Eric Church is giving his fans a preview of one of the new tracks from his forthcoming album, Desperate ManOn Friday (Aug. 3), Church shared a snippet of the song "Some of It;" readers can press play above to listen.

"Some of It," which is Track No. 4 on Desperate Man, find Church getting reflective about the knowledge we acquire throughout our lives: "Some of it, you learn the hard of it / Some of it, you read on a page / Some of it comes from heartbreak / Most of it comes with age / And none of it ever comes easy ..."

"I know I don't probably know what I think I do," Church muses over a calming melody (after humorously noting "A bunch of it, you maybe can't use ..."). "But there's something to some of it."

Members of Church's fan club, the Church Choir, got to hear the preview of "Some of It" a day earlier than the general public, in keeping with Church's commitment to giving them his new music first. When Church released his single "Desperate Man" in July, Church Choir members also got an early listen to it; additionally, paid fan club members will automatically receive Church's new album when it's released.

Desperate Man is due out on Oct. 5.
