Multi-PLATINUM singer/ songwriter Kip Moore’s much-anticipated fourth studio album WILD WORLD is available now via Snakefarm Records in the UK.
To mark the release, Moore shifted gears in the midst of the current landscape and invited an intimate group of industry and fans to a unique Drive-In album release event at the Stardust Drive-In in Watertown, Tennessee. Attendees enjoyed a screening of Moore’s just-released documentary 7 DAYS AT THE ROCK, available to watch here, followed by a compelling conversation with Moore alongside director and longtime collaborator PJ Brown.
Critics have already been quick to praise and highlight many songs on Moore’s WILD WORLD, with Rolling Stone applauding ‘Red White Blue Jean American Dream’, declaring “in a throaty rasp…[the song] takes on a lean, Gaslight Anthem punk-Americana sound”; meanwhile, Billboard writes “another highlight on the project is ‘Southpaw’, a guitar heavy arena rocker celebrating the underdog”, while Esquire spotlights ‘Payin’ Hard’ as “the heftiest emotional wallop of his career”.
Moore co-wrote all but one of the 13 tracks on WILD WORLD, including new UK single ‘Fire And Flame’, given its world premiere on Bob Harris’ ‘The Country Show’ on BBC Radio 2; Moore even self-produced the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and Blair Daly on respective tracks.
“I truly hope the fans are able to enjoy this body of work,” shares Moore. “A lot of people put countless hours and heart into this project. Cheers to all the fans that have been with us every step of the way.”
Kip Moore has toured the world headlining his own shows, earning acclaim and a rabid fanbase as an all-in performer, most recently wrapping 40 sold-out headlining dates in the US, the UK and Canada. Praised by Noisey as “an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders”, Moore has very much blazed his own trail.
The current CMA ‘International Artist Achievement Award’ nominee first splashed into the mainstream with the double-PLATINUM ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck’ in 2012, then followed that up with three more best selling No. Ones (‘Hey Pretty Girl’, ‘Beer Money’ and ‘More Girls Like You’), a trio of ambitious, critically-praised albums and two gritty EPs that landed him on multiple ‘Best Of’ lists.
