Kelly Clarkson has released a new single off of her upcoming "Greatest Hits – Chapter 1" album, and the track is everything fans have come to expect from the singer.

"Catch My Breath" is Clarkson at her best: catchy, empowering, and about to be added to multiple Spotify playlists, including but not limited to "Feel Good," "Getting Ready," and "Breakup."

The independence-focused "Catch My Breath" is a Clarkson classic with an uptempo beat and rising melody. She croons, "Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of this show / Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told what's supposed to be right."

In a note to her fans on her website, Clarkson wrote, "To celebrate the strength and longevity that my fans, friends, and family have supported me with I wrote this song 'Catch my Breath' with one of my best friends that has seen me through everything. 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."

The greatest hits album will be released November 19.
