Eric Church Releases New Single, ‘The Outsiders’
“The Outsiders,” the first single off the upcoming new studio album from Eric Church, was shipped to radio today and is available now on iTunes and other digital retailers. The song was written by Church and Casey Beathard and produced by Jay Joyce, Church’s longtime producer. The single will officially go for adds on Monday, Oct. 28.
Church teased the news of what’s to come with a video exclusively shared with the Church Choir that has generated a lot of speculation due to its cryptic warning: “On Oct 22 you’ll find out just who we are.”
“The Outsiders” will mark Church’s fourteenth career single and is his first release since the January gold-certified, Top 10 “Like Jesus Does” which Beathard also co-wrote with Monty Criswell.
Church is nominated for two CMA Awards this year: Male Vocalist and Musical Event of the Year (with Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan for “The Only Way I Know”). He is the reigning CMA and ACM Album of the Year Award winner for the Platinum-certified Chief, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and stayed atop the Billboard Country Albums Chart for two weeks. Chief spawned five hit singles, including two No. 1 smashes: the Gold-certified “Drink in My Hand” and Double Platinum-certified “Springsteen.”
