Kip Moore has a new studio album on the way next spring, but in the meantime he has announced plans for a five-track EP called Underground, available on October 28th. The project draws inspiration from his time out on the road touring, and a personal response to the demand felt from his fans for new music. Kip co-wrote every track on the EP which was largely recorded live.
Kip said, “The problem I often face is leaving behind some songs, because I never stop writing. I write so many that some never see the light of day. I’ve been working on a full record, which looks to be coming out in late spring, but everywhere we go the fans keep asking for the recordings of these underground songs that they’ve been hearing for the last few years. They’re a passionate fan base so I decided to ask my label if I could record these songs live and give them the raw recordings. These songs are completely separate from the new record I’ve been making, I simply made this EP for the true fans.”
Kip did a live performance on Facebook on Friday (October 14th) where he shared the news about his Underground EP as well as some new music with fans. He said: “You guys have stuck with me through thick and thin, and a lot of you guys know that I have a new record coming out in the Spring, but I didn’t want you to wait that long, so we kind of recorded a live underground EP of five songs of a lot of the songs that you guys have known for a while, your underground favorites. It comes out October 28th, but you can preorder it today. I just want to do something special for y’all for always sticking with us and showing up to the shows and knowing all the songs. We appreciate y’all so much.”
Kip continues on his Me & My Kind tour with special guest Jon Pardi. He performs on Thursday, December 8th at The Fillmore, in Downtown Detroit.
