Kelly Clarkson announces new album, releases two songs

Singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson poses for a portrait in promotion of her album

At the moment, Clarkson's star is on the rise thanks to the announcement that she's releasing a new album, "Meaning Of Life".

On how she is different from other Idol winners: "A lot of people that I know, especially from Idol, don't necessarily want to be singers or artists; they just want to be famous", she says.

Meaning of Life marks Clarkson's first album since signing with Atlantic Records a year ago, and she says its soulful vibe is something she could only conjure now, at 35. She will also return to NBC next year in her new role as coach on the new season of "The Voice", set to premiere in February 2018. As expected, her vocals are as sharp as ever.

A soulful belter with spitfire verses and an avalanche-triggering chorus, Kelly Clarkson's new single is simultaneously of another era (i.e. the '90s) and quintessentially 2017.

United Nations sanctions seek oil embargo, ban on North Korean workers
The latest move to toughen measures against North Korea follows its latest test in a fast-advancing nuclear weapons programme. The draft calls for a resumption of long-stalled six-party talks with the goal of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.

Not since Beauty and the Beast have we wanted a yellow dress so badly. At one point during the show, she joked, "I'm sweating like a very promiscuous woman in church!" "This isn't a record I could have made at the age of 20". This morning, she revealed the first official single - an upbeat, soulful track called "Love So Soft".

"I'm so excited because they want to make the album I've been dying to make since I was a kid, and since I was on Idol", Clarkson said, according to E!

The singer added, "Although I am extremely thankful to the unbelievable people that I've had the chance to work with, I can not describe the excitement of working with Julie Greenwald, Craig Kallman and their team at Atlantic Records".

Meaning of Life will be available October 27, and you can hear an additional song, "Move You" by pre-ordering the album here.
