Issues with trying to record the second track

Hi, a new one here

Before I could easily record a second track while listening the first one so that I can sync them but I can’t seem to do that anymore.

When I push record while the second track is clearly highlighted the recording starts from the end of the first track. When I press home it seems to work but the recording still starts from the end of the first track.

I have vocals on the first track and trying to record a guitar track on the second. Really frustrating since I worked on the vocal track almost an hour just to find out that I can’t record the second track.

I have the newest version of Audacity

Any help would be appreciated.

To record to a new track:
Shift + Record
Shift + R
