Kelly Clarkson Debuts ‘Heartbeat Song’ Lyric Video, Sets ‘Piece By Piece’ Album Release Date

January 26, 2015

Kelly Clarkson had debuted the lyric video for her new single ‘Heartbeat Song’ and announced the released date of her new album, ‘Piece By Piece.’ The much anticipated album is her first since her Christmas album ‘Wrapped in Red,’ more than a year ago.

Yes, Kelly Clarkson is back in the music world in full force after her wedding to Brandon Blackstock and the birth of the couple’s first child, a daughter. After a few intermittent free concerts last summer, the 32-year-old singer-songwriter and first season American Idol winner has not just hit the studio — while still pregnant, she later revealed — but has much to show for it.

Yes, there was the aforementioned ‘Wrapped in Red’ and before that, Kelly Clarkson released her first-ever compilation album, ‘ Greatest Hits – Chapter One.’ But one has to look back three years for the most recent album, which was ‘Stronger’ of 2011.

She announced that RCA will release her new album, ‘Piece By Piece’ on March 3rd so for fans, the wait is over. It’s her sixth studio album and she has also debuted the lyric video for the album’s lead single, ‘Heartbeat,’ which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 37.

The son has drawn notice because the “heartbeat” of the title is an actual heartbeat, Clarkson has revealed, none other than that of her young daughter River, while still in the womb. With that she follows in the trend of music artists incorporating their children as featured artists at as early an age as possible. With the heartbeat, Clarkson may have unofficially beat Jay Z whose daughter Blue Ivy is credited as a featured artist on the song ‘Glory.’

But now as we march forward to the March 3rd release of ‘Piece By Piece,’ we are now treated with the official lyric video. And, as we know, nowadays lyric videos have become, at times, full-fledged productions as intricate and potentially as viral as an “official music video.” Such is the case with Kelly Clarkson’s new video which has drawn much notice not least because it’s the first we’ve seen of her in quite a while.

Check out the new video below as Kelly Clarkson shows us she’s still a music superstar with the deeply touching ‘Heartbeat Song.’
