GRAMMY-winning Atlantic recording artist Kelly Clarkson has premiered the visual for her show-stopping new single “I Don’t Think About You,” off her eighth studio album Meaning of Life. The stunning retrospective video tells an empowering story of resilience, growth and evolution.
“’I Don’t Think About You’ is the moment you realize something has no power over you anymore” explained Clarkson. “We all have people and/or situations in life that mold us and sometimes those situations can feel like they’re about to break us, but this song is about that morning you wake up and you don’t even think about it anymore. It holds no power, no weight in your world, and consumes your thoughts no longer. It’s a song about freedom, honestly.”
The follow-up to the album’s GRAMMY-nominated first single “Love So Soft,” “I Don’t Think About You” was recently highlighted by live performances on the TODAY Show (watch) and Late Night with Seth Meyers(watch) ahead of her debut as a coach on the 14th season of The Voice. Already a fan-favorite show addition, E! News raved “(Clarkson) has ascended her rightful throne on the NBC reality juggernaut” while USA Todayechoed that “Clarkson’s bubbly presence fits right in with The Voice’s feel-good aesthetic.”
