A snippet of a brand new Kelly Rowland song titled “The Sound” surfaced today. Picking up where “When Loves Takes Over” and recent jam “Commander” left off, “The Sound” is another energetic dance-pop tune that should please loyal fans of DJ/producer David Guetta. Rowland’s label Universal Motown confirmed to us today that her third solo album, which is still yet to be titled, now has a release date of September 14. Head below to hear Kelly take things to the disco once more with “The Sound,” and to watch her perform “Commander” live.[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Kelly-Rowland-The-Sound-Prod.-By-David-Guetta.mp3" text="Kelly Rowland - The Sound" dl="0"]
Kelly’s evoking some old-school Eurodance vibes with this one (where did we put that Real McCoy CD, anyway?), while still maintaining a current feel thanks to Guetta’s top-notch production. Can’t wait to hear the full version!
And here’s David and Kelly performing “Commander” for the very first time at the Winter Music Conference in March. (Note: It sounds like the live vocals have been stripped out for the recorded version—unless the onetime Destiny’s Child diva was lip-syncing?)
