Kelly Clarkson Announces New Album 'Stronger' + Single "Mr. Know It All"

There have been several artists with albums called StrongerAgnes, Kristine W and Kate Ryan come to mind. Likewise, Britney Spears, Sugababes, Mary J. Blige and Gary Barlow (or at least their songwriters) have all opted for the word in the past when slapping a title on their jams.

And now Kelly Clarkson enters the fray by titling her upcoming fifth album, which is due out October 25, Stronger. News also came today that the first winner of American Idol (Jesus — way back in 2002) will unveil first single "Mr. Know It All" on August 30, following a live web chat on her official site.

Surprisingly, unlike the 4,286 other songs Kelly Clarkson recorded for the upcoming LP, "Mr. Know It All" has yet to leak in full.

But apparently the song "has a 'Just The Way You Are' vibe" (one assumes of the Bruno Mars variety?) and Ms. Kelly herself sounds "more like Pink."

So there you go.
