Some great news today for Kip Moore’s massive Australian and global fanbase.

He has just announced that his fourth studio album Wild World will be released May 29.

Moore has also just released the album’s bluesy title track ‘Wild World’ on digital services.

It’s a song that he says “anchors the album.”

The album’s previously released first single, ‘She’s Mine’ went to #1 on the TMN Country Hot 50 last year.

Moore says that throughout the album writing process he was trying to navigate the search to find a place and purpose.

“We wanted it to be more in-your-face,” he says. “More earthy, more analog,” he says.

Moore co-produced the new 13-song collection 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 on this album.

It was recorded live with a full band.

His straightforward honesty arrives early on the record, starting with the very first song, ‘Janie Blu,’ about a girl who’s always been special, but often stood in her own way – a compassionate, force-of-nature plea to get your head right, before it’s too late.

Likewise, 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.

Meanwhile, the calming ‘More Than Enough’ presents a better option, blowtorch anthems like the ‘Fire And Flame’ pour gasoline on the quest for greater meaning and ‘Red White Blue Jean American Dream’ flies down an empty highway of optimism.

“I know it’s an unsettling time for a lot of people right now, and so my hope is that this music can bring even just one person some peace,” shared Moore.

“I try to make music that reaches people in a pure sense – something that’s light and easy to carry with you, but 1000 pounds of weight at the same time, and I think Wild World is just a depiction of what I see.”

“Life is one crazy, wild ride. But it can be so simple if we look for the right things, and I think that is more important than ever right now.”

Moore was a headliner for the recently cancelled CMC Rocks QLD festival.

Sideshows were also scheduled in Sydney and Melbourne while he was here.

He is hoping to re-schedule those shows, plus add a show in Brisbane later this year pending the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic.
