Kelly Clarkson releases ‘favorite kind of high’ from upcoming album chemistry

Kelly Clarkson has shared her summer-ready new single “favorite kind of high” – the latest off her highly anticipated tenth studio album chemistry, dropping June 23rd and available for pre-order now via Atlantic Records.

The song comes alongside a special live video taken from the American Idol OG one-night-only performance of chemistry last month at Los Angeles’ Belasco Theatre, directed/produced by Weiss Eubanks and Jonny Mars .

“favorite kind of high” follows double singles “mine” / “me”, released last month. Meanwhile, “favorite kind of high” (co-penned/produced by long-time collaborator Jesse Shatkin) breathes a refreshing and effervescent energy into the 14-track collection.

Kelly said in a press statement about her upcoming album: “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.”
