A fierce feminist drama that draws inspiration from the women’s liberation movement of the 1970s, Alicia Silvertone’s American Woman needed an equally feisty performer to lay down vocals for its titular theme song. So, Paramount Network found the appropriate powerhouse to do just that in the form of Kelly Clarkson, and EW has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Grammy winner’s recording process.
The clip opens as Clarkson belts a verse from the classic rock song, originally recorded by The Guess Who in 1969. She then discusses her approach to the reimagined song, which is set to play atop the new series’ opening credits.
American Woman premieres June 7 at 10 p.m. ET on Paramount Network.
