NASHVILLE, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Singer Carrie Underwood released a new single, "Smoke Break," Thursday, announcing on Facebook it will appear on a new studio album entitled Storyteller.
Accompanying the news was the cover art for the single, featuring the 32-year-old country singer hanging back with a black corset and a drink.
Country radio stations around the world have already received the single, which Underwood refers to as "an anthem for every hard-working person."
"We were writing and kept taking breaks to go outside because we were getting a little stuck on a song we were already on," Underwood answered on a Facebook Q&A. "It was so beautiful outside that we had a hard time focusing, so we decided to write a song about taking breaks! 'Smoke Break' seemed like a great title, so we ran with it!"
When asked about her upcoming fifth studio album, Underwood remarked about her writing process and how the title relates to her style.
"I feel like a lot of the songs that I wrote and gravitated to ended up being more traditional and 'twangy' than anything I have ever done before," she added about Storyteller. "I just went with it! I love the story telling aspect of country music...it's one of the reasons I always wanted to be a part of it."
Storyteller is set to be released on Oct. 23 while "Smoke Break" is available on iTunes now.
