Eric Church isn’t just releasing one album in April. He isn’t just releasing two albums. He’s releasing three!
The country singer announced his new albums via social media on Thursday (Jan. 21). Church opened a video post saying, “Hey, Church Choir, I have three albums coming out in April. They came out of my 28 days in the mountains of North Carolina where the songs were recorded and written.”
Also, Eric Church goes on to share that the three-album collection is entitled “Heart & Soul.”
While the “Heart” album and the “Soul” album will be available to everyone, Church says the middle album, “&,” was made exclusively for Church Choir members. Only this group will have access to the “&” album. The Church Choir is the singer’s fan club.
Also, according to Church, “white vinyl versions” of the albums will also be available. The singer also talks to his fans about the past year and his hopes for the future in the social media video.
“It’s been a long 10 months,” he says. “With the power of music and the love for each other, we will get through this. We will gather again soon.”
He also shares his excitement at the possibility of performing in front of his fans again.
“I cannot wait to play this music for you live,” Church says. “It is the very best we’ve ever made. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the records.”
