If Feb. 5 is too far away (and it is! it’s six days away!) for the Jewel fans out there, have no fear: a cut of your mistress of songs singing with Kelly Clarkson is making its way around the Internet.
The pair teamed up to tackle “Foolish Games,” off Jewel’s soul-saving Pieces of You. The new version — available on her upcoming greatest hits album — is heavier than the original, with less cresting woe. Also: less strings and less of Jewel reaching for the attic end of her upper register. Generally less of everything, except Kelly Clarkson, which has the upside-down effect of making the track even better, and definitely a dash more empowered.
Take a listen below and then chime in: Does this make the wait for Jewel’s Greatest Hits any easier? And who will Kelly duet with next?
