GRAMMY-winning global superstar Kelly Clarkson has premiered “red flag collector” – the latest off her highly anticipated tenth studio album chemistry, arriving June 23rd and available for pre-order now via Atlantic Records. Produced by long-time collaborator Jason Halbert, the song arrives alongside a special live video taken from Clarkson’s one-night-only performance of chemistry last month at Los Angeles’ Belasco Theatre, directed/produced by Weiss Eubanks and Jonny Mars.
“red flag collector” marks the fourth release from the 14-track collection, following last week’s Steve Martin-assisted “i hate love”, upbeat summer-ready single “favorite kind of high” and double singles “mine” / “me”. Released to fan and critical acclaim alike, Clarkson has been praised for the songs’ “depth of feeling and immaculate, soaring vocals” by The New York Times, as the variety of tracks continue to showcase the lyrical complexity featured on the project three years in the making.
Kelly says,“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.”
chemistry will arrive ahead of an exclusive Las Vegas engagement, chemistry…an intimate night with Kelly Clarkson, opening Friday, July 28, 2023 at Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Designed exclusively for the Bakkt Theater stage, Clarkson and her longtime band will immerse fans in an intimate music experience that spans her two-decade long catalog of award-winning hits. Clarkson will also perform as part of the TODAY Show’s 2023 Citi Summer Concert Series, due to air later this summer on NBC.
