Carrie Underwood is heading into summer with brand new music as she announces her latest album, Denim & Rhinestones, out on June 10. The title track from the project and an accompanying lyric video are available everywhere now.
The new single was penned by Underwood, David Garcia, Josh Kear, and Hillary Lindsey, and co-produced by Garcia and Underwood. Garcia co-wrote Underwood’s hit songs “Love Wins,” “Southbound,” and “Drinking Alone,” while Lindsey and Underwood have collaborated on a string of previous hits, including “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “So Small,” “Last Name,” “Smoke Break,” “Church Bells,” and “Cry Pretty.” Kear co-wrote Underwood’s signature hits, “Before He Cheats” and “Blown Away,” and co-wrote “Two Black Cadillacs” with Underwood and Lindsey.
Underwood co-wrote 11 of the 12 tracks on the project, and worked with more recent co-writers on the album as well, including Michael Hardy and Lydia Vaughan, the latter of whom co-wrote “If I Didn’t Love You,” Underwood’s multi-week No. 1 smash duet with Jason Aldean.
“We cover a lot of ground on this album,” Underwood explains. “We have a lot of songs that have a bit of a ‘throwback’ feel, but they sound super fresh. I grew up listening to so many different kinds of music and that is extremely evident in this body of work. These are musical influences that are all in me and work their way out, and I just decided this time not to get in their way. I think this whole album ended up being a big reflection of me as a person and as an artist.
“After spending over two years with My Gift and My Savior, which were such passion projects and so close to my heart, putting together ‘Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency’ was really the catalyst for this album. I was just ready to have fun and to write songs that make me happy to listen to and happy to sing.”
The album announcement comes on the heels of Underwood’s 8th Grammy win for Best Roots Gospel Album for My Savior at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards where she also performed the first new single from the album, “Ghost Story.”
