It has been three years since Kip Moore released his last album Slow Heart, and fans have been eagerly waiting for a new LP. Well, the wait is over! The MCA Nashville/UMG artist has announced his highly-anticipated fourth record, Wild World, will drop May 29th. Along with the announcement is the release of the LP’s title track.
On this project, Moore teamed up with David Garcia, Luke Dick, and Blair Daly to take on the role as co-producer while continuing to own his truth by penning all 13 tracks. Frequent collaborators Daly and Westin Davis also have writing credits, amongst others. “We wanted it to be more in-your-face. More earthy, more analog,” the singer said in a press release.
The unveiling of the (coincidentally) aptly titled song, too, comes at a time when we truly are living in what writers Moore and Josh Miller would call, a “wild world.” The track is packed with a great deal of life lessons, as the singer drew from advice given to him by his parents growing up.
“Don’t put your faith in the green of a dollar / And be proud of the blue around your collar / Give a little more, take a little less / You ain’t done till you done your best / Wear it on your sleeve instead of hidden in your chest,” Moore croons in this encouraging life lessons anthem. The 39-year-old also told Billboard that with this next effort, his “first hope at all times is that it does something to your soul when you’re listening to it.”
“I never want to be fodder and just words and melodies. I hope that it somehow applies to other people’s lives and brings them a little peace with questions they have and their own internal struggles they’re having. I’m always hoping they can feel my heart as far as that goes. My heart was put in the project,” Moore added.
