The singer will release 'Dark Side' as the third cut to be lifted from her recent album Stronger, which was released last October.
Clarkson revealed that she is currently planning the accompanying music video and that the visual will surprise her fans.
She told MTV: "I always like to come up with, sometimes just a concept of visually what I'd like to see and then let the directors run with it because they're so creative and they usually have great ideas.
"I think it's always better when more people are involved and you have all these ideas flowing. I'm excited. It's going to be different to what you probably think."
'Dark Side' follows Clarkson's recent single 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)', which topped the US Hot 100 and reached number eight in the UK.
