Kelly Clarkson exposes the truth with her brassy, fiery “red flag collector.” Opening like a western, complete with a cawing bird and saloon-style piano, the latest album cut sees Clarkson calling out all the bad parts of her ex-husband. “They say the worst parts of someone come out to play when shit goes wrong,” she sings. “So shit must hit the fan with you all day.” Her words sting like thorns, drawing blood. Clarkson is as honest as they come, and “red flag collector” is the sort of anthem you won’t soon forget.
