Multi-Platinum Singer-Songwriter Kip Moore’s Fifth Studio Album 'Damn Love' Is Out Now
By Stevie Connor.
Multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Kip Moore’s fifth studio album Damn Love is out. Co-produced by Moore, along with Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three), the 13 tracks hold on to passion, with the persistent anthem “Heart on Fire,” while “Another Night In Knoxville” captures the magnetic draw of the stage as a sweeping ‘70s-rock ballad that soundtracks a long-cherished memory. Meanwhile the refreshing “Kinda Bar” conjures magic from a roadside tavern, and a comforting sense of clarity arrives with gentle instant classics, “Some Things” and “One Heartbeat” (featuring Ashley McBryde).
Moore will perform the title track and his new radio single (impacting Monday) “Damn Love” on GMA3 on Monday 5/1 on ABC at 9:00 a.m. EST.
Moore is also sharing the music video for “Sometimes She Stays,” as the third instalment in a series of recently released videos “Damn Love” and “Kinda Bar”. Directed by PJ Brown, the last piece of the story depicts Moore and his love interest revisiting moments in their relationship, set against the backdrop of New York City. Fans can watch the “Sometimes She Stays”.
“Jaren Johnston and I kicked off this album after writing "Peace & Love," which helped create a theme for the rest of the record,” said Moore. “‘Damn Love’ comes from a combination of progression within myself and my career, and being emotionally raw, and the honesty that came along with some self-realization. This record shares all the highs and lows throughout my life, and I hope those who listen can feel that.”
The genre-blending songsmith has a history of entrancing audiences and growing a truly global following, receiving worldwide praise and kicking off his DAMN LOVE WORLD TOUR with multiple sold-out headlining shows in Australia and South Africa. Moore will continue his DAMN LOVE WORLD TOUR with headlining shows in Germany, the Netherlands, and the U.K., along with a slot at Bonnaroo this summer. Inviting special guest The Cadillac Three along for his fall tour, Moore’s headlining U.S. run is set to launch in Saginaw, MI on Aug. 24th.
Known as “one of country’s more thoughtful artists” (Billboard), Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore has toured the world earning acclaim and a rabid fanbase as an all-in performer in each setting, consistently selling out headlining shows internationally with huge followings in the U.S., The U.K., Europe, Australia and Canada. Praised by Noisey as “an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders” Moore has blazed his own trail, with “a bit more Southern rock than traditional country… to be a Kip Moore fan suddenly became a marker of your having a certain refinement in your country-music taste” (Chicago Tribune). Moore first splashed into the mainstream with the double-PLATINUM “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” in 2012, then followed up with three more best-selling No. Ones (“Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “More Girls Like You”), a trio of ambitious, critically praised albums and two gritty EPs that landed Moore on multiple “Best Of” lists. Moore garnered resounding acclaim for his fourth studio album, WILD WORLD. The set, co-written and co-produced by Moore, was spotlighted by critics as “especially vital; occasionally, even rare,” (Esquire).
