Carrie Underwood revealed plans for her first greatest hits compilation during an appearance on NBC’s Today this morning. She also announced the release of a new single from the collection, “Something in the Water,” which will be available on Monday.
The superstar singer, whose album will be titled Greatest Hits: Decade #1, announced that the retrospective would be released on December 9th, and revealed the sultry black-and-white cover art via Twitter.
Underwood, who also spoke briefly about her recent baby news, described new single “Something in the Water” — which she co-wrote with Chris DeStefano and Brett James — as a “joyous, uplifting song basically about changing your life for the better and waking up and having that a-ha moment and your life being different from that moment forward.”
While the track list has yet to be finalized, Greatest Hits: Decade #1 will showcase some of Underwood’s 18 Number One singles from her four studio albums.
“I can’t believe it’s been a decade since I auditioned for American Idol. Looking back at the songs I’ve released over the years lets me relive my amazing journey. Even better I get to include new music for the fans!” Underwood said in a statement.
Underwood most recently topped the charts with Miranda Lambert on the duet “Somethin’ Bad,” from Lambert’s Platinum album.
