Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson announced on her Facebook page yesterday that her as-yet-untitled fifth album, which was supposed to be released very soon has now been delayed until September.

In her FB post she says:

“I recently found out that my album won’t be coming out until September.  The album has been recorded but I can’t release it until then. I realize that is a long time but that’s the best time to release it apparently, so I’m sorry for the wait but I promise you it sounds great!”

On Valentine’s Day she got her fans excited for an earlier release saying:

“I record my last song on the 25th of this month and then we will be releasing the album!  This album was influenced by Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Radiohead and there’s a little bit of a country vibe/influence on a couple of songs.  Oh and also one of my favorites on the new album is highly influenced by Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder. Eric Hutchinson wrote it … the album is gonna be a great pop record! I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!”

Sony Music, Kelly’s record label, saids:

“We are all excited about Kelly’s new album and are looking forward to announcing a release date soon.”

I’m a big Kelly Clarkson fan so I’m really looking forward to some new music from her!
