It feels like Christmas.
Three years after his last album, Mr. Misunderstood, Eric Church is back. On Thursday he announced his new album, Desperate Man, is due out October 5th, and he also released his new single, the title track.
The single is momentous. It’s old school rock, a little “Chattanooga Lucy,” lyrically sharp, edgy, and the exact reason Church is in a league of his own when it comes to mainstream country.
Co-written with Texas great Ray Wylie Hubbard, it’s everything you want in a lead single. Welcome back, Chief. We missed ya.
