Carrie Underwood is (WE HEAR) working hard on a new record, and it will be Underwood’s first studio album since her 2012 platinum-selling Blown Away record — will show ‘another side’ of her.   “There’s definitely a different sound that’s coming together,” Underwood was quoted as saying to Country Countdown USA. “I want everything to have its own space and look different, sound different, feel different. So I’ve been working with another producer, as well as with Mark Bright, who I’m always gonna love, but getting things a little different, and it’s been fun.”  (hmmm, says Wes)

“I feel things have a different sort of twang to them, kind of a rock twang,” she adds. “So there should be some things that [fans] hopefully have liked about the music we’ve done, but also a little growth, a little bit of shift, so still things they’ve liked but new things to see, hear and feel.” Carrie says they have made a lot of progress–but no release date was given.

“We’re off to more than a great start, we’ve been recording, I’ve been in the studio, I’ve laid vocals down, background vocals—there’s still a few steps to go, but it shouldn’t be too long.”

Since her last album was released (2012) Ms Carrie has had quite a few changes in her life… including giving birth to her first child, Isaiah Michael Fisher, who was born in February. Being a mother has influenced her in every way, she says, including her music.
Let’s hope that all this “change” is a good thing– and doesn’t change her sound too too much– we all know and love her music already. Fingers crossed.   Carries says “It’s impossible to not let your life affect things, There’s one song that will probably make it on the album that’s about my husband and our baby; it’s really sweet, and I’m happy to have that life magic happening in the room, and he’ll be able to look back at it and say, ‘That’s about me!’”

Underwood has a few concerts on her schedule this summer. A list of all of her shows can be found on her website.  Hoping all good things for her and her family–and for us fans as well.
