Eric Church Releases Follow-Up Video to ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’
Eric Church has released another video in support of his new album, 'The Outsiders.'
Following the release of the video for his debut single and title track of the album, the singer said that the videos would follow a story line, and that proves true with the new clip.
Unlike the videos for 'The Outsiders' and the follow-up single, 'Give Me Back My Hometown,' the latest video, called 'San Destino Rising: Movimiento De Una,' doesn't coincide with a song from the record. But the almost six-minute video does tell a powerful story, which once again leaves more questions than answers.
The video begins with a date of January 10, 2014 at the somber, graveside funeral that occurred in Church's previous video. As the service is proceeding, the video cuts to a heated exchange that happens in a garage, with a time stamp of January 4, 2014. In the garage, an attractive, older well-dressed woman warns a man he has "five days to get what I want," and that he has to "do it my way."
It then cuts to December 21, 2012, with a young blond woman -- also seen at the funeral -- entering a seedy bar, obviously in distress. She makes her way to the back of the bar, where she encounters the same older woman who appeared earlier in the video. As she quietly begs for a second chance, the older woman scoffs at the suggestion and says, "This time, you're going to have to show me that there are no bounds and restrictions on what you will do for me," before telling the young woman to "go, because you'll know when I need you."
The story, which Church hints on his Facebook page will "reveal the San Destino townspeople secrets," has even the singer scratching his head.
“I don’t understand it either,” he admits. “There’s a storyline, so basically everybody you see in the ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ video, all the characters, they each have a story line and they all relate to each other.”
'The Outsiders' soared to the top of the charts when it was released earlier this month. The North Carolina native will kick off his tour on Feb. 24 with a series of shows overseas, including stops in Ireland, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and Norway, before returning or his North America run on March 29.
