Carrie Underwood‘s Storyteller will be released on October 23rd, and with two weeks until the tracks become public, fans of the spectacular superstar woke up to quite a surprise. Yesterday, iTunes delivered a new song, “Heartbeat“, to fans who pre-ordered the anticipated album (which also houses “Smoke Break“), making the next thirteen days even more torturous for those awaiting the full record.
“Heartbeat” is a slow-tempo, romantic tune that proves the hit singer-songwriter still flutters at the sight of her husband of five years, Mike Fisher. Penned by Carrie, Zach Crowell, and Ashley Gorley, the track that is a distinct departure from its released predecessor, “Smoke Break”, will make your heart beat a little faster, as you hear about the love Carrie has for her husband.
What might especially be of interest to Sam Hunt fans is that Sam provides background vocals on the track which was co-written by Montevallo co-producer, Zach Crowell. Sam’s voice perfectly complements Carrie on “Heartbeat”, providing a soft undertone and obvious presence without distracting from the leading powerhouse.
