Earlier this year, superstar Eric Church revealed plans for an unprecedented new project. The singer-songwriter will be releasing a triple album, ‘Heart & Soul’ in April. Album #1 is entitled ‘Heart’, album #2 is ‘&’, and ‘Soul’ is the third record. Surprising fans once again before the project’s official release, Church debuted the final instant gratification track off the project, a song entitled “Break It Kind Of Guy.”
The new jam has Church written all over it! Co-written by Church with fellow songwriters Luke Dick and Casey Beathard, the song was born out of pure creativity. According to the singer, “Luke was talking about how refreshing it was and how creative he felt in that setting, and then he said ‘I’m so surprised you would do it this way because normally people are like ‘if it’s not broke’ – and when he said that, I went ‘you break it,” referring to Church’s goal of challenging himself to write and a record each song in just one day. “We’ve got three songwriters in the room so immediately it turned into ‘if it’s not broke, I’m a break it kind of guy.’ It was a neat thing for the song to be born in that moment.”
“Hold up on rollin’ up the streets in this town // I got a bucket full of paint left and a match to burn it down // When it comes to raisin’ hell I’m ‘bout to take you all to school // Ain’t big on all your laws and don’t care about your rules // Yeah, I tell my eagle where to fly // If it’s not broke, I’m a break it kind of guy”
That anecdote is a perfect embodiment of what the song shares. In all ways, Church is not afraid to push the envelope and break molds. In fact, some may say that he is a risktaker and a rule-breaker, but we argue that he is a trendsetter and innovator.
Fans can anticipate more creativity and innovation from Church as we await his three-part record. Proving to be an artist for the fans, the middle project, ‘&’ will only be viable for the Church Choir fanbase. Visitto join!
