After turning heads with the release of “Stick That In Your Country Song” in late June and “Bad Mother Trucker” in late July, Eric Church is giving fans another taste of what’s to come on his forthcoming new album with the release of “Crazyland.”

“Crazyland / Since you said goodbye / It’s been crazy man / Lunatics, liars and it also rains / Waiting on her leaving to come back again / Here in Crazyland / Talking to yourself is the only plan / Giving up on your last give a damn / Here in Crazyland,” sings Church.

In July, Church told Bobby Bones that “Crazyland” came to him while he was dreaming and he woke up and wrote it down immediately.

“One of the last songs we recorded, this is weird and I feel like you’re getting inside information but, I actually dreamed the chorus of the song, and I woke up and I wrote it down, and then I ended up writing the rest of the song to the chorus,” Church told Bobby Bones. “I guess when you get to a creative point, you get in the groove like that. I was crazy at the time, so, you know.”

“Crazyland” was co-written by Church alongside Luke Laird and Michael Heeney.

Church’s highly-anticipated new album will serve as the follow-up to 2018’s Desperate Man. Earlier this Church revealed that he wrote and recorded 28 songs in 28 days for his next project.
