Eric Church dropped the lead single/title track from his upcoming album, Desperate Man, which is scheduled be released on Oct. 5.
Co-written by Eric and Ray Wylie Hubbard—who was name-checked in “Mr. Misunderstood”—“Desperate Man” sees Eric again collaborating with producer Jay Joyce.
“It’s been a while,” said Eric in a video message. “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.’”
The new album will be Eric’s first since 2015’s Mr. Misunderstood, which won the CMA Album of the Year in 2016 and spawned the No. 1 hit, “Record Year.”
Listen to “Desperate Man” below, and check out the 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…
