thank you for the new thread! :yay:

she pretty much confirmed the news in a tweet of her own as well:nod: apparently news this week!

Apparently rumors on IG of Kelly Clarkon's new single being named "Christimas Isn't Cancelled (Only You)" and will be released on September 24th!

plus she recalled this in the interview I posted in the news thread :)


The Kelly Clarkson Show returned September 13, and Clarkson was back on The Voice beginning September 20. If those gigs as well as being a mom weren’t enough, she’s also about to drop a second Christmas album, which she says is a “very different” kind of holiday album. Last year, working through quarantine and enduring a public split from her husband, she struggled at times to be a cheerleader for all and wasn’t quite in the right frame of mind for holiday songs. It’s an “honest” Christmas album, she says.

If that title is true I love it :lol:

heartღaflutter 09-13-2021 11:57 AM

my first thought too Kelly :lol: seems to fit the general tone I think from the album... :lol: A bit more sad (honest) christmas songs..

Sounds interesting :look: Doesn't necessarily sound like a 'Christmas song' or at least not what you expect from one anyway

heartღaflutter 09-15-2021 11:31 PM

I think her whole album will not what we expect of a Christmas album, I hope it's a fun surprise that's not full on christmas and that some songs are a good listen in other times as well

Official info from Kelly! :) It's the 23rd, not the 24th, so next Thursday! :)


“Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You)” marks the first offering from Clarkson’s forthcoming ninth studio album, her latest since 2017’s Meaning of Lifeand her second holiday release following 2013’s Wrapped In Red.Meanwhile, this past week has seen Clarkson kick off the third season of the six-time Daytime Emmy Award-winning The Kelly Clarkson Show ahead of her return next Monday as three-time champion coach on the 21st season of The Voice.
official press release!

Kelly didn't speak of an album yet but the press release does!

plus Single cover art (I like her shot but I do feel that her name and the song title could pop out more with more beautiful letters but maybe that's me :lol:) I Hope they do better for her album cover :lol:

She also released the official art on twitter

Jason Halbert released credit info on his instagram, he wrote it with Kelly and Jess

The text could've been bigger but oh well :shrug:
Reminds me of something else but don't know what :look:

heartღaflutter 09-16-2021 10:29 AM

you mean her hairstyle? or the font?

her twitter profile pic and banner have also been updated

xkellyx 09-16-2021 11:45 AM

Can't believe the title is real :lol: Happy to see she wrote on it too!

heartღaflutter 09-16-2021 11:50 AM

Me neither but in a way it's really cool :lol: I have a hard time imagining what that sounds like in a song but I always have that issue when we get song titles

Has Jess been part of the lyrics before? Did she ever co-write something with Kelly?

her stylist said this on instagram


Eeeeeeeekkkkkk! I am so excited for everyone to hear this song!!! To hear this album! It’s so freaking good. Christmas isn’t canceled (just you), @kellyclarkson new single artwork. Old Hollywood Mamacita…

someone on the pulse boards mentioned that they heard the song (HOW?) and it wasn't as catchy as UTT but a fun song or something like that...

Well I must admit it is hard to top the catchy beat of UTT

she just released a small part of the lyrics

shinebrighterxx 09-17-2021 12:10 AM


Well I must admit it is hard to top the catchy beat of UTT
Yeah this here :look:. Why does it need to be as catchy as UTT? But also I don't think she will top that. It'd be a real challenge. But just from the title it doesn't seem like it is something to be comparing. UTT is a fun Christmassy love song. This song isn't likely to be that. It sounds more like a break up, I'm over you song. Different themes, going to connect with different people, & shouldn't be compared for that reason alone. Then catchiness shouldn't matter. You can't predict how a single will go based just on that. Right now people might want to hear something about how Christmas hasn't been cancelled, depending on what the lyrics are like. Right now people might need a song like this, you never know. Seems like a really random comment to me. But mostly - as you said - it will be hard to top UTT


you mean her hairstyle? or the font?
Neither. I was talking about the cover itself ;) :lol:

heartღaflutter 09-18-2021 12:05 PM

the bad fonts on the 'All I Want for Christmas is You' cover they did last year?

especially as UTT gains more streams each year it will be very unlikely that it can top it
but I can imagine that Atlantic wants to gain something from that christmas fame she's generating the last few years

well there are interesting rumors going around that she'll duet with Ariana Grande and Chris Stapleton on the new album!

Ariana has reposted the news of her single on her own instastory so that added to the rumors that were already there! Very curious to see if that's true!

and more lyrics

shinebrighterxx 09-18-2021 04:56 PM

If that question is again in response to my comment about the cover, no. I was talking about the cover as a whole. The image, mostly. But there's just something familiar about the whole thing. It is similar to last year's cover but that isn't it. I actually think it is reminding me of something a different artist has done.

She'll never top an old song easily, especially one which keeps gaining streams/listens. She may top in comparison of what a previous song achieved in the first week, month, year, ect. though. Atlantic will hope to be able to do that. Doesn't mean they'll pick the right songs to do it or even that Kelly will be able to do it at all. That isn't something you can ever truly predict or know. But it also may happen on a later single & not this one. Regardless though UTT shouldn't be used as a comparison.

Thanks for the new lyrics :)

heartღaflutter 09-19-2021 04:15 AM

I always find it hard with these lyrics that I can't place it how it should sound like, in my head it sounds just plain :lol:

shinebrighterxx 09-19-2021 09:53 PM

Yeah without music they're just words :shrug: Sound interesting though :)

I want to know what the album will be called :look:
