Carrie Underwood is full of surprises… The powerhouse country artist revealed the Denim & Rhinestones track list and released the title track on Friday morning (April 8). She explained that her highly-anticipated new album is one that will “cover a lot of ground.”
“We have a lot of songs that could be kind of considered ‘throwback’ type songs, but they sound so super fresh,” Underwood explained in a trailer for her 12-track album. “These are just influences that are in me and work their way out, and I just decided this time not to get in my way. I feel like this one ended up being a bigger reflection of me as a person, as an artist. I grew up listening to so many different kinds of music. I feel like that is extremely evident in this body of work.
“We weren’t trying to do anything,” she added. “We just wanted to go in and see what happened. I really just wanted to make an album that just felt like fun.” Watch the trailer here:
Underwood already released “Ghost Story” after a few weeks of teasing fans that she’d “been busy, for sure.” The haunting first taste of Denim & Rhinestones is one that serves as “a really powerful revenge song… But this time instead of smashing his headlights with a baseball bat, she’s just going to haunt his every waking moment. She’s not just the one that got away, but she’s the one that he cannot forget.”
Now, “Denim & Rhinestones” is giving fans an “80’s vibe,” and they’re loving it. “Here’s a sneak peek at the track list from my new album Denim & Rhinestones! Pre-order now to get two songs instantly,” Underwood captioned her post. See the full track list here:
