Eric Church's "Record Year" is the perfect tune to listen to while working through a broken heart.

Four-time ACM award winner Eric Church just dropped the audio on YouTube for his second single off of his Mr. Misunderstood album, “Record Year.” Co-written by Eric Church and Jeff Hyde, the tune touches upon a heartbroken guy dealing with a difficult breakup by drinking way too much and listening to old records to ease his mind. Listen to the audio below.

“Record Year” Lyrics 

Since you turned the tables on me
I’ve been steady and learnin’ lonely
Keepin’ this turntable spinnin’
Everything from Jones to Jennings
Slowly plannin’ my survival
In a three-foot stack of vinyl
Since you had to walk on outta here
I’ve been havin’ a record year

I bet you thought before you left
I’d just sit in silence by myself
Turn this house into a jail
Dyin’ slow in a livin’ hell
But love’s got a funny way of keepin’ score
And your leavin’ lit up my scoreboard
I usually make it through side A sober
All bets are off when I flip her over
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
I’m havin’ a record year

Quarter notes and Hank’s half time
Are poundin’ on this heart of mine
Song to song, I pass my time
With these speakers on ten
Your good-and-gone keeps me up all night
Along with Songs In The Key Of Life
I’m either gonna get over you
Or I’m gonna blow out my ears
Yeah, you’re out there now
Doin’ God knows how, and I’m stuck here
Havin’ a record year

Your leavin’ left me goin’ crazy
I’m countin’ on a needle to save me
I drop it in the groove
And we go ’round and ’round
And down in a spiral
I guess I really oughta call and thank you
I rediscovered Red Headed Stranger
Got down with old James Brown
And found New Grass Revival
If you find your way back, I owe you a beer
For my record year

Quarter notes and Hank’s half time
Are poundin’ on this heart of mine
Song to song, I pass my time
With these speakers on ten
Your good-and-gone keeps me up all night
Along with Songs In The Key Of Life
I’m either gonna get over you
Or I’m gonna blow out my ears
Yeah, you’re out there now
Doin’ God knows how, but I’m stuck here
Havin’ a record year
Yeah, I’m havin’ a record year
