Kip Moore is giving fans the first taste of new music from his upcoming fourth studio album with the release of his brand new single, “She’s Mine.”
Moore co-wrote the song with Dan Couch and Scott Stepakoff over 10 years ago and it’s finally getting its chance to be heard after Moore re-worked it in the studio. Taking on the sole producer role, the Georgia native finally got the song to a place he felt was right.
“We just missed the mark when we tracked it the first time for Wild Ones,” he explained to Billboard. “It was too slick and didn’t capture the energy like I wanted it to or even the sentiment of the song … I wasn’t willing to put it out with the way that it was.”
“She’s Mine” came to life after a conversation Moore had with his former guitar player, Dave Lapsley. As they toured around the country, Lapsley would joke with Moore about being a single man, telling him that he could end up meeting the love of his life in a place that he least expected it.
“I wrote this song at a time in my life when I realized that my life was flipped upside down and I didn’t know which way was up,” shared Moore. “Every experience from there forward, I felt like everything was going to be a surprise. I didn’t know where I was going to end up, who I was going to meet or who I was going to be with.”
The 39-year-old told Billboard that “She’s Mine” is one of the more “lighthearted” songs on his forthcoming record, which he plans to release in early 2020. While he wouldn’t divulge too many details about what’s to come, he did share that the album was “going to have a lot of meat to it.”
“I believe that you’re definitely going to see another step of growth on this record,” he continued. “Not only musically, but me as a human … There’s a lot of weight on a lot of these songs. There’s a lot of trying to figure out where you fit in this life as far as your faith and God and love and all these things. I think there’s a lot of heavy weight throughout this record.”
