Global Star Kelly Clarkson Releases New Single “I Dare You”

The American Idol legend Kelly Clarkson has released yet another stunning hit titled “I Dare You.” The track is available to stream through all major streaming sites here. The release was partnered with an inspirational lyric video which can be seen below:

The track was created to express love and positivity – the release couldn’t have come at the more perfect time right now. Kelly created this track with an extremely talented team behind her including; Natalie Hemby (The Highwomen, Kacey Musgraves), Laura Veltz (Dan + Shay, Maren Morris) and Ben West (P!nk, Lady Antebellum). This was as well as longtime collaborator and friend of Kelly; Jesse Shatkin – who is a songwriter and producer notoriously known for working with some of the biggest stars in the music industry (One Direction, Sia, Jennifer Lopez).

When talking about the song, Kelly states that;

“This is my favourite / hardest project that I’ve ever worked on. It has always been a dream of mine, as I grew up singing in different languages, to find that perfect song, with the perfect message, to connect us all globally and then record that song with several other artists around the world in their native languages. We have put a lot of work into this as a team and decided to continue with our release date of this project because we feel like we all couldn’t be more connected right now across the world, and maybe this message will bring a little hope in this sometimes dark, and isolating time. Thank you so much to all the artists that worked on this with me. We hope everyone out there connects with this message and chooses love instead of fear. I dare you.”

The sensational singer has taken this single to even further lengths by releasing a five-track collection of multi-language duet versions. This unique bundle sees Kelly Clarkson duet with some of the worlds most gifted musicians including; Zaz (‘Appelle Ton Amour’ – French Version), Faouzia (Arabic Version), Blas Cantó (‘Te Reto A Amar’– Spanish Version), Glasperlenspiel (‘Trau Dich’ – German Version) and Maya Buskila (Hebrew Version). For more information about this incredible bundle, please visit Kelly’s website here.

Kelly Clarkson has come a long way since her American Idol win back in 2002. Last year she set off on her enormous 28-show US Arena tour, as well as being nominated for a Grammy for her eighth studio album, ‘Meaning of Life’. We’re always thrilled to see what Kelly’s next step in her career is.
