Kip Moore Shares Feel-Good ‘Underground’ Tune, ‘My Kind’ [Listen]
The track is '80s-inspired, with its chugging, muted electric introducing the song and a catchy chord progression the whole way through. Moore’s raspy voice declares who he is from the first word: “My kind bleeds a little blue around the collar / My kind knows how roll a little smoke / My kind knows about a hard-earned dollar / We drink Jack straight, no Coke."
Written by Moore, Erik Dylan and Justin Weaver, the sparsely-arranged "My Kind" is reminiscent of a Springsteen tune or even .38 Special, spun with Moore’s signature sound. "My Kind" will appear on a five-song EP Moore says will be a totally different project from his upcoming album. He created it, he explains, as a response to his fans’ call for new music. Since he’s writing the whole time he’s on the road and performing some of his new songs live, he decided to put a few of those ‘underground’ tracks together in a collection.
“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,” Moore says of Underground. “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.”
Underground is slated for release Oct. 28. Moore is currently on his Me and My Kind Tour, which runs through December.
