Carrie Underwood fans, rejoice! At last we have new music! On August 20th, Carrie Underwood surprised everyone and released her new single “Smoke Break”. As if this news wasn’t exciting enough, she also announced that her new album Storyteller will be released October 23rd. “Smoke Break” is already taking country radio by storm, and is receiving rave review from fans!
“Smoke Break” was written by Carrie Underwood, Hillary Lindsey, and Chris DeStefano. It’s no surprise that Carrie Underwood sounds amazing on this song, but what’s really special is the lyrical content of this song. In a world where the majority of the stuff on the radio is fluff, this song brings to life that we are all human, and sometimes we just need a break.
She said, ‘I don’t drink, but sometimes I need a stiff drink’ // Sipping from a high, full glass, let the world fade away // She said, ‘I don’t smoke, but sometimes I need a long drag’ // Yeah, I know it might sound bad, but sometimes I need a smoke break
The chorus of the song is a solid, catchy hook that Carrie delivers so effortlessly.
Carrie Underwood said this regarding her take on her newest single, “It’s basically an anthem for every hard-working person. We all wear many hats and are spread thin, so we can all relate to being tired and needing a break. This song is about having that moment to be able to escape from whatever it is that’s stressing you out and have some time for yourself.”
Something that makes Carrie Underwood so special is her ability to relate to her fans. She is considerate of the music that she puts out, and how her fans will be able to relate to her songs. “Smoke Break” is no exception. But let’s be honest, Carrie can do no wrong! We can’t wait to hear even MORE new music from her.
