Update: Kip's people emailed me and said the info Amazon has listed may change in the future and may not be completely accurate so you can take the below info or leave it, it's up to you. Just an FYI.

Kip Moore recently told Billboard that he hoped for a spring release for the follow up to his 2012 album 'Up All Night', and it looks like he's gotten his wish.

Kip Moore Smoke

Just in case you don't speak Amazonian, the screen-grab above shows that Kip Moore's new album 'Smoke' is set to be released on April 29, and is even available for pre-order as we speak. 

This is the first time the name of the album has been revealed. As for what fans can expect from the upcoming CD, Kip tells Billboard:  

"It's a very, very intense record," Moore tells Billboard. "I feel like the first one, once you got past 'Somethin' 'Bout a Truck' and 'Beer Money,' there was a lot of nostalgia and reminiscing. It was kinda moody and ambient. This one is intense. There's more gritty guitar tones. It speaks more to the present, where the last one was more of a looking-back record. I feel like I cover better topics than I did on the first one, too. It's not going to be for everybody, but I think the fans of what we've been doing are gonna love it."

The first song from the CD, Young Love, is available for download on iTunes now.
