Our little Kelly Clarkson is growing up. Not only did she turn 30 in April, but she also recently celebrated the 10th year anniversary of her American Idol win. To commemorate all her accomplishments, the singer is releasing her first greatest hits album titled, Greatest Hits — Chapter 1, due to hit stores on November 16. She debuted her new track on the Ryan Seacrest show earlier today. She truly is still “Miss Independent” after all these years.
“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,” Kelly wrote on her website. “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.”
With her hectic touring schedule, I don’t know how Clarkson found the time to record a new track. Thankfully for us, she did and decided to relax and ‘catch her breath’. Written by Kelly along with longtime friend Jason Halbert and Eric Olson, “Catch My Breath” is classic Kelly Clarkson, but far less angry then most of her breakup anthems. Her smoky vocals are pure perfection on the lighthearted and airy track. Check it out below.
