For his Heart, &, Soul projects, Eric Church wanted to mix up the recording process when it came to making the albums.
So, he packed up everything from producer Jay Joyce‘s studio — including Jay, songwriters, studio assistants, and musicians, and headed out of Nashville to North Carolina.
Eric says, “I think that by going to North Carolina and by leaving the environment, leaving Jay’s studio environment, leaving my environment, leaving the band’s environment, leaving the songwriter’s environment that we just we made something that was uncomfortable and unique and new. And that’s kind of what – that’s where creativity thrives, at least for this record, God, it was so refreshing. And I think that you sometimes have to kind of shake it up a little bit to find where you’re supposed to go next.”
The Heart album arrives for fans this Friday, April 16th.
& arrives exclusively for Church Choir members (Eric’s fan club) on Tuesday, April 20th. (You can become a member HERE)
