Kelly Clarkson’s “Heartbeat Song” is the best thing since sliced bread. And I freaking love carbs!
“Heartbeat Song” is upbeat, punchy and an awesome comeback track for Kelly, who’s last studio album dropped over three years ago (so rude). Sure, she had an Xmas album in 2013 with a couple of original tracks, but they were all happy love songs about the holidays and family and blah blah blah. This latest release is a possible insight into the direction Kelly’s taking her upcoming album, a welcome departure from the usual strings and screamers. This time, Kelly’s enlisting the help from Siri, using synthesizers and computers to concoct an original pop masterpiece.
Kelly shared a preview of the song a few days back, then an extended clip before the whole thing found its way onto the Internet Sunday night.
Holy cow I didn't even know my song would be up on iTunes already!! I just bought it haha! #heartbeatsong

Buy “Heartbeat Song” on iTunes
It’s super radio friendly, but the beauty with “Heartbeat Song” is its unlike anything on the radio right now. It’s got a futuristic ’80s vibe to it (it makes sense), meshing the sounds together with her iconic vocal style to lead her next musical installment.
