(AUDIO) Justin Moore Finds Room To Experiment A Little On His New Album

July 14, 2013

Justin Moore has said that there are some surprises on his next album, which will be out in September. One of the reasons is because in addition to his usual co-writers he wrote with several new people. Also he says having 16 tracks on the album allowed him a little more room to experiment. “It’s not gonna sound pop or it’s not gonna be anything that can cross over. There’s some songs that I cut on this album that I don’t think earlier in my career I would have. I’m excited about it. Hopefully it’ll be good. There’s some stuff on there even I was going, ‘Uh. Really? You think I can do this?’” But he says his long-time fans shouldn’t worry, because there will be plenty of songs with his familiar sound on the new album as well. But he wanted to push his comfort zone a little because Justin says, “With the format the way it is, you have to continue to evolve as an artist. I’d love nothing more than to cut an album that sounded like Mark Chesnutt in 1994. I’m not very smart but I’m smart enough to know that I don’t know if I can get that played on the radio. It’s exciting for me to go out and try some different things. As an artist, it’s kinda fun.” “Point At You” is the first single off the new album, Off the Beaten Path, which will be available on September 17th.

“I wrote with all the same guys that I wrote the first two albums but I also wrote with a number of other guys to. It’s got all the songs that my fans would expect to hear from me on it. There’s gonna be 16 songs on the record, which I’m excited about. It’s more than we’ve ever had. I think that allowed us—also with the success of a song like “Till My Last Day” allowed us to experiment a little more. It’s not gonna sound pop or it’s not gonna be anything that can cross over. There’s some songs that I cut on this album that I don’t think earlier in my career I would have. I’m excited about it. Hopefully it’ll be good. There’s some stuff on there even I was going, “Uh. Really? You think I can do this?” I lived with them and lived with them. With the format the way it is, you have to continue to evolve as an artist. I’d love nothing more than to cut an album that sounded like Mark Chesnutt in 1994. I’m not very smart but I’m smart enough to know that I don’t know if I can get that played on the radio. It’s exciting for me to go out and try some different things. As an artist, it’s kinda fun.”
