Attention, Kelly Clarkson fans! We know you’ve had “Heartbeat Song” and “Invincible” on repeat — and now you can add “Piece By Piece” to the mix!
That’s right. Kelly just dropped the title track from her album and to say we’re freaking out is a major understatement. The song kicks off with an amazing ’80s vibe that we’re totally digging. But once Kelly’s vocals kick in, that’s when things get really good.
“Piece By Piece” is the anthemic, power ballad we’ve been waiting for. Warning: Though the song’s instrumentation is upbeat, the lyrics reveal there’s a lot more going on. (There’s a reason Kelly called it the “most personal song on the album.”)
“And all of your words fall flat / I made something of myself and now you wanna come back / But your love isn’t free / It has to be earned,” Kelly belts. “Back then I didn’t have anything you needed / So I was worthless.”
The most poignant moment on the track is when she appears to reference her new daughter, River Rose, singing, “Piece by piece I fell far from the tree / I would never leave her like you left me / She will never have to wonder her worth / Because unlike you I’m gonna put her first.”
Serious chills, guys. It’s poignant tracks like this one that make us so, so excited for Kelly’s upcoming album. It’s been waaaaay too long.
