Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore continues to heighten anticipation for the upcoming release of his third studio album SLOWHEART, with the exclusive premiere of the track and music video for “Blonde”. Noisey heralds the collection as “the sound of an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders.”
The new album, due out Sept. 8, is Moore’s most unflinching, distinct testimony yet. The culmination of an ever-evolving talent’s process of self-discovery, the LP is a warm and honest embrace of Moore’s rugged rock roots and a showcase for his innate poetic prowess, proving “music is his real lover, while everything else is just an affair” by Rolling Stone, who also notes Moore “pulls no punches.”
Kip Moore has hit his stride with SLOWHEART (available to pre-order now,) he co-wrote 11 out of 13 tracks, and was the sole producer on seven of the tracks, as well as co-producing five more on the collection. His current Top 15 single “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” Moore, who has trail-blazed his own path with his reputation-making live show recently announced his headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR kicking off on 10/19 as well as headlining dates in U.K this fall. Moore also announced this week that he will be teaming up with international skateboarding champion Tony Hawk, for “MUSIC CITY SKATE JAM PRESENTED BY HARLEY-DAVIDSON,” set to take place at Music City Walk Of Fame Park in Nashville, TN on 9/10. With a shared outlook running through Moore’s “Kip’s Kids Fund” and Hawk’s “Tony Hawk Foundation” with the goal of benefiting and empowering youth, the family-friendly event will raise funds for both initiatives.
