Quote:Woohoo! Kelly Clarkson is going to release a new solo album after signing a record deal with Atlantic Records.

The 'Mr. Know It All' singer began teasing a major announcement this week when she sang live covers on Facebook every day, leading to the big reveal earlier.

"What's cool about Atlantic, too, is that they love every part of my personality," she said.

"I love the country side of me and I love the Broadway side of me and I love the pop side of me and the soulful side of me, and they're really down to make whatever record I'm into which I'm super excited about."

Atlantic CEO Craig Kallman and Atlantic COO Julie Greenwald said: "We are thrilled to welcome Kelly Clarkson into the Atlantic family.

"She is one of the greatest artists of our generation, a musical icon with an extraordinary, soul-inspired voice that has captivated millions of fans around the world.

"We are honoured to be partnering with Kelly as she embarks on this exciting new phase of her record-breaking career."

The upcoming album, to be released in 2017, will be a collection of soulful covers of other Atlantic artists.

Four of the songs - Radiohead's 'Creep', Coldplay's 'Fix You', Etta James' 'I'd Rather Go Blind' and Indie.Arie's 'Ready For Love' - are currently available for free download on Clarkson's new website.

I didn't know the album was gonna be covers. Disappointed, not into cover albums, never was.

I didn't know that either, but I'll gladly check out a soulful album by Kelly no matter what. I love her soulful side. Until then I think I need to buy her debut album for more of that soul pop side I'm looking for. Smile

Was hoping it would be originals, but you never know what will be on an album until it's close to being released.
Kelly just talked to Billboard about her new album. Says it will be the album she's always wanted to make since she was a kid, and that it's her favorite record. She also calls it her fresh take on 90's R&B/Urban Pop.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm very excited for this album! Big Grin Heart
Her new album "Meaning of Life" is out now! It's so damn good! Heart
