Kelly Clarkson changed style on new record: 'I've always wanted to make this album'
Kelly Clarkson says she has been making a soul-themed album.
The singer has perhaps been most associated with pop since winning American Idol in 2002.
However, she told Entertainment Weekly that her next record will stay away from the genre.
Clarkson said: "I've actually always wanted to make this album and I just haven't been able to.
"Even the producers that have worked with with me before, Greg Kurstin and Jesse Shatkin, [are amazed].
"I literally just got a long email from Jesse going, 'Oh my gosh! Why have you not made this record yet?' Because the sound is so innate in me. It's just so natural.
"I love making all different kinds of records, so it's not like I'm mad about it or anything. I've just wanted to make this particular record since I was in junior high."
