– Kip Moore revealed the cover for his upcoming third studio album "SLOWHEART," out Sept. 8.
The cover image, taken in Costa Rica during Moore's extended break earlier this year He is seated on a stool in what looks like an outside restaurant with the sepia tones dominating.
"My former guitar player called me a 'slowheart' many years ago, claiming I don't just jump the gun and show all my cards or my emotions on what I truly feel," said Moore. "He always said 'you're a slowheart, man...you observe before you act.' I eventually named the band the slowhearts, and my fans are the slowhearts too. And so, its only fitting that the record I've been waiting to make, was named SLOWHEART."
