WATCH: Carrie Underwood Haunts An Ex-Boyfriend In Chilling New “Ghost Story” Music Video

Carrie Underwood haunts an ex-boyfriend in the chilling new music video for her latest single, “Ghost Story.”

On Friday afternoon (April 29), Underwood debuted the music video for the chart-climbing tune.

Filmed in Downtown Los Angeles at the famed 1931 Los Angeles Theatre, the visually stunning clip brings to life the haunting story of a past love affair, where one person has moved on and is living her life while the other is haunted by her memory everywhere he turns and in everything he does.

The video, which is a cinematic masterpiece and pays homage to the glamour of Moulin Rouge, even features several nods to Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs,” “Smoke Break,” “Cry Pretty,” “Blown Away,” “Just A Dream,” “Cowboy Casanova,” and more.

The video was directed by Underwood’s longtime collaborator, acclaimed director and photographer, Randee St. Nicholas, who has shot numerous videos with Underwood throughout her career, including “Cry Pretty,” “Drinking Alone,” “Blown Away,” “Smoke Break,” and 2020’s “Hallelujah” with John Legend. St. Nicholas has also captured now-iconic artwork for many of Underwood’s albums such as Blown Away, Storyteller, Cry Pretty, and now, Denim & Rhinestones.

“Randee St. Nicholas has an incredible eye and always knows how to film everything in the most unique and beautiful way,” Underwood shared. ”I am very visually-oriented and from the first time I heard ‘Ghost Story,’ I had a vision for how I wanted to bring this song to life in performance and Randee always takes everything to a whole other artistic level beyond my own imagination.”

“Ghost Story” was released in mid-March and serves as the lead single off Underwood’s forthcoming album, Denim & Rhinestones, releasing on June 10.

The soaring tune takes a new approach to a revenge song.

“Instead of smashing headlights, this scorned lover is letting her ex know that she will continue to haunt him no matter how hard he tries to forget her,” Underwood previously explained of the track, which was co-written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and David Garcia and co-produced by Garcia and Underwood.

“I’m gonna be your ghost story / That keeping you up all night memory / I’ll be haunting you, you’ll be wanting me / I’m gonna be your ghost story,” she sings on the chorus.

The eight-time GRAMMY winner later promises, “You’ll be sitting at home drinking ’bout me / When I’m out with my friends at the bar/ But there ain’t enough whiskey / For you not to miss me / I’ll be waiting at the bottom of the bottle in the dark.”

Arriving on June 10 via UMG Nashville, Denim & Rhinestones will feature 12-tracks, including the project’s lead single “Ghost Story,” as well as the title track and “Crazy Angels.”

The Oklahoma native first performed the track during the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards, and later perform the tune at the 2022 CMT Music Awards, where she offered a soaring performance from the stage of Resort World Theatre, home to her REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency.

Underwood’s Las Vegas Residency continues in May, having opened the new 5,000-capacity, world-class theatre, the first artist to grace the largest and tallest stage in Las Vegas, with sold-out shows in December 2021 and March 2022.
