Carrie Underwood’s new single, “Smoke Break” from her upcoming fifth studio album, Storyteller, isn’t typical Carrie or old-school Carrie, but it’s not super progressive either.

“Smoke Break” is an uptempo story song that showcases Carrie’ vocals and her storytelling ability– her favorite aspect of country music– the story. During a Facebook chat with fans, she did say most of her new music sounds more “traditional” and “twangy” than before and you can hear it in “Smoke Break.”

In a press release, Carrie said, “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.”

At times, the track seems familiar because it only sounds like a Miranda Lambert cut. Almost.

She said I don’t drink

But sometimes I need a stiff drink

Sipping from the highball glass

Let the world fade away

She said I don’t smoke

But sometimes I need a need a long drag

I know it might sound bad

But sometimes I need a smoke break

Carrie co-wrote the song with longtime collaborators Hillary Lindsey and Chris DeStefano, who also helped her pen her latest No. 1 single, “Little Toy Guns.”
