In a RCA press release, ‘American Idol’ season one champ Kelly Clarkson previewed songs from her sophomore album ‘Breakaway’, due out November 30th. She said of the first single ‘Since U Been Gone’: “I went to Max Martin’s studio in Sweden. We recorded it there with Max and the co-writer of the song, Lukasz Gottwald. The first time I heard the song I thought it was a little poppy, so I asked if we could rock the track a little. We put some heavier guitars and harder drums on it. Now it’s explosive.”
