Carrie Underwood’s cryptic new Instagram post reveals that something is coming this Friday (March 18). The “The Champion” artist only captioned her new social media post with an emoji of a pair of eyes, along with a 5-second sound bite. The announcement on Monday morning (March 14) comes shortly after Underwood dropped a few subtle hints that new music is on the way.
Last week, Underwood posted a photo showing her singing in a studio, only telling fans “So, I did a thing…” The post came only a few days after Underwood seemed to indicate to media outlets at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards that she has new music on the way. When asked whether fans can expect a new album and tour from her this year, Underwood said: “I mean, I’m always working on something. Obviously we can’t spill too many beans right now, but my fans know what I mean when I say ‘soon.’ Soon. They actually hate it when I use that word because they’re like, ‘what does that mean?!’ But (I’ve) been busy, for sure.”

Aside from a few singles and collaborations (including “Stretchy Pants” and “Only Us,” a duet with Dan + Shay for the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack), Underwood released her holiday album, My Gift, in 2020 with a special edition in 2021, and My Savior, her debut gospel album last year. Underwood’s last country album was Cry Pretty, which she unveiled in 2018.
