Unwanted time offset in multi track recording

I’m using Audacity 3.4.2 on Windows 11 Home (ASUS laptop) and I am having a problem creating a multi track recording. I have a song split into separate instrumental and vocal tracks. I want to play the existing tracks and record a new stereo track with me singing along with the existing tracks. I can record my track, however, when I play it back there is a half second or so delay such that my vocals are that much later than everything else. How can I correct this, other than cutting a small bit from the start of the new track?
