Eric Church’s long-awaited new single, “Stick That In Your Country Song,” will be released this Thursday (June 25) with a premiere at country radio.
Officially hitting country radio on June 29, “Stick That In Your Country Song” is the lead single from Church’s highly-anticipated forthcoming album.
The superstar teased the new release with members of his fan club, The Church Choir, last week, telling fans “A new single is about to hit country radio and it’s going to be the tip of the spear for what’s coming after and it’s a BIG spear. I believe it’s the best we’ve ever been in our career. Don’t have a reason for that, creativity took over. I’m as proud of this music, that’ll involve different forms, that I’ve ever been.”
Earlier this year, Church opened up about his new music, revealing that he wrote and recorded 28 songs in 28 days for his next project.
“I’d write a song in the morning, we’d cut it that night,” he explained. “We removed all the barriers. Chase that as hard as you can [and] move on. For me, it’s as far out there as I have gotten.”
Though he admits it was “kind of like The Shining,” he believes the end result was worth it.
“Looking back at what came out of it, everyone needed to be uncomfortable,” he acknowledged. “The writers had no clue what they were in for. All that is what made it great.”
Church’s new music follows his 2018 album, Desperate Man.
