If last week’s Twitter rant by Kelly Clarkson was any indicator, we should all be happy that the Grammy-winning songstress has been keeping her tweets to herself in the wake of another unreleased song making its way online. “Cleopatra,” a demo of a tune Clarkson said she’d written for another artist, leaked last week and caused her to go off on “disrespecting, lying, sneaky little trolls.” But while “Cleopatra” was meant to be handed off to someone else, “Naked Eye,” a new song, sounds like 100% pure Kelly Clarkson. Have a listen after the jump.

Kelly, who recently turned 28, sounds in top form on this upbeat, slick pop track (though the chorus seems a bit sparse, lyrically). If “Naked Eye,” which musically falls into the “My Life Would Suck Without You” vein, isn’t yet on the slate as a single release, it ought to be.
“Can’t take back what you can’t change, can’t fix what’s more than broken,” Clarkson sings. And that applies to songs surfacing on the Internet in the modern age.
So we say slap this jam onto iTunes pronto, Kelly, even if your album isn’t fully ready yet. Because you’ve got another surefire hit on your hands.
UPDATE: Be sure to check out Kelly Clarkson’s other new song “Wash Rinse Repeat,” which appears to be a not-so-thinly-veiled attack on Ryan Tedder.
