Carly Pearce is officially back in the studio! The singer confirmed that she is back working on new music by posting a studio selfie on Instagram this week.

“Pouring my heart into these new songs. Can’t wait to share with you,” she wrote along with the photo.

The news that Pearce is back in the studio comes just five months after the release of her self-titled, sophomore album. In an interview with Sounds Like Nashville last month, Pearce revealed that her next single won’t be from her latest album.

“My next single will be completely new music ,not off of that album [and] with completely new people,” she said. “I don’t know what it is. All I can tell is I have so much peace and excitement.”

While fans will have to keep guessing about what the new single will entail, Pearce did share some insight into the musical vibe she’s going for with the new music. Since seeing the success of her latest No. 1 song, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which has a traditional country feeling, she plans to keep that classic-leaning country inspiration going.

“I will tell you this: ‘I Hope You’re Happy Now’ solidified for me and I think re-reminded people that I want to be the modern country artist with the throwback, kind of vintage-y thing that is progressive, and I’m going to lean hard into it,” she said.

In addition to working on new music, Pearce has been through some personal changes lately, having filed for divorce from her husband and fellow singer, Michael Ray, in June. She has been active on social media since the news broke, introducing her new puppy named June and getting together with friends. She also alluded to how she’s been doing on an episode of Lindsay Ell’s YouTube show, Living wELL.

“I’m getting better,” she told Ell. “I will say that I am grateful for quarantine. You know how fast our lives are; you know how easy it is to kind of tap into who we are as artists and kind of ignore our actual hearts and our actual lives and things like that. Quarantine has been good to me.”
