Carrie Underwood has premiered the music video for her new single “Dirty Laundry.”
“I really connected with [director] Shane’s [C. Drake ] artistic vision for the video,” said Underwood in a statement. “It’s all about emotion and that moment when a woman has finally reached that point, after the heartache, of being done with a relationship.”
“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,” she continued. “It gave us a way to portray one of my songs in a way we’ve never done before.”
“‘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 tells ET from the video set. “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.'”
