Here's Kelly Clarkson & John Legend's Tokio Hotel Cover, "Run Run Run"

Kelly Clarkson's Piece by Piece is mere days away, and today she's shared a song with new Oscar-winner John Legend, "Run Run Run." If that title seems familiar, it's because Germany's beloved pop-rockers Tokio Hotel recorded it last year, on Kings of Suburbia, their fifth album. Odd combination, but, hey, we're down for whatever in this fine year known as 2015.

The track starts as a somber Clarkson-plus-Legend's-piano affair before turning into a straight duet. Then the strings swoop in, then the electric guitar, and by the end we're being walloped by a mammoth conclusion. Check it out above, and check out Tokio Hotel's music video for the original "Run Run Run" below.

Clarkson's seventh album is due on Tuesday, March 3. This week, she's shared a new Sia-written tune, "Invincible," and title track "Piece by Piece." Check out the latter, as well as the video for "Heartbeat Song," below.
