Another day, another drop-dead gorgeous Carrie Underwood moment!
The 33-year-old country superstar looks stunning in her new music video for "Dirty Laundry," and only ET has your first look behind the scenes ahead of Wednesday's world premiere!
"The video shoot today is black-and-white and it's about emotion," Underwood says. "It's not following the storyline too much, which is something I really didn't wanna do. It's a little more abstract than that."
"Dirty Laundry" marks Underwood's first collaboration with director Shane C. Drake of Taillight Productions.
"Shane had the idea to include some beautiful animals that represent the parallels between human and animal behavior and instincts, which look great interwoven with visuals of emotional women and men," Underwood said in a press release on Tuesday. "It gave us a way to portray one of my songs in a way we’ve never done before."
On set, Drake could hardly contain his excitement over the project.
"He gets excited, which is really nice," Underwood shared. "I can see him in my peripheral vision getting excited about things, which is great for me because most of the time in front of cameras I'm like, 'Does it look OK? Am I doing this stuff right? Like, what's going on?' And he's just really great letting me know."
"Dirty Laundry" -- written by Nashville hitmakers Zach Crowell,Ashley Gorley and Hillary Lindsey, and produced by Jay Joyce --is Underwood's fourth single from her Storyteller album, hearkening back (thematically, at least) to one of the singer's earliest hits.
"'Dirty Laundry' is about a cheating man -- the girl in the story kind of talks about stringing up his laundry, getting rid of his laundry, that's how she finds out he's been cheating on her," Underwood mused. "That's not a new story, you know, lipstick on your collar kind of story, but it's just done in a such a nonchalant way. It's not too angry, it's not, 'I'm gonna get revenge!' It's not 'Before He Cheats,' it's more like, 'You know what? I'm over it, I don't care, I'm done.'"
"The song itself was just such a cool, laid-back vibe," she added. "I love the line, 'Imma hafta,' instead of going, 'I'm going to have to,' like, that's country. 'Imma hafta hang you out to dry,' that's awesome! And the Ajax line immediately stood out and I remember just thinking, 'That's weird, but in such a cool way.' Weird's the wrong word, it's unique. Different. I just loved the vibe."
"Dirty Laundry" will make its world premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 12, on Entertainment Tonight (check local listings) with the full video available simultaneously on ETonline.com.
