No one can sing “hey” like Kelly Clarkson.

Watch a glimpse of Kelly Clarkson’s new music video for “Love So Soft.”

The rumors were true. Clarkson’s new lead single for her forthcoming soul-inspired album is titled “Love So Soft.” The full thing premieres on Thursday, September 7, ahead her performance on the Today Show on Friday, but the singer is teasing a couple of previews of the audio/visual to ties us over until then.

Yes, Kelly goes full-force soul on the new track. There aren’t any lyrics featured in the clip, only a sung “hey,” but you can tell she’s about to go IN.

The video is reportedly directed by Dave Meyers (Here’s his Wikipedia; he’s a very big deal).

Kelly posted a countdown to the song’s release on her website. Stare at it here.
