Kip Moore has released “Southpaw,” the next track from his upcoming fourth studio album, “Wild World”.
Co-written (with Westin Davis) and produced by Moore, the track provides fans with another glimpse into Moore’s highly-anticipated forthcoming release, out May 29 and available to preorder here.
Moore also shared the stripped-down, 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.
“’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.”’
