The news comes several days after Underwood teased that new music was on the way after sharing a photo of herself in the studio.
“So, I did a thing…” she captioned the post.
Underwood discussed new music following her big win at the ACM Awards (for “If I Didn’t Love You” with Jason Aldean) earlier this month when a reporter asked, “when can we expect a new album or tour from you?”
“I mean, I’m always working on something, obviously we can’t spill too many beans right now,” Underwood said. ”My fans know what I mean when I say soon, soon. They actually hate it when I use that word because they’re like ‘what does that mean?’ I’ve been busy… for sure.”
Underwood’s yet-to-be-announced album will serve as the follow-up to 2018’s Cry Pretty. The seven-time GRAMMY winner also released a Christmas album, My Gift, in 2020, and a Gospel album, My Savior, in 2021.
Carrie Underwood is set to return to the Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas for her sought-after Vegas residency, REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency, on March 23.
