As another week flies by, Eric Church uploads a new morsel of a track from his upcoming album Desperate Man. This 40-second clip marks the 7th song he’s teased on social media or released in full, leaving fans to count down the days until Oct. 5 when the entire album becomes available.
“…Appalachia moonshine crazy / bible belt and a sinner’s fire / whoa whoa whoa whoa.. on a higher wire,” Church sings on the new tune. The Southern gospel-infused track combines Church’s relaxed vocals with a bluesy guitar. The dizzying “whoas” Church sings creates a psych-rock vibe that leads to the declaration of the song’s title, “Higher Wire.”
Following up his Rolling Stone cover, Church also appears on the front of the Sept/Oct issue of American Songwriter magazine. Grab a physical copy from a bookstore or purchase a digital download online to read his feature interview.
