Critically acclaimed country singer Kip Moore has released “Good Life,” the lead single off his upcoming fifth studio album.
The exuberant country-rock song captures Moore’s reflection and gratitude for a “good life” despite the unfortunate events faced, as detailed in a tongue-in-cheek fashion on the opening verse.
“I’ve been hypnotized by a gypsy lover / Been sucker punched hard by a redneck mother / Been plagiarized by my own damn brother / Hey man, I think that’s my line / I’ve been crucified by a Baptist preacher / Been face to face with the ole Grim Reaper,” the Georgia native sings, before bursting into an electrifying chorus with his signature gritty delivery.
Lyrically, “Good Life” invites listeners, through Moore’s narrative, to be present to the present and celebrate every moment worth celebrating. The ebullient track was penned by Moore alongside Dan Couch and Jay Joyce, the latter who also produced it.
“I haven’t been this fired up about new music in a good while,” Moore admits in a statement. “I’m always trying to push myself out of any comfort zones that I may have settled into during the previous project, and I think working with Jay definitely helped me with that. I wrote this song and many more while surfing this past winter and I can’t wait for the fans to hear what’s coming.”
With its anthemic production and feel-good lyrics, “Good Life” will undoubtedly find a welcome home on country radio and fans’ playlists this summer.
Prior to this, Moore released his fourth studio record, Wild World. The 13-track project featured the rollicking “She’s Mine,” “Southpaw,” “Red White Blue Jean American Dream” and the heart-rending “Payin’ Hard.” Earlier this year, the singer followed it up with a deluxe version, which included “How High” and three other new songs.
If “Good Life” is a precursor of what’s to come, fans can expect Moore to continue wearing his heart on his sleeve on his upcoming fifth album. And with that, will come fresh thought-provoking perspectives on life, love and everything in between.
