Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is just one week away from releasing her seventh non-holiday studio album Meaning of Life on Oct. 27. From the album, she's already released lead single "Love So Soft" and the tender "Move You." Now, on Oct. 19, she's released the latest offering from the upcoming set, the title track "Meaning of Life."

"Baby I've living in the dark/ The only friend I got here is my broken heart," she opens along an urban beat. She's confessing the loneliness she's been feeling but her love is what brings her to life, showing her the light. "You show me love/ You lift me up/ You take me higher and higher/ The truth is that I'm in love," she sings.

"Meaning of Life," unlike so many of her previous records, is modern R&B pop just as she has been describing the album overall as a whole. The track was written and produced by Jesse Shatkin (Sia) who Clarkson has worked with in the past ("Invincible"). Shatkin also produced "Love So Soft" which has so far peaked at No. 11 on the Adult Top 40 radio airplay chart.
