When Carrie Underwood announced the release date for her upcoming sixth studio album, Cry Pretty, it sent fans around the world into a frenzy. Her first new album in three years was finally arriving. But fans would have to wait until Sept. 14 to get their hands on it.
However, Carrie is keeping their appetites wet by teasing a behind the scenes look into the album, which she co-produced with David Garcia. Carrie takes fans through the process as well as her thoughts on co-producing.
“Sometimes you get together and write a song that is exactly how you’re feeling at the moment and that was ‘Cry Pretty’ for me,” Carrie said int he trailer. “I think ‘Cry Pretty’ sets the tone for the rest of the album because it’s emotional and it is real, but there’s also just some incredible musical moments in the song and I feel like those things are things that go throughout the rest of the album.”
What can fans expect from Carrie’s latest offering?
“We have a lot of songs on there that are definitely emotional and kind of soulful and real and raw,” Carrie adds. “There’s so much love and care and heart that has gone into writing these songs, putting music to these songs. Everything has been done in such a careful and loving way.”
Carrie debuted the title track of the album during a powerful performance at the 2018 ACM Awards and is set to release her sixth studio album on Sept. 14.
