• Eric Church Shares Video for “Record Year”

    Eric Church recently released his video for “Record Year,” the dynamic second single from Church’s surprise studio LP, Mr. Misunderstood. Church has been notably quiet about the album, staying clear of press and letting the music and the image on the front do the talking. With “Record Year,” Church keeps the visual consistent – it’s a boy stacking vinyl, it’s that dark chalkboard. Even when Church is visible, he’s mostly a blurred fore- or background, the camera focusing instead on his band. The song discusses turning to music as emotional salvation, and Church seems to be perfectly comfortable behind his signature shades, letting the music serve just that function without his intrusion.
