Kelly Clarkson debuts new single, 'Mr. Know It All': Hear the first song on her upcoming album 'Stronger'

Kelly Clarkson’s got a lot of amazing love songs — but she’s also the samurai of shooting guys down, telling them “I Do Not Hook Up,” “You Thought Wrong,” and even just “Don’t.”

So we were excited to hear that the new single from her album Stronger (which comes out Oct. 25) is called “Mr. Know It All,” and you can hear her call this bad guy other names (Mr. Play Your Games! Mr. Bring Me Down!) by clicking here to play the song on her official site, or checking it out below: 

Recently, Clarkson told EW’s Henry Goldblatt just how much faith she has in her new album: “Usually, on most albums, I’ll fight and be like, ‘No, this needs to be the single.’ There’s no real fighting on this. The label and I, we love all of them. We’re just going to see what everybody digs.”

But she’s especially excited about “Mr Know It All.” “I can’t wait to perform it,” she said. “It’s everything I am as a woman and a singer. I love telling men off!”

We love it too, Kelly. Especially since we’re not the men involved. Readers, what do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

    YAY!! I love it!

    • rover

      the message is ok.. her voice is good.. material is weak sauce.

      • Eh

        It’s okay.

      • jasper

        people who say weak sauce are weak sauce

    • tom

      she is back to her melodies……i love it…..i love a good song with a good voice……reminds me of the breakaway days….and screw you rover!

      • KLH

        I Love her ballads. And especially when she sings live. But she really blows most of these other women out of the water.

    • MultiPass

      Not bad. Although it sounds a little like it was written by Bruno Mars for some reason.

      • Sally in Chicago

        No, it sounds like something Beyonce would sing….not a bad thing.

      • O’Snap

        MultiPass nailed it.

      • Rob


      • Megan

        That’s because the drum track and overall arrangement sounds very, very similar to Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are.” Even the melody and chord progressions sound alike.

    • Lady GaGa

      Im so glad you liked my song!

      • Rob

        get a clue

      • Will

        I concur she is fat. And her nose has always bothered me, a tad on the “big” side. She needs to file the sides down a little, to refine it and give her a more aquiline profile and make her look more beautiful.

      • Kris

        Will, shut up. I guess you are so perfect? I cannot believe how rude you are. Grow up. Kelly is beautiful, funny, and amazing. Get lost loser!

    • Flip

      It’s really bad. I miss “My December” Kelly.

      • zakry

        You’re all alone in that.

      • S.

        Hey now Zakry- My December was a criminally underrated album. Good stuff. Flip is not alone.

      • TedE

        I actually loved My December, but I have really enjoyed most of Kelly’s music. This will be a fun CD to get to know! :)

      • Michael

        I agree with you. Nothing will ever compare to when she did Miss Independent, nothing!! Kelly Clarkson has definitely weakened with each album.

      • Sassy

        I loved all of her albums My December included. Sober, Irvine, and Chivas are some of my favorites by Kelly. I love when she writes music. She should do it more often!!

    • Caz

      She still hasn’t lost weight? She looks chunky.

      • untapttalent

        that’s a pretty pointless comment…first of all, she doesn’t have to lose weight, she’s beautiful and very, very sexy…secondly, that comment has nothing to do with whether or not you like the song which i believe this thread is supposed to be about…please keep the comments that are obviously grounded in some sort of prejudice to yourself. thanks.

      • Andrew

        What an incredibly shallow idiot you are, Caz.

      • Eh

        I hear ya, Caz. Skinny Kelly was more fun. Adele already has the Twinkie-genre wrapped up.

      • untapttalent’s Mother

        Untapt is such a smart girl—and she cleans her plate! Her second mother and I are very proud of her, and we’ll sure she’s going to be the first in the family to graduate with a degree in Medieval French Lesbian Poetry.

      • Ellen

        People can be chunky if they want to be. It’s not your business.

      • Megan

        Woah! Where’s the “rule” that says that on any given EW article about singers we can not talk about anything but their music? Does that mean I can’t say that her hair looks awesome or that I love her? Should we keep the comments strictly about the song? I think she is chunky indeed, she needs to lose at least 30 pounds.

      • Watcher about you post your pic up here for us to see megan? Let’s do a litte “constructive criticism” for you.

      • Kris

        Good one Watcher! I agree. Show us your fat a$$ Megan so we can insult the crap out of you. Shallow idiots!!!

      • Sabam

        just me & you Posted on I do family hsotiry research. First of all start in the area where she grew up. Start by looking for her Mother Father, siblings. Best friends in school. Then go to your local court house and ask for a marriage license in her name. I also go to face book and enter names.I enter name in the white pages sometime you can find people that way.

    • LOL

      Crap. Fake drum sounds. Yawn.

    • Adwina Lambert

      pfft!! you are soooo yesterday!! tee-hee!

    So different from her other fist singles, and so refreshing! It’s a subtle song, one that will be in my head for months to come.

    • Jaime

      Agree… very different then the rest of her 1st singles. I love it a lot and am excited to see how the album turns outs.

  • Mike

    • gonzo


  • David

    different but i love it

  • Dave

    Not my favorite song from her, but it’s decent and I’m looking forward to hearing the rest of the album.

  • Tia

    “Can’t nobody tell me”?
    What language is that?

    • Lindsey


      • KBC

        HA! Exactly! Not to mention… she says “y’all” as well.

      • Brittany

        Right because rap/hip-hop music doesn’t take many liberties when it comes to the English language…in saying that, I genuinely hate double negatives.

    • kathy60

      It’s called “artistic license”. Artists do it all the time!!

      • Dina

        Thanks Wouter! I did everything uenorkbn using butterfly kip and ran to save precious second’s in transitioning between stations at my studio. I lost one of my earrings during a round because I was crossfitting so hard! Brutal workout, thanks for the rest intervals BMac!

    • It means

      “someone can tell her.”

  • JoeC

    I liked her last record the best! Looking forward to having her back….

  • Elizabeth

    Very catchy…great hit potential. Good for you, Kelly.

  • Danny

    Love the mellow sound from her. Can’t wait for the album.

    • LOL

      She should try a salad.

      • Abby

        Seriously, that’s your comment? Not that the song was good or that you’re excited she’s got new material, but a swipe at the fact that she’s got curves? Wow.

      • Kris

        LOL is a real jackass. Get a life. She is rich and talented and you are dumb and a loser. Who is laughing now stupid?
