Kip Moore Shares “Southpaw” Off Upcoming Album WILD WORLD


Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore released “Southpaw,” the
next standout track off his upcoming fourth studio album, WILD WORLD,
exclusively with American Songwriter today and available to listen here. Co-written (with Westin Davis) and produced by Moore, the track hailed by Billboard as
a “guitar-heavy arena-rocker celebrating the underdog,” provides fans
with another glimpse into Moore’s highly-anticipated forthcoming
release, out May 29 and available to preorder here.  The
sturdy “Southpaw” stands as a grunge-rocking manifesto for the proudly
out of touch, rejecting the notion of “going with the flow” and
showcasing just how Moore stands apart in today’s Wild World

Moore
also shared the stripped-down, emphatic acoustic version of “Southpaw,”
as the next installment of his “IN THE WILD SESSIONS” video
series, available to watch here.
Directed by PJ Brown, the stunning video was shot in the heart of Red
River Gorge in Kentucky. Last week, Moore debuted the first installment
of the “IN THE WILD SESSIONS,” which featured the singer/songwriter
performing the album’s title track in the Mojave Desert in California.
More videos set in both locations will be unveiled in the following
weeks.

 

“’Southpaw’
started from a feeling of being on the outside looking in on modern
society,” explains Moore. “I don’t want my edges to be smoothed to fit
into a box. I woke up the day we wrote it feeling like I was born in
the wrong era. I grew up a boxing fan and a Southpaw was always a rare
sighting, unpredictable and hard to prepare for. I wrote the song with
Westin Davis in South Dakota and we’ve always understood each other
like brothers and being kind of cut from the same cloth. I knew he would
get my headspace that day and he always brings the magic. And on the
recording side of things, I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much juice in a
session.”’

 

Co-writing
all but one of WILD WORLD’S insightful tracks, Kip Moore navigates the
search to find a place and purpose. Throughout the 13-song collection
that search is revealed in deeply personal terms, with Moore
even self-producing the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dick and
Blair Daly on respective tracks. The weathered heartland-rock sound
Moore has embraced on previous efforts gets its emotional volume pumped
up, recorded live with a full band, as substance trumped style and the
timeless prevailed over the trendy.  

 

Kip
Moore has toured the world headlining his own shows, earning acclaim
and a rabid fanbase as an all-in performer in each setting and most
recently wrapping 40 sold-out headlining shows in The U.S, The U.K. and
Canada. Praised by Noisey as “an
uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders” Moore has
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 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 Moore on multiple “Best Of” lists. Moore
is currently gearing up to hit the road this summer as a special
guest on Sam Hunt’s THE SOUTHSIDE SUMMER TOUR. For more information
