Kelly Clarkson has dropped her feelgood new single, Favorite Kind of High, from her forthcoming album, ‘Chemistry’.
The follow-up to Mine / Me is a change of pace, laced with slick electric guitars, pulsing electronics and a soaring vocal from the superstar.
Of her latest project, she says: “Having chemistry with someone is an incredible and overwhelming feeling. It’s like you have no choice in the matter. You are just drawn to each other.
“This can be good and bad. This album takes you down every path that chemistry could lead you down.”

Inspired by her 2020 divorce with Brandon Blackstock, the latest LP from the superstar clocks in at 14 tracks and is due June 23.
Alongside the album, Kelly will also launch an intimate 10-night engagement at Las Vegas’ Bakkt Theater (formerly Zappos Theater), beginning July 28.
Having originally been slated to perform a different show, titled ‘Invincible’ in April 2020 – with plans axed due to the Covid-19 pandemic – she’s finally set to return to the stage in Sin City this summer.
“The goal was to make a living doing what I love and I’ve been able to do that and connect with people. That’s incredible. At 19, I was just looking to pay my water bill, I didn’t have anything,” she shared.
“It’s a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck. I don’t know if I ever thought it would be this big. I did not think I would end up having an exclusive little 10-show stint in Las Vegas.”
The venue has been home to residency shows from stars including Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Shania Twain in recent years.
‘Chemistry’ – featuring guest appearances from Steve Martin and Sheila E. – is available to pre-order now.
