Kip Moore Announces New ‘Wild World’ Album, Shares Its Title Track [LISTEN]
Kip Moore has revealed the name, release date and album art for his long-anticipated fourth studio album. Wild World will be released on May 29 via MCA Nashville.
Wild World is Moore's first full-length, fully produced studio album since Slowheart was released in September of 2017. The lead single, "She's Mine," sits just inside the Top 40 on country radio airplay charts. That's one of the 12 songs he helped write of 13 total tracks; the lone exception is "Red White Blue Jean American Dream." See the full Wild World track listing below.
Talking to Taste of Country, Moore said the album's final song "Payin' Hard" is the most important song on this next album.

"It’s possibly the single most personal song I’ve ever written," he shares. "I think that it’s a very direct mirror on what I was feeling during this specific time of my life of writing this record, when I was completely wiped in every facet, having a lot of questions in my head, wondering if I’d done things the wrong way. I’ve always been so consumed with this because I love it so much that I end up neglecting things that are important to me in my life. And I’m starting to find balance and understand that I don’t know if I’m willing to do that anymore."
Blair Daly and Westin Davis helped Moore write the song. Davis, Dan Couch, Luke Dick and Josh Miller are among Moore's most-trusted co-writers, and they're all over this new studio album.
On Friday (March 28), Moore dropped the title track of Wild World when announcing the album. Press play above to listen.
