Kelly Clarkson’s upcoming album exposes her soul.

Clarkson is finally revealing all the details about her new album, “Chemistry,” after months of teasing it.

For one thing, she finally revealed why she titled her album “Chemistry.”

She explained:

“I was trying to find a word that really described the whole thing. Because I didn’t want everybody to think I was coming out with some, like, ‘I’m angry. I’m sad.’ Just one or two emotions.”

The album will be her first since her divorce from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock in 2022.

And, while she didn’t say it explicitly, it seemed to allude to her relationship with him and the aftermath of their divorce.

“This album is definitely the arc of an entire relationship. A whole relationship shouldn’t just be brought down to one thing…Chemistry can be a really amazing, sexy, cool, fun thing, but it can also be bad for you. So that’s why I named it Chemistry. I thought it was kinda the perfect title.”

The album has already been in the works for three years, dating back to when Clarkson and Blackstock filed for divorce in 2020, and it appears that Clarkson took her time curating and producing an album that will go through all of her experiences.

And, because the album will be about deep emotions, the “Since U Been Gone” singer revealed that they worked on several songs throughout the recording process.

She laughed, saying:

“My producer and I were laughing yesterday because I was like, ‘Remember that time we wrote, like, 25 songs in a week?’ A lot of those are the ones that are on the album.”

She explained:

“I literally wrote most of these almost two years ago. Then I told my label, ‘I can’t talk about this until I’ve gone through it.’ And it’s just taken some time to do that. That’s one of the reasons we’ve done a lot of Christmas stuff the past two years – because I was like, ‘Well, that’s happy!'”

According to reports, Clarkson did not reveal the album’s release date, only that fans should be looking for it because it will be available “really soon.”
