Kelly Clarkson Shares New Clues About Upcoming Single And Album!

When it rains it pours, and Kelly Clarkson just shared a lot of new details about her new single and album! She took to Twitter in the wee hours to set the record straight and to answer some of her fans’ pressing questions.

Perhaps the biggest and most important news came from her last tweet, in which she gave fans some mysterious hints about her upcoming single:

This may seem puzzling to most people, but some clever fans have figured it out already. We’re 99% sure that the answer to this puzzle clue is “Heartbeat Song.” If hearts are the proof of life, and Beats by Dre is what Kelly means, this song fits perfectly.

Way back in spring 2014, “Heartbeat Song” was registered on ASCAP. Kelly co-wrote it along with Kara DioGuardi, Audra Mae, and Jason Evigan. It’s great to know the lead single was written by Kelly!

And that’s not all. Kelly mentioned a few months ago that the single will be coming out in January. This plan has not changed, so be ready for a new single within the next few weeks.

Now to address those pesky rumors: The first single is NOT going to be a duet. The first single will be just Kelly, and we will have to wait a little longer to hear the duet.

And more on the duet: This male artist is someone that Kelly has sang with before. Who could it be? Kelly has sang with John Legend, Adam Levine, Robin Thicke, Chris Daughtry, and at least a dozen country singers. We’re hoping the duet is not with a country artist. Not that we dislike country, but nearly all of Kelly’s duets so far have been in that genre.  We’re ready for a proper pop duet this time around. Out of the guys Kelly has sang with before, we’re putting our money on either John Legend or Adam Levine. We could be wrong, but that’s our guess for now.

Note: It is a bit disappointing that the duet partner won’t be Bruno Mars as rumored. Hopefully it can happen in the future.

While we’re on the topic of genres, it looks like the two separate pop and country albums plan is out. Although Kelly promises this record will be pop, it has plenty of influence from other genres.

As previously reported, Kelly might have worked with Sia on her new record:

“Maybe” probably either means “Yes, but it’s a surprise so I’m not telling you yet” or “Yes, but we have to confirm the track list, and I don’t want to promise something that isn’t actually going to happen.” Consider us ready for Kelly’s own “Chandelier.”

That’s so much exciting news! We’re excited to hear Kelly’s new, non-duet single this month. “Heartbeat Song” sounds like a great first single for the new album! The duet will remain under wraps a little longer, but hopefully we’ll have a lot more information on the album in the coming weeks. Kelly’s album is due out this spring, so we’re not too far off now. You can catch up on everything we know about the album, and be sure to check out a list of known song titles.
