Kelly Clarkson dropped a new single on her official website today, a straightforward pop anthem called “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger).”
The tune, which may or may not be the title track of Clarkson’s upcoming October 24 album—iTunes simply calls the song “Stronger,” but her website uses the longer title—falls right into the American Idol’s belty pop/rock wheelhouse, and it should please fans who love that sound.
Personally, I’m more partial to the understated, sassy-but-soulful vibes on current lead single “Mr. Know It All,” but there’s chatter around the EW Music Dept. that Clarkson might have been better off releasing “What Doesn’t Kill You” as the first track from Stronger.
Take a listen below and decide for yourself.
What do you think, Music Mixers? Is this a stronger song than “Mr. Know It All”?
