Eric Church Turns on ‘Hippie Radio’ in New Song Teaser [LISTEN]
Eric Church is taking a look back at his childhood in his new song "Hippie Radio." The country star share a snippet of the track, another from his upcoming album Desperate Man album, on Friday (Aug. 24); readers can press play above to listen.
The lyrics of "Hippie Radio" recall Church's time spent driving around with his father in the family's Pontiac. "He was a young man, and I was a little fella," Church remembers -- and, together, they made quite a band, singing along to the "hippie radio."
"He couldn't carry a tune ... but he'd sing at the top of his lungs / "Carry on My Wayward Son" on the hippie radio / Songs about the flower babies, the birth of rock 'n' roll," Church sings. "And I was the band and I would stand, and we'd bounce down the road / A boy and his dad in the Pontiac ..."
"Hippie Radio" is the fourth song from Desperate Man that Church has shared. In addition to releasing the project's title track as its first single and unveiling the entirety of the song "Heart Like a Wheel," Church has also teased the songs "Some of It" and "Hangin' Around."
In keeping with Church's commitment to giving his fan club, known as the Church Choir, his new music first, members were able to hear the clip of "Hippie Radio" a day earlier than the general public. Paid fan club members will automatically receive Desperate Man when it's released.
Desperate Man was produced by Jay Joyce. The record is due out on Oct. 5.
