Kelly Clarkson Announces Greatest Hits And New Single 'Catch My Breath'
The 'Dark Side' singer has confirmed her first greatest hits compilation for release in November.
Kelly Clarkson has announced a brand new single called 'Catch My Breath' which she will release to celebrate a decade in the music industry, alongside the release of her first ever greatest hits collection.
The 'Mr Know It All' singer began her career as the winner of American Idol back in 2002, and will mark the tenth anniversary of her career with the release of 'Greatest Hits - Chapter One', and has unveiled artwork for the compilation's lead single on Twitter.
"It's been a decade now since I won American Idol," Kelly said, in a statement announcing the release. "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 organisation as a business woman and to be able to create music I'm proud of has been tough but inspiring for me," Kelly explained. "To celebrate the strength of 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."

Kelly went on to explain that the song represents who she is, her personal feelings and where she hopes her career will go next, expelling that it gave her the time to, "be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today".
She added: "Here's to another decade of passion and fun! I hope you like the song… it's coming next week!"
Kelly Clarkson returned with her fifth studio album 'Stronger' earlier this year, which spawned a string of successful singles including 'Mr Know It All', 'Dark Side' and 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)' .
