What to know about Kelly Clarkson's newest album, Chemistry

Clarkson's amazing 10th studio album, Chemistry, was released on June 23, 2023, with the deluxe version being released in September 2023. In a March 2023 Instagram post, Clarkson explained the though process behind the project's title. 

"It's called Chemistry because I was trying to find a word—also, it might be one of the songs on the album—but I was trying to find a word that really described the whole thing," Clarkson said. "Because I didn't want everyone to think I was just coming out with some, 'I'm angry, I'm sad' [album], just one or two emotions. This album is definitely the arc of an entire relationship. A whole relationship shouldn't be just brought down to one thing. So there's the good, the bad, and the ugly kinda 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. I thought it was the perfect title to describe the entire album."

A month later, she further elaborated on the artistic inspiration of Chemistry. "Having chemistry with someone is an incredible, and overwhelming, feeling," she wrote. "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. We decided to release [the first singles] 'mine' and 'me' at the same time because I didn’t want to release just one song to represent an entire album, or relationship. There are many stages of grief and loss on this album. Each song is a different stage and emotional state."
