[Listen] Eric Church’s New Single “Desperate Man” is Finally Here

-

Eric Church has released his first single since the 2017 release of “Round Here Buzz.”

While sending out a video and an advance copy of the song to his fan club, the Church Choir, for a first listen, Eric is now making the new single, “Desperate Man,” available to the public.

“Hey guys, it’s been a while,” Eric began the video. “I just want to say I’ve missed you. And I have good news”

Good news is right. “Desperate Man,” written by Eric and Ray Wylie Hubbard, is the first taste from his upcoming album of the same name, due out October 5. (His first new album in three years, since 2015’s Mr. Misunderstood). 

The new tune is a different side to Eric as he throws in musical influences harkening back to the 1970s rock n’ roll. Crooning about trying to move on after losing his love, Eric’s raspy vocals take you along for the ride on his desperate journey.

And with backup singers adding in a few boop, boop, boops throughout, the song is fun and light and the perfect Church fare for the summer.

“I’ve seen the Joshua Tree / Got down on my knees / Through the virgin love of a prayer / Walked through glass barefooted / Strolled across the devil’s hot coals / I’ve tried everything, I swear

CHORUS
But hey, hey, what can I say / I’m a desperate man / I said hey, hey, what can I say / I’m just a desperate man

Fortune teller told me / No more last chances / You’ve got no future at all / Woman, I ain’t listening / Black-hearted gypsy / Hang a crucifix to a bedroom wall

CHORUS
hey, hey, what can I say / I’m a desperate man / I said hey, hey, what can I say / I’m just a desperate man

Hey I’m a half-cocked, full-tilt / Scarred hands to the hilt / Don’t push me grown ass man / Yeah flashing light caution / Careful where you cross, son / Till she comes back again,”

CHORUS

hey, hey, what can I say / I’m a desperate man / I said hey, hey, what can I say / I’m just a desperate man

Oh hey, hey, I said hey hey / wow what can I say / I’m a desperate man / oh hey, hey / I said hey, hey, I’m just a desperate man

Grown ass man…”
