Carrie Underwood has BIG news! After teasing fans that she would be making a huge announcement on Aug. 20, the country superstar finally let the cat out of the bag — she’s releasing a new album in October and a new song TONIGHT!
We’re so excited! Carrie Underwood, 32, revealed that she has new music on the way! And to better connect with her fans after an incredibly busy year, the singer also opened up in a Q&A session on Facebook to answer some burning questions!
Yep, it’s true — there’s new music from Carrie on the way! In a video on Facebook, the hot mama revealed her single “Smoke Break” will be released TONIGHT, Aug. 20, and it will be on her upcoming album Storyteller, which drops on Fri., Oct. 23. OMG, that’s so soon!
“I want to tell you guys that I have new music!” she gushed in the video. “I have a new song and it’s called “Smoke Break” and I’m so excited for you guys to hear it. The song itself is just one of those story songs that I just kind of felt everybody could relate to about how life is so hectic and it’s so nice when, if and when, you actually get to step away for a second and we all need that. We all need that time for ourselves to take a break. I really hope that you guys love it because I’m so excited about it. It’s from my upcoming album called Storyteller which I really, really, really can’t wait for you guys to hear, and that’s coming soon enough, and by soon enough I mean Friday, October 23, The single “Smoke Break” is being released to country radio right now and it will be available digitally tonight!”
Carrie’s last album of completely new songs was back in 2012, when she released Blown Away. She put out a Greatest Hits record at the end of 2014, which included two new songs, “Something in the Water” and “Little Toy Guns,” both of which climbed up the country charts to Nos. 1 and 6, respectively. So don’t be surprised if “Smoke Break” spreads FAST!
We’re especially excited to hear Carrie is really getting back to work because she (understandably) took a lot of time off throughout the last year (her own little “Smoke Break,” if you will!) On Labor Day in 2014, the 32-year-old announced she and her husband, Mike Fisher, were expecting their first child. She kept busy for a few months, but after her Greatest Hits album was released in December, Carrie stepped away from the spotlight to prepare to give birth — the couple’s son, Isaiah, was born on Feb. 27.
The “Little Toy Guns” singer didn’t make her first official appearance until almost four months later, when she showed off her AMAZING post-baby body at the CMT Awards. Since then, she’s done a bit of touring, but it looks like she’s really ready to throw herself back into things now that everything at home is settled.
After making her big announcement, Carrie stuck around on Facebook to chat with her fans. Keep your eyes peeled right here — we’ll be updating with anything juicy she shares!
