Start counting the days: Kelly Clarkson‘s forthcoming album has an official release date!

Piece By Piece, the original American Idol‘s sixth album, is set to drop March 3, following the Jan. 12 release of her latest single, “Heartbeat Song.”

Piece is Clarkson’s first full-length, non-holiday effort since her 2011 smash Stronger. Since then, she released a singles compilation, Greatest Hits – Chapter One, and a collection of Christmas classics, Wrapped In Red.

Oh, and she was busy in her personal life, too.

The powerhouse vocalist, 32, married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in fall 2013 and became a mom to step-kids Savannah, 13, and Seth, 8, before welcoming daughter River Rose in June.
