Country music star Eric Church is preparing to release his 'Desperate Man' album this fall! Listen to the title track right here!

In a video message speaking directly to his fans, country music singer-songwriter Eric Church told his loyal Church Choir fan club members: “It’s been a while; I just want to say I have missed you. I have good news…the album is done, and we are back. It’s called Desperate Man and the first single is called ‘Desperate Man.’”

Church continued in his message, “Just like last time – just like Mr. Misunderstood – if you’re in the Church Choir, on October 5th you’re going to get the album,” as the North Carolina native renegotiated his record deal with EMI Nashville leading Desperate Man to include his fans.

“Desperate Man” is the star’s first single off of the project. Co-written by Church alongside Texas musician Ray Wylie Hubbard, the track sees Church again collaborating with producer Jay Joyce. ­­­

Many may recall in 2015, Church stunned industry and fans alike with the surprise release of Mr. Misunderstood, giving it away to his fans first without interviews, hype or promotion. Church Choir members spoke directly to local television on how they received the record, being the first to confirm its existence. Church said then, “Everyone is so focused on your first week. But I am more concerned with week 80 than week one.” Mr. Misunderstood went on to win CMA Awards’ Album of the Year in 2016 and reached RIAA-Platinum certification earlier this year.

Church concludes the video message saying, “I look forward to seeing you on the road… I’m very proud of this album. See you soon.”

“Desperate Man” Lyrics 

I’ve seen the Joshua tree
Got down on my knees
Thru the virgin love of a prayer
Walked thru glass barefooted
Strolled across the Devil’s hot coals
I’ve tried everything I swear

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

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

Hey (hey), what can I say
I’m a desperate man
Oh 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…
