‘That would be really fun to do’: Kelly Clarkson plans to re-record her early hits | Entertainment
Kelly Clarkson plans to re-record her early hits because she prefers the sound of her voice now.
The ‘Breakway’ singer – who rose to fame after winning the first season of ‘American Idol’ in 2002 – said it would be “really fun” to follow in the footsteps of Taylor Swift, who is currently re-recording her early albums after Scooter Braun bought her former label, Big Machine Label Group, for $300 million, and with it acquired the rights to her back catalog.
Scooter’s Ithaca Holdings then sold the catalog to Shamrock Holdings, without offering the 32-year-old Grammy winner the chance to purchase her masters.
The 39-year-old singer has no reason to re-record her hits except that she feels she has a “different voice” from her teenage years, and she’d like to know how the songs would pan out.
Kelly is quoted by The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column as saying, “I would. It’s because I feel like my voice is stronger than it was when I was 19.
“I feel like my range is bigger and it’s a different voice.
“It would be interesting to record the songs that I like and even some of the hits that I can’t listen to because sometimes the producer keeps you there too long because they want it to be right.
“At this point in my life, that would be really fun to do.”
After Taylor released the re-recorded version of her acclaimed 2012 album ‘Red’ last year, the ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker admitted it wouldn’t have been possible if her Swifties hadn’t ’emboldened’ her. to “reclaim” his art.
She wrote on social media at the time: “Just a friendly reminder that I never thought it was possible to go back and redo my previous work, discovering lost art and forgotten gems along the way, if you hadn’t emboldened me.
“Red is about to be mine again, but it’s always been ours. Tonight we start again. Red (my version) is now available. (sic)”
