Kelly Clarkson Doesn’t Disappoint With New Song “Let Me Down”

Becky Bain / July 6, 2011

It only took five seconds of listening to the chorus to Kelly Clarkson’s new single “Let Me Down” to know the original American Idol wouldn’t be letting us down with her new material. The full song has now found its way online, and even though it may just be a demo recording, there’s no doubt the 29-year old singer has created yet another rousing pop anthem as only she can sing it. (Well, and maybe Pink. Pink could probably work this song no problem.) Listen below!

Kelly Clarkson – “Let Me Down”

“You’re only gonna let me down / When it counts, you countdown / You’re only gonna turn me out / As I burn, you burn out / You’re only gonna make me feel so crazy / But when I think we could be something / You go and let me down, let me down, oh,” sings Kelly. It’s no “SINCE YOU BEEN GOOOOONE!” as far as choruses go, but it’s already stuck in our heads.

It was previously reported that Clarkson’s lead single (presumably this song) would drop in August. But now that it’s found it’s way onto the Internet and into our hearts, best to roll it out a little early, no?

What do you think of “Let Me Down” in its entirety?
