Eric Church warned fans that “something big is coming” last week and he wasn’t kidding.

Less than a week after he unveiled a teaser video to his fan club, the Church Choir, he followed through on his promise. It turns out the “big” thing coming is his new single “The Outsiders,” which is now available on iTunes.

A gritty four-minute track that showcases Church’s gruff vocals and plenty of guitar riffing, it’s just a hint of what’s to come off Church’s next album.

“They’re the in crowd with the other ones/ It’s a different kind of cloth that we’re cut from/ We let our colors show where the numbers ain’t/ Where their paint where there ain’t supposed to be paint,” Eric Church sings at the track’s start.

The track begins slowly but a minute in it picks up speed as Church asserts, “That’s who we are, that’s how we roll.” As a chorus sings “woah-oh-oh” it’s easy to picture the song being performed in a live setting.

In an interview with Radio.com at Lollapalooza, Church promised a change-up on his next album.

“It’s different,” he said with a giant grin. “And I don’t know how people are going to judge it, that’s up to the people to decide, but no, it’s different.”
