After a handful of false-start announcements by the overeager singer, not to mention a bevy of demo leaks, Kelly Clarkson finally, officially, has a release date for her fifth studio album and its first single. The last five months have felt like a long road to a release date, ever since the singer, after recording wrapped in February, announced that the record would not be released until September. (Less than half a year pales in comparison to, say, the wait for Dr. Dre‘s Detox, but can you blame us for being enthusiastic?) But let’s not get bogged down in the false-start specifics. Here’s the news: On August 30th (two weeks from yesterday), single “Mr. Know It All” will be premiered on a live webcast on the singer’s recently relaunched website, before going on sale everywhere a week later. This single is the first from Stronger, an album due out October 25 but available to pre-order now. Get excited.
