Just days after the incredibly sad news that his brother Brandon passed away unexpectedly at the age of 36, Eric Church announced this morning that he has a new album on the way.
The new album will be called Desperate Man and is due Oct 5th and the first single will be the title trackAnd while the single isn’t “officially” released until tomorrow, members of his Church Choir fan club can download it today. The song is a raucous, hard-driving number that reminds us a little of the song “Chattanooga Lucy” from Eric’s last album, and the Rolling Stones’ Sympathy for the Devil. Check out the message Eric posted to Twitter earlier this morning (fast forward to about 1:05).
