Kelly Clarkson looks ecstatic on the cover of her upcoming Atlantic Records debut. The singer tweeted out the wind-blown, glittery cover of Meaning of Life on Thursday morning (Sept. 7), in which she is depicted hitting what looks like one of signature diva notes as her hair cascades over her head. Fans who pre-order the album today will get an instant free download of "Move You" and the album's first single, "Love So Soft." 

Meaning is described as "the album Kelly Clarkson was destined to make with Atlantic Records, a collection of smart and sensual soul-inspired pop that immediately belongs among the legendary label’s classic canon." The singer's eighth studio album includes such past collaborators as Jason Halbert, Jesse Shatkin and Grammy-winning producer Greg Kurstin, as well as first time collaborators Mick Schultz, The Monarch, Nick Ruth and others.

Clarkson will perform "Love So Soft" and "Move You" on The Today Show on Friday (Sept. 8). She also dropped the luxe video for the soul pop nugget "So Soft" on Thursday, in which she models a series of fashionable outfits in exotic locations as she belts out the song's instantly catchy chorus.
