The first installment of the three-part project born from that atypical process arrives in full today: Heart is available everywhere now. The release, the first third of the trilogy, opens with heartland anthem “Heart On Fire” whose greasy, Southern stomp nods to Bob Seger and The Rolling Stones, then sees the influence of Bruce Springsteen on “Heart Of The Night” and “Russian Roulette,” two tracks that find Church spinning stories of dead-end towns, fast cars, and the lure of the wide-open American highway. Heart’s overall theme, encapsulated by its own moniker, is evident in “People Break,” a wistful reflection about the realities of moving on, as well as in “Stick That In Your Country Song,” the defiant single which was recorded in a one-take rush to beat an impending power outage as a storm rivaling the song’s own manic energy raged outside. Rounding out the initial album of the Heart & Soul trio are the endearingly reassuring “Never Break Heart,” which despite being written pre-pandemic seems tailor-made for the realities of the past year, the witty drinking song “Crazyland,” which sees Church playing a brokenhearted barfly surrounded by personified emotions, the twangy words of wisdom in “Bunch Of Nothing” and the closing anthem “Love Shine Down.”
