Eric Church – Record Year Review
Some people like to surprise other people, but sometimes they like to surprise their entire fan base and followers alike. How? Well somebody ask Eric Church that! Yes we all have been words and mouth about the artist, who has been famous for creating a stir among the crowds. Arriving with his new single “Record Year”. A Sad love song, over some strong and expressing lyrics.
On the day of CMA awards, Eric church announced the release of his album Mr Understood. Much to everyone’s amazement, nobody expected it at all. “Record Year”.is just another one of his unplanned ‘drop the bomb’ singles that come out as unexpectedly as a tornado warning.
Released on February 16, 2016. The single is the second from his fifth studio album Mr Understood. Under EMI Nashville. Even though the album was a rushed product, “Record Year” has come out as a jewel among the many from his collection. The country fans out there have accepted Record Year with open hands.
Reaching to No.6 on the US country airplay chart and No.9 on the US Hot Country, truly goes on to say how quickly the Eric church has made an impression of himself with his music. The single peaked at no.59 on US Billboard Hot 100.
The song follows about a guy experiencing a break up in a classic fashion. His lyrics clear “I bet you thought before you left. I’d just sit in silence by myself. Turn this house into a jail. Dyin’ slow in a livin’ hell” Resorting to music as his escape.
Record Year feels fresh and enlightening to the listener, enough to be hummed along. The usage of guitars perfectly complements the mood of the track, which surely transfers through to the listener and somewhat makes it a memorable tune. The track is well composed and structured to great solidity, coming on strong in the chorus.
Country music is seeing the influence of electronic inspired flairs added to traditional country. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but takes us away from our original genre.
A video was released on YouTube in April 2016, directed by Reid Long and John Peets.
