Eric Church Reveals 'The Outsiders' Album Art, Release Date
Eric Church has set a date for The Outsiders.
The country star's fourth studio album will hit shelves on Feb. 11, 2014, with preorders beginning on Nov. 6 at EricChurch.com. On Tuesday, Church also revealed the album art for his new release, featuring bandmembers (from left to right) Jeff Cease, Driver Williams, Craig Wright and Lee Hendricks in an ominous-looking warehouse.
The Outsiders is the follow-up to Church's CMA and ACM Album of the Year winner, Chief, which has sold more than 1.5 million copies and spawned two No. 1 singles, "Drink in My Hand" and "Springsteen."
In an interview with the Associated Press, Church said that he was "interested" to see the fans' response to the new material.
"I always say the songs are mine till the moment we release them, then they're the fans' [songs]," he said. "I'm very anxious. I have a lot of anxiety to see what people think about what we've done."
In the meantime, Church is set to perform the album's lead single and title track on Wednesday at the 47th annual Country Music Awards, which will be broadcast live on ABC.
