Hearts are beating a bit faster since the release of Carrie Underwood's newest track.
The 32-year-old former American Idol contestant debuted her latest single, "Heartbeat," fresh off her unreleased upcoming album Storyteller. In this new track released Friday, the new mom slows it down for a romantic ballad about driving away with the one you love for a private dance to "the rhythm of your heartbeat."
Written by Underwood, Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley, the second song to premiere off the highly-anticipated album is a perfect platform for highlighting the seasoned performer's strong vocals. Backed by a low-key musical accompaniment, her award-winning pipes are on full blast—thankfully! It's a stark contrast from the album's first debut single, "Smoke Break"—a punchy country hit with a rocking beat and sassy tone.
Lyrical phrases off the second song like "Baby, we won't need a song. We'll make a falling star wish" and "One more slow kiss. What are we waiting on?" make it very clear that Underwood's stomach is filled to the brim with butterflies fives years after marrying husband Mike Fisher.
