The latest in the never-ending line of as-yet unreleased Kelly Clarkson songs to pop up on the Internet is the misty piano ballad “Lost.” Like the majority of the material that’s surfaced in recent months from the First Lady of American Idol, the track sounds like a demo in need of some polishing.

“Nowhere to go, walking alone, without your love I have no home,” Kelly laments on “Lost.” And really, it’s not so much the verses that seem to be lacking—they’ve got all the hallmark characteristics of a weepy Clarkson classic. Rather, it’s just those same chords that are repeated over and over throughout the song that seem to grate.
Again, it’s probably safe to assume this is a rough demo. But if this is indeed the final version of a track that appears on Clarkson’s next album, well—let’s just say this one might get “lost” on the way to the iPod.
