- Kelly Clarkson is working on her next studio album, which the 38-year-old singer anticipates will be her most personal album yet.
- After filing for divorce, Kelly anticipates her new project will showcase all the emotions she experienced during (and after) her marriage to Brandon Blackstock.
In case you’ve been too consumed to stay caught up with all the latest celeb relationships, we have news for you: Kelly Clarkson is newly flying solo.
Fortunately for fans of the 38-year-old singer, her June 2020 split from Brandon Blackstock is proving to be fodder for her upcoming album.

On Sunday, September 13, NBC shared a clip of Kelly’s interview with Willie Geist for Sunday TODAY.
Kelly opened up about her divorce, and told Willie about how making her new album has helped her cope throughout the rough process: "I've been talking to friends that have been through divorce. I don't know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever for everyone involved."
“This next record, this will probably be the most personal one I’ve ever released,” she told Willie. “The whole record is basically every emotion you experience from the beginning of a relationship, to the end of what it is now, and it's been very therapeutic for me.”
She admits that navigating her new songs and putting this album together has been very therapeutic for her in the midst of the divorce. As cathartic as it is, however, Kelly also admits it’s quite weird.
“I’ve never written about my life to where my kids are singing along,” she told Willie, explaining that she plays the songs in the car and, while her kids don’t understand what they’re about or how close they hit to home, they know all the words.
Earlier this year, Kelly won an Emmy Award for her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, and also recently filled in for Simon Cowell as a judge on America's Got Talent. She'll return as a coach on The Voice this October, and we can't wait for more music!
