After some playful teasing on Twitter and InstagramKip Moore has made his big announcement: his much anticipated sophomore album, titled Wild Ones, will be released on Aug. 21.

The album includes current single “I’m To Blame,” a song Moore previously told was “essential” to be part of his album. “It set the tone for what’s coming.”

Wild Ones also includes a song called “Comeback Kid,” which Moore has said is the most special to him on the whole album: “I can’t wait for people to hear that track and hear space in music.”

“It’s just a very passionate, intense record. There’s a lot of seriousness behind this record,” he told “There’s definitely some playfulness. It’s changed a little bit, too. It was a lot more intense and it’s changed a little bit.”

Wild Ones is the followup to Kip Moore’s 2012 release Up All Night. One of that album’s songs, “Somethin’ Bout a Truck,” went to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart.
