Kip Moore Promises Gritty and Intense New Album

(Radio.com) "Hey Pretty Girl" and "Beer Money" singer Kip Moore has been talking about his upcoming sophomore album for months now, saying it's going to be "completely different" from what fans heard the first time around. Now, in an interview with Billboard, Moore says that second album will be coming soon, and that it will be both "intense" in its mood and more than a little "gritty" in the way it sounds.

"It's a very, very intense record," Moore said. "I feel like the first [album], once you got past 'Somethin' 'Bout a Truck' and 'Beer Money,' there was a lot of nostalgia and reminiscing. It was kinda moody and ambient. This one is intense. There's more gritty guitar tones."

Noting the feelings of "nostalgia" that held court on his debut album (it was "more of a looking-back record"), Moore continued by saying his new one "speaks more to the present."

"I feel like I cover better topics than I did on the first one, too. It's not going to be for everybody, but I think the fans of what we've been doing are gonna love it."

One of those topics, he said, is focusing on "blue collar America." "I watched my dad just work so hard, man, for so little and really scrape to get us by," Moore said. "We had six kids and I really got to see the struggle. I wrote a song ('Comeback Kid') really speaking to those people doing the daily grind, getting by, with big families the construction workers, the factory workers, those kind of people. I wrote that for them, straight to the heart." Moore felt so strong about "Comeback Kid," in fact, that he bumped another song off the album to make room for it.

"I can't wait for people to hear what's coming next," Moore told Radio.com. "It's still going to fit in me and what I do but it's going to be so different than this first record because my life is different." more on this story
