Pop-sensation Kelly Clarkson gears up to release her first compilation album “Greatest Hits – Chapter I” in November but is providing fans with a song in celebration of all that has been and what is still to come in her life.

Clarkson, who has been a dominant force in the pop music industry for over a decade, has five studio albums and a numerous streak of  “Top 10” singles under her belt. Clarkson has been delighting fans one album and single at a time. With “Greatest Hits – Chapter I,” fans will have a chance to reflect on all of her musical accomplishments as well as three brand new songs.

The newest single, “Catch My Breath,” was co-written by Clarkson, with her musical director Jason Halbert and Eric Olson. The song, which will be officially released to iTunes Tuesday, follows Clarkson’s regular formula to success. This well-known approach includes a combination of smooth up-tempo composition, lyrics that are easy to follow and a catchy chorus. Add in Clarkson’s resilient vocal range and recognizable radio sound and she has another hit just begging to be released to airwaves.

Clarkson sings about learning and growing through her past ten years and wanting to “C-c-c-c-c-c-catch my breath…” Clarkson sings about letting go of the negatives that have plagued her and just enjoying the rest of her life by seeing the beauty in everything around her.

“No one can hold me back, I ain’t got time for that, catch my breath,” she sings. Just like the song implies, sounds like Clarkson is taking the time out of her hectic schedule to reflect on her life and career in a positive manner. The song is not released, but fans can preview the song via her official website, VEVO and YouTube. With over 20 million albums sold worldwide and dozens of music accolades, I think a chance to “Catch Her Breath” is well deserved for Clarkson.
