Since 2007’s My December, we didn’t hear much about AI’s first winner and in my opinion, still the best American Idol out there. The album didn’t get as much commercial success as Breakaway although, I did love the 3 singles that came out with it especially Sober and Never Again. I think it has a lot to do with the controversy with her record label specifically to Clive Davis, legendary star-maker, with regards to ‘creative control’. Even I got influenced since I didn’t get a copy myself, which I regret now. Apparently, Davis didn’t think the album contained ‘hits’ and wanted her to rework on it. The issue was that most of the songs in the record talked about or contained themes of heartbreak and angst. When you think about it, it is true since she took control of her music career in Breakaway. But whatever happened to freedom of speech? Clarkson said in an interview that she doesn’t plan which songs will make it to her albums, it just so happened that among all songs she’s written these were the one that got pushed through and these songs happened to be sad. You know when women express these kinds of feelings it is automatically presumed that a boyfriend has gotten them astrayed. Or basically, that they should only talk about how love has set them free and made them better persons. Kelly’s a rocker, and rock songs almost always exude angst in them. She’s unique that’s why I love her, she’s not like your typical singing competition winner and I’m glad she took control over her career.

The new single entitled “My Life Would Suck Without You” written and produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke comes out January 19 in the US so we have to wait ’til then to hear it. Unless, someone leaks it in the net earlier. 🙂

The album “All I Ever Wanted” (official cover above) will hit record bars and outlets on March 17, 2009. To satiate our thirst for the moment the lyrics to the song got published already and here it is:

‘My Life Would Suck Without You’
Guess this means you’re sorry
You’re standing at my door
Guess this means you take back
What you said before
Like how much you wanted
Anyone but me
Said you’d never come back
But here you are again
Cuz we belong together now
Forever united here somehow
You got a piece of me
And honestly
My life would suck without you
Maybe I was stupid for telling you goodbye
Maybe I was wrong for tryin’ to pick a fight
I know that I’ve got issues
But you’re pretty messed up too
Anyway, I found out I’m nothing without you
Cuz we belong together now
Forever united here somehow
You got a piece of me
And honestly
My life would suck without you
Being with you is so dysfunctional
I really shouldn’t miss you, but I can’t let go
Oh yeah
Cuz we belong together now
Forever united here somehow
You got a piece of me
And honestly
My life would suck without you
