Kelly Clarkson "Breakaway" CD Info
Kelly Clarkson likes her current single so much she's
stealing the title for her second album.
Due November 30, the follow-up to Thankful will be
called Breakaway, which is the name of Clarkson's
contribution to the "Princess Diaries 2" soundtrack.
"It's a little more rock than last time, but still has
a lot of soul," the original "American Idol" said of
the album in a message on her Web site.
Former Evanescence member Ben Moody, Evanescence
songwriter David Hodges, veteran pop producer Max
Martin and red-hot producer John Shanks (Ashlee
Simpson, Hilary Duff) are among Clarkson's
collaborators on the album.
Clarkson has decided on "Since You've Been Gone" for
the first single and will shoot the video next week
with a yet-to-be-determined director, according to her
RCA Records spokesperson.
"It's a big pop-rock song that kind of hits like 'Miss
Independent,' but it's different and a bit more
rock-sounding," Clarkson said.
Clarkson finished Breakaway last week, just in time to
trek to Boston to sing "God Bless America" at the
World Series. She also shot her second guest stint on
"American Dreams," again playing Brenda Lee. The
episode will air November 21, three days before
Clarkson returns to the small screen in an "American
Idol" holiday special.
In her Web site posting, Clarkson also informed fans
of the status of her relationship with Hodges, whose
new band recently signed with Epic Records.
"To clear the air, we were dating, it didn't work out,
but we are still friends," she wrote.
