Kip Moore will release his long-awaited fourth studio album, Wild World, on May 29.

Serving as the follow up to Moore’s 2017 Slowheart album, Wild World includes 13 tracks, 12 of which Moore co-wrote.

The centerpiece and title track of the record, “Wild World” was also released on Friday (March 27) to coincide with the album announcement.

Written by Moore with Josh Miller, the introspective tune was inspired by deep conversations Moore has had with his parents throughout his life.

“They were always inspiring me to chase joy and keeping things simple and that’s how ‘Wild World’ came about because I said that first line,” Moore explained to Billboard. “I said, ‘Mama said wild man won’t you listen/ And come take a seat right here in the kitchen.’ And that’s how the whole thing took off.”

In such an uncertain time, Moore says that he hopes his music will bring some relief to fans who may need an escape from reality.

“I know it’s an unsettling time for a lot of people right now, and so my hope is that this music can bring even just one person some peace,” shared Moore. “I try to make music that reaches people in a pure sense – something that’s light and easy to carry with you, but 1000 pounds of weight at the same time, and I think Wild World is just a depiction of what I see. Life is one crazy, wild ride. But it can be so simple if we look for the right things, and I think that is more important than ever right now.”

The superstar will celebrate the album announcement with a special live stream via Facebook and Instagram later today at 3pm CST.
