(New York, New York) – Global superstar Kelly Clarkson is set to release Greatest Hits – Chapter 1 on November 19th. This greatest hits compilation will feature three new tracks from Clarkson as well as a compilation of some of her greatest hits to date.
Kelly’s new single, “Catch My Breath” is set to impact radio on October 22nd and will be available for sale at all digital providers on October 15th. “Catch My Breath” is co-written by Clarkson, Jason Halbert and Eric Olson. Earlier this morning, Kelly posted a note to her fans on her Official Website expressing what this album and new single means to her. She states, "It's been a decade now since I won American Idol. Sometimes it feels longer because although it has been exciting that was a lot of pressure to have as a 19 year old girl. To own a company, lead an organization as a business woman, and be able to create music I'm proud of has been tough but inspiring for me. To celebrate the strength and longevity that my fans, friends, and family have supported me with I wrote this song "Catch my Breath" with one of my best friends that has seen me through everything. This song represents who I've been, what I've felt, and where I'm headed as not only an artist but as a 30 year old that is now smart enough to know that it's time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today. The song will be part of my first ever greatest hits coming in November. Thank you everyone that has been a part of my career and life. Here's to another decade of passion and fun! I hope you like the song…its coming next week!"
