James Arthur and Kelly Clarkson Release Duet of ‘From The Jump’

Kelly Clarkson

James Arthur has teamed up with Kelly Clarkson for a heartfelt duet on “From the Jump,” a new version of the track from his album Bitter Sweet Love.

“When I heard Kelly’s vocals on this, my mind was blown. What a great honor to have someone of her caliber feature on one of my favorite songs from this body of work,” Arthur said in a press release.

Clarkson, for her part, commended Arthur’s vocals, saying she “was stoked” when he sent her the song, which she described as having a “singer/songwriter vibe with pop elements of catchiness that I really dig.” “I love singing with artists who inspire me and vocalists I adore,” she said. “That’s my favorite kind of duet partner … The melody is beautiful, and the writing is so great that I was very excited to sing on it with him!”

For Arthur, this collaboration marks a full-circle moment, as he previously covered Clarkson’s song “Stronger” during his time on The X-Factor UK in 2012, where he emerged as the winner. “From the Jump” was originally featured on Arthur’s fifth studio album, released in January, which includes singles like “Homecoming,” “Sleepwalking,” and “Just Us.” The release of the new version coincides with the U.S. leg of his Bitter Sweet Love World Tour, with stops in cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, Philadelphia, and Boston. Here are the North American tour dates:
