Stadium pop lass Kelly Clarkson prepares a Greatest Hits collection with three new songs.

Clarkson is being ambitious with this one – it’s title Greatest Hits – Chapter 1. She wrote on her website, “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, she’s going to release new song ‘Catch My Breath’ on October 17, which will also appear on the album.

She wrote of the song, “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.”

While there’s no tracklist for Greatest Hits – Chapter 1 just yet, the songs will be culled from her five albums, including last year’s Stronger, which has sold platinum, gone top ten, and housed two top ten hits ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ and ‘Mr. Know It All’.

Greatest Hits – Chapter 1 will be released on November 16.
