"The process has changed drastically since our first time in the studio so many years ago," says Justin Moore of making his fourth full-length album, Kinda Don’t Care, which hits shelves August 12th.
But the country singer is not interested in nostalgia. "This is the best piece of music we've delivered because it gets more fun each time," he continues. "Naming the album Kinda Don’t Care is not meant to be nonchalant or careless. It's meant to be a challenge to folks to live life a little more freely and be true to themselves."
Kinda Don’t Care includes 12 tracks, with an additional five on the deluxe version. Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman and Natalie Hemby are just a few of the album's big-name co-writers, and Moore's tourmate Brantley Gilbert is a featured vocalist on the song "More Middle Fingers." (That marks their second recorded collaboration, after Gilbert's 2014 hit, "Small Town Throwdown.")
The album's first single, "You Look Like I Need a Drink," reached Number 19 on the latest Billboard Country Airplay chart. "It sounds like something Blake Shelton would say to somebody in a bar," Moore told Rolling Stone Country earlier this year. "I listened to it, and it was completely different than what I had anticipated. I love songs like that, where you read the title, you see the title, and you have to listen to the song. It piques your interest that much."
