We’re counting down the days until Piece By Piece —Kelly Clarkson’s first album of all new material in over three years— hits stores on Tuesday, March 3rd. To hold you over, we’re premiering one never-before-heard album track each day leading up to release. Yesterday we gave you the fierce “War Paint,” and today were back with “Dance With Me.” Give a listen, and read on for commentary from Kelly!
VH1: I love “Dance With Me,” it has such a joyous retro club vibe. It’s one of my favorite cuts on the album.
Me too, thank you! I had that song since the Greatest Hits album but I kept it behind. I just felt like it song was a little too progressive so I was said we need to hold it for the next album. I love that song, because I just love the whole connection of music. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from—everybody relates to music. At the end of the day, everyone dancing in that club has their own life going on and their own ups and downs. But it doesn’t matter at that point, because you’re just having a good time and releasing. That’s why I use music, it’s release and a form of escapism. So that’s why I love that song. It’s kind of a fresh sound right now, too.
