Kelly Clarkson Tie It Up Single Artwork

It’s basically a scientific fact that Kelly Clarkson can do no wrong. (Have you ever met someone who doesn’t like Kelly Clarkson? Exactly.) Accordingly, her single to follow up the inspirational one-two-punch of career retrospective “Catch My Breath” and uplifting stormer “People Like Us” will mark a change of pace as she takes a sharp left turn into country with a track titled “Tie It Up,” which she premiered at the CMA Festival on Saturday, June 8. (There’s also cover artwork, which sees her wearing a white veil, which is just like, ugh, Kelly. I’m so happy for you.)

The only video of the performance is so low-quality that it’s barely worth posting, but you can still hear the song’s winsome stomp and clever hook, so brace yourself and give this a spin. (And Kelly, anytime you want to premiere the full audio, that’ll be just fine by me.)

    That single cover is just awful. Everything about it looks awful…not to mention cheap. It looks like they picked those flowers off the ground and found the veil and dress at the nearest thrift store and just snapped the picture wherever they could.

      Please. Nothing about it looks awful or cheap. And those flowers are Kelly’s favorite kind and is going to be her wedding flowers. That’s why they are used in the cover.

  2. I love the cover art. Kelly looks so gorgeous and so happy. Love the song as well.
    I found a video with much better audio.

    TIE IT UP

    i was standin’ with my friend
    when i saw you walkin’ in
    and my heart started skippin’ a beat

    i was tryin’ to play it cool
    but i knew it was true
    That nobody would ever compete

    well first comes love and then comes…

    first date first kiss
    we were checkin’ off the list
    then you were gettin’ down on your knee

    and you didn’t have to guess
    it was a always a yes
    now there’s 2 less fish in the sea

    let’s set the date
    let’s hire a band
    let’s cut the cake
    tie up the cans
    i love the ring of your name
    you’re the ying to my yang
    oh baby let’s give it a shot
    every wall needs a frame
    every ball needs a chain
    i’m talkin’ about tying the knot
    tie it up

    something old, something new
    something borrowed, something blue
    and the chairs lined up in the yard

    the i do’s and the kisses
    from a miss to a misses
    can’t wait for forever to start

    let’s set the date
    let’s hire a band
    let’s cut the cake
    tie up the cans
    i love the ring of your name
    you’re the ying to my yang
    so baby let’s give it a shot
    every wall needs a frame
    every ball needs a chain
    i’m talkin’ about tying the knot

    tie it up
    invite the town
    let’s raise a glass and lock it down
    tie it up
    forever bound
    Yeah, I’m fit to be tied down

    when Mama’s kicked off her shoes
    and Daddy’s spinnin’ from the booze
    and the last song is finally sung

    we can run to the room
    kickstart the honeymoon
    don’t it sound like a whole lotta fun?

    let’s set the date
    let’s hire a band
    let’s cut the cake
    tie up the cans
    i love the ring of your name
    you’re the ying to my yang
    so baby let’s give it a shot
    every wall needs a frame
    every ball needs a chain
    i’m talkin’ about tying the knot
    tie it up

    Thanks for those lyrics. Heard a better video and it’s a real catchy upbeat song. LOVE IT!!! Love the cover. Kelly is in a very happy place right now and she deserves to be there. Sunflowers are her favorite and she and they look awesome in the cover.
