Kelly Clarkson's Stronger tour doesn't kick off until January, but she's about to release a new live EP in the meantime. Her iTunes Sessions EP, featuring eight new live recordings and an interview with the singer, drops on Dec. 27.

According to a press release, the EP includes new versions of her recent hits, 'Mr. Know It All' and 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You),' as well as many of her greatest hits, including 'Since U Been Gone,' 'Never Again' and 'My Life Would Suck Without You.'

A live recording of the 'Stronger' bonus track 'Why Don't You Try' also makes an appearance, along with the holiday tune 'I'll Be Home for Christmas.' The EP is available now for pre-order.

The Stronger Tour launches on Jan. 13 in Connecticut and will keep the first 'American Idol' champion on the road for at least three months. Additional international concert dates are expected to be announced at a later time.
