Alright, folks, 2015 is the year of the Kelly Clarkson. The singer, who has taken a lengthy break since her last all-new LP, is expected to drop her brand new single "Heartbeat Song" on Jan. 12. Written by Clarkson, Audra Mae (Miranda Lambert‘s “Little Red Wagon”), Kara Dioguardi (Clarkson’s “Walk Away,” P!nk‘s “Sober”) and Jason Evigan (Nick Jonas‘ “Chains,” Maroon 5‘s “It Was Always You”), the song is the lead offering from her yet-untitled seventh studio album.
Fans can unlock two more teasers and the single's cover art by sharing on Twitter. (Get to it!)
As Popdust previously reported, fans uncovered "Heartbeat Song," as it was registered on ASCAP. “The next record is more innovative,” she has said of the new album. “It’s really, really awesome.” On the record, Clarkson enlisted a popular male artist for an "out of the box" collaboration. Speculation is also running rampant, with fans guessing it could be Robin Thicke, Bruno Mars, John Legend or Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine. Of course, she's teamed up with countless other male singers, too, including country superstar Jason Aldean and The Fray's Isaac Slade.
Reportedly, she also worked with "Chandelier" hit-maker Sia for the record.
