Kelly Clarkson is back with a new soul influenced sound and instead of dropping just one new track she has delivered two from her forthcoming eighth (!!!) studio album “Meaning Of Life”. Out of the two new tracks “Move You” is the more traditional soul sounding. It’s less radio targeted unlike “Love So Soft” which boasts a massive chorus and production gimmicks. Instead it focuses on her vocal runs and the touching storyline. She croons about that ideal love, that love where you would do anything for them and they would do anything for you. That true and wholesome feeling you get whenever you’re around them. “Like a montage in a movie, right before the hero dies. Like the first time that you listen to your favourite singer live. Like an echo in a canyon. Like tears, but you’re not sad. Like a sunrise on a mountain, I wanna move you like that”. The soul sound crosses over into a gospel direction with a choir providing beautiful harmonies. As always, Clarkson’s vocals are powerful and captivating and will have you in awe from start to finish. This musical direction really highlights her strong points and reminds you why you fell in love with her all those years ago. It’s a beautiful song that makes you feel all warm inside and while it may not be directed towards radio airplay it’s still a song you really should listen to.
