of covers) before being officially recorded. if the song is good, i think it would just create anticipation among the fans once they found out its being officially released. i think its a great way(and cheap) to promote a song or an up coming album. i didnt have a problem preordering the album once i found out that that song was part of his new album.

    First of all, how would I know what Kelly’s wishes are? The song was posted up on You Tube, it was posted in my comments section, I posted it on my front page. The fanwarring going on behind the scenes? I have no idea about that, and frankly, it’s none of my business.

    I’ve posted new songs from David Cook and any number of Idols who have tried out new tunes on the road. It’s typically not a big deal, or a state secret, so I had no reason to think posting the song would be a problem.

  9. Is Kelly trying a little country cross-over again. This song sounds very Shania Twain to me. I’m sure once a producer “over produces” it, once again, it won’t sound the same at all.

    Good on you, mj. It’s not your job to moralise these situations. I as a Kelly fan appreciate this, and it’s not going to make me want to buy her next album less. And however much extra those people paid for tickets, they paid to hear and see her live – by listening to the recording I’m not getting someone else’s money’s worth. A dodgy recording is nowhere as good as being there.

  11. It’s back public again and it’s a good song.

    Is Kelly trying a little country cross-over again.

    Doubt it anytime in the near future. These songs have been written over period of quite a few years, but I do think that’s a comfortable area for her and her co-writers to write in. There’s a few more that are way more country though and one or two of them were actually pitched to country artists.

    Most of these songs will never see the light of day on an official recording, just because, but there are a few of the originals that she sang that she did mention had just missed the cut for her two previous albums for various reasons or will be trying to get on a future recording.

    mj, you’re cool. There’s no fanwarring happening so to speak, there’s just one psycho person with a long history (Youtube uploader) up to their psycho ways once again. You wouldn’t know that so it’s not fair for those who jumped on you. People at these VIP shows were given strict instructions not to record or video or any of that stuff. Obviously people still did. I think they knew it was happening, they had to have known as everything seems to get recorded. On several occasions, Kelly did ask that these songs not be posted online so that these things remained special to those that did pay the extra money. Having said that, the tour is over and I doubt they’d make a big deal about the stuff getting out now.

    I’d be really surprised if this is all that ends up surfacing. If more do though, can you not give the credit to Kelly Clarkson Express because they have nothing to do with it (see previously mentioned psycho) and have a policy of not posting these leaks. It would be appreciated.

  12. Oooh. I likey! No reason to hide this at all. She really is a good songwriter, and the title works well. I’d love to hear this all rocked out too. Don’t hear the country comparison, but YMMV.

    have a policy of not posting these leaks. It would be appreciated.

    You don’t know how journalism works, do you?

  13. oh how i wish there was a studio recording of this! i’m obsessing over it right now. haha
