Kelly Clarkson has new music coming. On Tuesday (April 4), the pop singer revealed the title and release date for the first single off her long-awaited divorce album, Chemistry.
“‘Mine’ out 4/14 pre-save now,” reads the caption of a video she posted to social media. The clip shows Clarkson in the recording studio. The black-and-white snippet offers fans their first taste of the song’s lyrics as she sings “Someone’s gonna show you/ How a heart can be used/ Like you did mine” into the mic a cappella.
A release date for the album has not been shared yet. Chemistry will serve as her first original studio album of non-holiday music since 2017’s Meaning of Life. In the years since, she’s also released her second Christmas record, 2021’s When Christmas Comes Again…, and Kellyoke: a 2022 EP of covers named after her popular segment on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
“I’ve been working on this project for close to three years now. I wasn’t sure I was going to release it, but I am,” she said when announcing the pending album on social media (March 26). “This album is definitely the arc of an entire relationship. That whole relationship shouldn’t be brought down to one thing. There’s the good, the bad and the ugly kind of thing going on. Chemistry can be a really amazing, sexy, cool, fun thing, but it can also be very bad for you. So that’s why I named it Chemistry.”
The songstress said in a September 2022 interview with Variety she had been working on new music in the wake of her separation and subsequent divorce filing from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock in 2020. Chemistry was reportedly inspired by the “emotional journey” she went through during her tumultuous split with Blackstock, with whom she has two young children. She will be doing 10 performances in Las Vegas between July 28 - August 19 in support of the record.
