Kelly Clarkson has opened up about what we can expect from her upcoming eighth studio album, which is due out later this year and will be the first with her new Atlantic Records contract!
“It’s got a lot of sass — like I might beat you up with my sound” the 35-year-old entertainer revealed (via Variety) of her still-untitled album, which Kelly said is a mixture of “urban, pop, soulful R&B” while speaking at the Featured Presentation: Music’s Leading Ladies Speak Out panel powered by Nielsen Music during Music Biz 2017 at Renaissance Nashville Hotel on Tuesday (May 16) in Nashville, Tenn.
“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 added. “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.”
