It's been less than a year since first American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, released her fourth album, All I Ever Wanted, but she's already hard at work on the follow-up.
Clarkson is already in the writing process, collaborating with 'different people' and her tour DJ, for a 'funk-dance' sound, but still maintaining the pop/rock tunes that she is known for. "Wish I Could Be Lonely", a song she's performing on tour, has also been confirmed to be on the album, while another new song was registered at ASCAP; "Mrs. Right".
No release date has been set for the album yet, but it should be out, according to Clarkson, 'sometime early next year'.
In other news, OneRepublic frontman, Ryan Tedder, opened up about the controversy surrounding Kelly's song, "Already Gone", and it's similarities to Beyonce's single, "Halo".
Although "Already Gone" was recorded first, "Halo" was released much earlier, even winning several awards, including Best Song at this year's EMAs. Tedder said, while producing "Halo", it wasn't his 'intention' to copy "Already Gone", but to come up with a song 'in the same vein' as Kelly's.
He also said he prefers "Already Gone" over "Halo", since 'it made all the girls I played it for cry'. He also mentioned that he would work with Kelly, who still hasn't reached out to him, again, but that he'd 'tread carefully', since he doesn't want to be accused of copying more songs.
A dance-funk Kelly album? Hmm... I don't really know how I feel about that. I don't wanna judge before hearing anything, but we'll wait and see. As for Tedder, sit down please. No one cares.
