Kelly Clarkson Describes New Songs As 'Garbage-Meets-Pop-Meets-Muse'

The singer eyes a fall release for 5th studio album

[artist id="1231768"]Kelly Clarkson[/artist] has said that her next LP will be "really different,"

and she provided some more details in an interview with Atlanta radio station Q100 earlier this week.

"We're already working on it but it's probably not going to hit until, like, the fourth quarter of next year — around Christmas next year," she told the station. "There's still some like singer/songwriter stuff [on the album], but there's ... I don't know. It's almost like Garbage-meets-pop-meets-Muse. It's a little different."

But even though she's eyeing a new sound, the singer admitted that in such early stages of the process, things are bound to change. "I don't know how it's going to end up. Who knows?" she said. "It always ends up being something completely different."

Clarkson wrapped up the North American leg of her All I Ever Wanted Tour

on Sunday in New Orleans. The singer will head over the pond to for a World Tour beginning in February, stopping in the United Kingdom, South Africa and Australia. And she may make an appearance at the Grammy Awards on January 31 — the singer was recently nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for All I Ever Wanted.

Early last month, the songstress told Chicago radio station KISS-FM 103.5 that along with penning tracks for new own album, she's also taking part in writing for others. "So we've been writing for other artists but then I end up liking it so much that I can't give them away," she said.
