Kelly Clarkson just teased her upcoming new album, her first release in almost two years after absolute pop records.
Speaking at the Music Biz 2017, the "Because Of You" hitmaker revealed she's breaking away to a different kind of music - a mixture of "urban, pop, soulful R&B". "It's got a lot of sass - like I might beat you up with my sound," she said (via Variety). "My backup singers who've worked with me for years said 'It's the first time you've done a record that's, like, full-on your personality'".
Kelly thinks her motherhood contributed to her whole transition. "I've always been a confident person, I think that's just being Texan. but I think being a mom has brought another level of confidence, because basically the things a mom does daily - without adding a job - is pretty insane. We're gladiators, basically." Well, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Kelly's still untitled new album is due out later this year. It's the singer's first with her new Atlantic Records contract.
