The 'American Idol' graduate has announced that her highly-anticipated fifth album will not be released until September and said she feels sorry for the wait.
Kelly Clarkson has issued an apology to her fans after announcing her highly-anticipated next album won't be out until September. The "Since U Been Gone" hitmaker has been busy working on her fifth studio album, the follow-up to 2009's "All I Ever Wanted", and finished the songs in December 2010.
But Clarkson's fans will have to wait a little longer to hear her new material after label bosses at RCA Records told the singer September would be the best month to launch the record. In a post on her Facebook page, she writes, "I recently found out that my album won't be coming out until September... the album has been recorded but I can't release it until then."
"I realize that is a long time but that's the best time to release it apparently so I'm sorry for the wait but I promise you it sounds great!"
