Five-Time Grammy Winner Keb' Mo' Announces New Album
Legendary blues singer and songwriter Keb’ Mo’ (aka Kevin Moore) announced the forthcoming release of his newest LP, Good To Be. The performer also released his latest single, “Good Strong Woman,” which features Grammy Award-winning musician Darius Rucker.
Mo’s new album, which will be available on January 21, 2022, can be pre-ordered here. It will feature Rucker, Kristin Chenoweth, and Old Crow Medicine Show, among others. Check out the new single below.
“I co-wrote this with two of Nashville’s best country writers, Jason Nix and Jason Gantt,” said Mo’ in a statement. “It’s a song that I didn’t think I’d be recording, but it was just too much fun, and I had to give it a shot. When Darius got involved, it went from fun to stun.”
Over the past year, or so, Mo’ has been dividing his time between Nashville and Compton, California, where he recently purchased and rebuilt his mother’s house. As such he found himself thinking about ideas of home, he said.
“You can’t bring an attitude to Compton,’ Mo’ shares. “You can’t pose. You can’t be anything but real when you’re walking down the same streets you used to ride your bike on as a kid. In a lot of ways, coming back there felt like it completed me.”
Earlier this year, the artist released the singles, “Sunny and Warm” and “The Medicine Man,” which you can watch here below.
