Carrie Underwood also unveiled the album’s cover. She strikes up a sultry pose in a denim bustier dress. It features straps of multi-colored denim with buckles. Carrie finishes off her look with a denim jacket that features silver fringe on the sleeves. She also talked about what fans can expect from her new album.
“I feel like people are going to hear everything and [get] some warm fuzzies and hopefully it’ll just make people happy to listen to,” Carrie Underwood said, per People. “It’s a very ‘sing into your hairbrush, in your house, in your room’ kind of album.”
It’s the follow-up to her 2021 release, My Savior, and her 2018 release, Cry Pretty. She is making her big return to country music after taking a break from the music genre. Carrie was all about gospel and Christmas music for the past few years. She even explored other genres and musical styles.
American Idol alum experiments with a new sound
Carrie Underwood is feeling inspired this time around. Allowing her to explore other genres has allowed her to experiment with a different sound on this new album. She released the album’s first single last month. The track is about a woman who haunts their ex forever.
“It just didn’t sound like anything else that’s on the radio right now,” Carrie Underwood said on Today’s Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen in March. “And I feel like it was a great first choice first single, because I feel like it’s enough of hopefully what people like about me. There’s some drama. It’s a cinematic song. It’s a great story song.”
She called the process of making the album “a lot of fun” and said she wrote a lot of songs on it. Despite her feelings about this new album, Carrie previously called My Savior “the greatest project” she’s ever worked on. In December 2021, Carrie kicked off her Las Vegas residency at Resorts World.
