New Clarkson album arriving in July
EmptyOn the heels of gossip that Kelly Clarkson's third studio album, "My December," had been pushed back indefinitely, RCA has confirmed the set will arrive as planned July 24. First single "Never Again" debuted last week at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in the top 5 on the Hot Digital Songs and Hot Digital Tracks tallies.
"My December" was produced by David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Sugar Ray) and, as previously reported, features bass work by indie veteran Mike Watt (the Minutemen, fIREHOSE). Tracks include "Haunting," "Chivas," "Be Still," "One Minute" and "Sober."
Clarkson will showcase the new material during a summer tour that begins July 11 in Portland, Ore., and will run through Sept. 26 in Los Angeles. She will also perform July 7 at the Live Earth benefit in East Rutherford, N.J.
Before the tour, Clarkson will appear May 12 at Los Angeles radio station KISS FM's Wango Tango show in Irvine, Calif., and will perform May 15 with Reba McEntire at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.
