Pop superstar Kelly Clarkson released her newest album Piece by Piece on Tuesday, March 3. Among the different tracks, "Let Your Tears Fall" stands out as one of the Clarkson's best.
On Piece by Piece, Clarkson delivers dance tracks and ballads with an emotional edge. She also dabs in more electronic music as heard on the massive single "Heartbeat Song." Kelly's synth-y sound and caring tone best come together on "Let Your Tears Fall," a track penned by Sia and produced by pop hitmaker Greg Kurstin. It's a new sound for Clarkson that she wears proudly.
Glittering synths seemingly lifted from an Owl City track and robust beats encompass "Let Your Tears Fall." Clarkson offers herself as a commiserating confidant with a powerful performance. "No, I won't judge you and I'll help you through," she sings. For those struggling through life, Kelly proves to be just what the doctor ordered. "Let Your Tears Fall" is absolutely beautiful in message and sound with an impassioned Clarkson there to make it all better.
Apparently, "Let Your Tears Fall" was also the first song cut in the studio for the Piece by Piece album sessions. "#LetYourTearsFall was the 1st song I recorded 4 this album," Clarkson wrote on Twitter. "Thanks @GregKurstin @sia!!! My kids call this the game song. I don't know why??"
Piece by Piece is Clarkson's seventh studio album. Her last release, 2013's Wrapped in Red, peaked at no. 3 on Billboard's albums chart. Before that seasonal record, 2011's Stronger reached no. 2. In support of her newest set, Kelly will embark on the Piece by Piece tour trekking across the country this summer.
