We said it before, and we’ll say it again: Kelly Clarkson is back! And we’re not just talking about her return after two years off. She’s been revitalized, with an image and confidence not seen in a decade or more. Today she released two new songs from her upcoming album, Meaning Of Life. “Love So Soft” is the feisty first single, while “Move You” is a soulful ballad that shows her range. Both are amazing.
“Love So Soft,” the official first single, is a retro-modern take on soul diva and current pop trends. The verses take it back a few decades, but the chorus will fit right in on today’s radio. But nothing will prepare you for its new video. We’ll just say it: “Love So Soft” is Kelly’s best music video in a decade. Gone are the days of simply singing in front of a plain green screen. “Love So Soft” shows Kelly in numerous settings, outfits, and moods.
It starts off with a 1950s vibe as Kelly sings from the driver’s seat in an old car. We then see her in a flowing gold gown in a field of white, clad in blue in an expensive cliffside home, and surrounded by dancers on a red-lit stage. She becomes a crowd, identified by her hat, gloves, and blonde wig. And throughout the video, her incredible backup singers are at her side.

If that wasn’t enough, Kelly also shared a lovely ballad called “Move You.” She’s stated it’s one of her favorite songs on her new album. “Move You” is gentle but sultry, slowly building up to its dramatic chorus and bridge. Listen to “Move You” below:
