Kelly Clarkson teases new album and announces residency in Vegas
New album Chemistry comes after her divorce from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.
New music from Kelly Clarkson is coming very soon – as is a new residency in Las Vegas to hear these new songs!
Nearly six years after her last album, Clarkson confirmed over the weekend that a new album, titled Chemistry, is on the way. On Monday, she also announced a 10-show residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Bakkt Theater beginning July 28 — dubbed “Chemistry.”
“It’s called ‘Chemistry’ because I was trying to find a word — it could be one of the songs on the album — that really describes it,” the 40-year-old singer shared of the album title.

The album comes after her divorce from Brandon Blackstock, her husband of seven years, with whom she shares two children. The couple separated in 2020, leading to a tumultuous legal battle before their divorce and custody were finalized in 2021.
“This album is definitely the arc of a whole relationship,” Clarkson added. “An entire relationship shouldn’t be reduced to just one thing. So there’s the good, the bad, and the ugly that’s going on in there.”
As for the album’s release, she only teased, “When I say soon, I mean really soon.”

“I’m so excited for these shows and couldn’t think of a better place to get back on stage than Las Vegas!” said Kelly. “The Vegas crowds are such an amazing collection of people who just want to have a great time, and we’re going to do that!”
“So many of my musical idols have had, and still have, incredible residencies on the Strip, and I’m so excited to create my own!” she added.
