Kelly Clarkson Releases New Song “i hate love” featuring Steve Martin
American singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson released a new song “i hate love” from her upcoming tenth studio album “Chemistry” on June 2, 2023.
The track features a guest appearance from American actor Steve Martin as a banjo player.
“The amazing banjo skills you hear on this is brought to you by the one and only Steve Martin!” Kelly Clarkson said in a statement. “I'd choose Martin over Gosling every time y'all!”
The song is the fourth single off of the album, following “Mine”, “Me” and “favorite kind of high”.
She co-wrote the song with American pop rock band Jonas Brothers' Nick Jonas and producer Jesse Shatkin.
The accompanying live video was directed by Weiss Eubanks and Jonny Mars, who filmed at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles.
Kelly Clarkson talked to audience about the song on the live video, “Anyway this next song, man, this is so cool. I am well also pissed, but the here's the thing, it's because the chemistry factor, right like you can't stand the person but like you love them and you're just like, why? And anyway, that's the Dilemma, right? So I wrote this song, and I don't know if you've ever seen I know everybody's seen probably the notebook, right? Okay. Have you ever seen 'It's Complicated' with Meryl Streep you're holding. Okay, it's like one of my favorite movies ever. And it's real life that one it's more like real life not like that bullshit. They sell you in the notebook. You're like totally that's real. But anyway, it's one of the things I ended up writing that and referencing that in this song and I referenced Steve Martin in it, and I'm a huge Steve Martin fan because I'm alive and breathing. And anyway, I have this crazy idea I was telling Jesse Shatkin and my producer was like, 'Do you think he played on it because he's like a badass musician.' And I really wanted banjo. He said 'Yes'. I was like 'What?' So anyway, he got to play on this, so it's so cool, I love that. But anyway, this song is yeah, I'm just really angry. So enjoy, 'I hate love'.”
The new album is set to be released on June 23, 2023 via Atlantic Records.
Kelly Clarkson said of the album in a statement, “Having chemistry with someone is an incredible, and overwhelming, feeling. It's like you have no choice in the matter. You are just drawn to each other. This can be good and bad. This album takes you down every path that chemistry could lead you down.”
