Audio: Kelly Clarkson releases new single “Catch My Breath”
We're left wanting more.
"Catch My Breath" is your typical Clarkson song: nice enough beats that let Clarkson’s voice shine. I’m pretty happy that her camp hasn’t given in and filled her songs with auto-tune even though it’s the thing to do now. We know that she doesn’t need that (Christina Aguilera doesn’t need auto-tune either and it was heavily used it on her last video). Does the song reach the heights of songs like "Since U Been Gone?" Not quite. Yes, it’s a solid pop song, but I am left wanting more. Clarkson is one of my favorite singers but I think most of her material can be stronger; she has the chops to sing circles around most of today’s “pop stars.” Why not give her some songs that really stand up among the very overcrowded pop arena?
