Eric Church is set to release his new album “Desperate Man” on Friday, and he says he chose that name for the album because during the making of the record there was a point, “where I became desperate to find an album.”
“We were lost in my opinion. I don’t know, I think there was a lot going on there,” he shares. “What’s interesting about ‘Desperate Man’ was when I went into the album making process that song was not written. Like a lot of them on the record, they had not been created yet.”
He notes, “I think that desperation of trying to find what this album is, led itself to that song and led to the title of the album.”
Eric adds that there were a lot of personal things that made making the record hard, including his health issues, as well as the tragedy at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas. “I think there was stuff that I had to process on the early part of making this record. And frankly, it made it difficult early,” he says. “I mean it was tough. It was the toughest record that I’ve made out of all of them.”
