Rob’s Off the Trail Tracks: Eric Church, ‘Devil, Devil (Prelude: Prince of Darkness)’
Here’s your weekly Off the Trail Track, a song from a popular album you probably won’t hear on the radio. This week we feature a track from a brand spanking new album from one of my favorite artists: Eric Church.
Released just this week, Church’s fourth studio album ‘The Outsiders’ is awesome. I love it. It’s really unique, like nothing else you’ll hear right now, and keeps a great pace throughout. There was a lot of hype leading up to this album, and is currently the top selling country album on Amazon and iTunes.
Our Off the Trail Track ‘Devil, Devil (Prelude: Prince of Darkness)’ is REALLY off the trail. There’s no way this will be played on the radio. It over eight minutes long, and the first three and a half minutes are a speech Church wrote about Nashville, with some interesting lines like “The devil walks among us, and Nashville is his bride.” After that, it kicks up and the beat gets going. It’s pretty different, but I like it. Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
