  • This was released as the lead single from Kelly Clarkson's best-of compilation, Greatest Hits -- Chapter 1. Clarkson co-wrote the song with her musical director and long-term friend Jason Halbert, along with producer Eric Olson. She noted that the tune reflects on her prolonged success, a decade after her American Idol win. "To celebrate the strength and longevity that my fans, friends, and family have supported me with I wrote this song 'Catch my Breath' with one of my best friends that has seen me through everything," Clarkson wrote on her website. "This song represents who I've been, what I've felt, and where I'm headed, as not only an artist but as a 30 year old that is now smart enough to know that it's time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today."
  • Previous Clarkson songs that Jason Halbert contributed towards include the My December cut "Be Still," the All I Ever Wanted track, "Cry" "and "Standing In Front Of You" from Stronger.
