Ten years into a superstar career that was launched when she became the first winner of 'American Idol,' Kelly Clarkson is issuing her first hits collection, 'Greatest Hits – Chapter 1,' which features three new songs, including an autobiographical single called 'Catch My Breath.'

The compilation arrives on Nov. 19, while the single drops on Oct. 16. Clarkson posted a note on her website announcing the album and explaining that she co-wrote 'Catchy My Breath' as a retrospective on her professional life:

"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."

Clarkson has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and scored ten Top 10 hits. The track listing for 'Greatest Hits - Chapter 1' has not been released, but the album will almost certainly include her signature smash hits like 'Since U Been Gone,' 'Breakaway,' and 'A Moment Like This.'
