Kip Moore released “Southpaw,” the latest track off his upcoming fourth studio album, Wild World, which will be out on May 29.

Kip said of the song, “’Southpaw’ started from a feeling of being on the outside looking in on modern society. I don’t want my edges to be smoothed to fit into a box. I woke up the day we wrote it feeling like I was born in the wrong era. I grew up a boxing fan and a southpaw was always a rare sighting, unpredictable and hard to prepare for. I wrote the song with Westin Davis in South Dakota and we’ve always understood each other like brothers and being kind of cut from the same cloth. I knew he would get my headspace that day and he always brings the magic.”

He added, “And on the recording side of things, I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much juice in a session.”
