After 12 Billboard Music Awards, five albums, two Grammys, and the winning spot on the first season of American Idol, Kelly Clarkson is set to release her first greatest hits album. Ten years after being catapulted into the spotlight by Simon Cowell and his reality singing show, Clarkson is releasing Greatest Hits – Chapter 1 on November 19.
In a post on her website about the new album, Clarkson also talked about the pressure of entering the music business at such a young age, saying “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.”
In addition to including some of her biggest hits, Clarkson is also releasing a new track on the album, titled Catch My Breath. Dedicating the new song to her family, friends and fans that have supported the Texas singer over the course of her career, Kelly said “The 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.”
