Songwriter Claude Kelly has claimed that Kelly Clarkson's recently-announced album delay will work in the singer's favour.

Kelly, who wrote Clarkson's hit 'My Life Would Suck Without You', has recently returned to the studio with the American Idol champ to work on her fifth studio LP, which is due out in September.

Explaining the reasons behind the album delay, Kelly told MTV: "I will say that I'd be willing to bet that the reason it was pushed back was not for anything as horrible or earth-shattering as people think - it's probably [just] a better setup.

"They want to make sure that the arena is clean for Kelly Clarkson's return, 'cause when she comes back, she always comes back pretty big."

Talking about the kind of material he worked on with Clarkson while in the studio, he explained: "The songs I did write for her were in true Kelly Clarkson form, singer records that showcase her voice, but also show her edge and her attitude and her personality.

"[It's] always uptempo for me when it comes to Kelly. I like to hear her in kick-butt mode. She has an edge to her voice that you want to hear her sing high and get in your face."

Clarkson debuted new song 'Why Won't You Try' at a recent performance in the US.
