"Eric said let's write about a desperate man", he wrote.

During a livestream on Thursday morning (July 12), Church revealed his new music news. Rolling Stone reports that the song is "a Southern rock anthem;" lyrics include "But, hey, what can I say?" Misunderstood spawning multiple singles including the title track, "Record Year", "Kill a Word" and "Round Here Buzz". Church and Hubbard have played together before, like the time in 2017 when Church brought Hubbard onstage for a guest appearance at one of his Dallas shows.
