If you missed when Kelly Clarkson’s new album was accidentally leaked by the Norwegian division of iTunes late last month, now MTV’s the Leak has an official preview of All I Ever Wanted.
For the album, which will find its way to stores on March 10, [artist id="1231768"]Clarkson[/artist] seems to have pulled out all the stops. She hooked up with “Since U Been Gone” hitmakers Dr. Luke and Max Martin, sexed up her image a bit and even went back to her “American Idol” roots by including a song written by new judge Kara DioGuardi and airing a preview of the video for the first single, “My Life Would Suck Without You,” during an “Idol” commercial break. “My Life Would Suck” has been an instant smash. In its first week, it hit the #1 position on the Digital Chart, selling 279,000 downloads, and it later broke Britney Spears’ record for the biggest one-week jump in Billboard Hot 100 history, making the leap from #97 all the way to #1.
“It’s sick. She sings a song in two hours and kills it,” Luke said. “You’re just like, ‘Holy sh–.’ She has powerful lungs. She’s like the Lance Armstrong of vocal cords.
“After ‘Since U Been Gone,’ we wrote all these songs for Kelly,” Luke said, referring to his collaborations with Martin. “This one, which I think is the first single — we had the chorus awhile ago and added the verse more recently.”
Clarkson herself blogged about All I Ever Wanted in January. “I’m ready for y’all to hear this album! I’m so proud of it!!” she said. “I’ve had so much fun with this album I really hope y’all dig it.”
