When Kelly Clarkson heard that versions of her new single "What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)" were leaked online ahead of its official release, the singer decided to release the real version on her official website on October 4.
"Hey ya'll - I heard that some versions of 'What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)' started showing up online," Clarkson wrote on her site. "I want you to hear the real thing! Check it out!"
The single, which can be heard below, is the first song off her upcoming album "Stronger" set for release on October 24.
The song features lyrics like "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger/ Stand a little taller/ Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone."
Clarkson released the first single, "Mr. Know It All," off the new album on September 26 with an official video.
Clarkson rose to fame in 2002 after winning the inaugural season of "American Idol." The singer has since released four albums at RCA Records, her double-platinum debut album "Thankful" (2003), her multi-platinum double Grammy Award-winning "Breakaway" (2004), "My December" (2007) and her Grammy-nominated "All I Ever Wanted" (2009). Clarkson has sold over 10.5 million albums and Billboard magazine named her the "most successful 'American Idol' of all time."
