Carrie Underwood Reveals Track Listing for ‘Storyteller’
The singer spent Wednesday night (Sept. 9) sharing song titles on her Instagram account (see an example above), before revealing the complete track listing in a press release.
“There are some things on there that are definitely familiar, but there’s a lot of growth that has happened, as well,” Underwood says of the new set of tunes. “It’s going to sound a little bit different — still the things that fans will obviously know is me. I’m not going crazy or anything, but it’s a little bit of a shift.”
Storyteller is Underwood's first project since welcoming baby Isaiah into the world in February, and the singer admits that her love for her son inspired one of the new tunes.
“It’s really sweet, and I’m happy to have that life magic happening in the room," Underwood says, "and he’ll be able to look back at it and say, ‘That’s about me!’”
The record's debut single, "Smoke Break," which was written by Underwood, along with Chris DeStefano and Hillary Lindsey, is already in the Top 5.
“The song itself is one of those story songs I feel like everybody can relate to, about how life is so hectic,” Underwood explains. “And it’s so nice when — if and when — you actually get to step away for a second. We all need that, and we all need that time to ourselves and to get to take a break.”
Jay Joyce produced six of Storyteller's tracks, including "Smoke Break," with longtime producer Mark Bright producing five tracks and Zach Crowell producing two.
Storyteller is currrently available for pre-order on Amazon.
