(AUS) Kid Rock announced that his new album First Kiss will be released on February 20th. The album, his first on Warner Bros. Records, was produced by Kid Rock (with the exception of two songs which were co-produced by Dann Huff) and was recorded at his studio in Michigan.
Following the success of 2012’s Rebel Soul Kid Rock wasted no time getting back to work in the studio. The massive touring on the last album cycle (US $20 Best Night Ever Tour, and Australian support slot for Bon Jovi) allowed Kid Rock to play in front of over 550,000 people in one summer, and left him energised to write and record new material without taking much of a break. First Kiss signals the continued evolution of one of music’s most versatile performers, but we’re not going to tell you what it sounds like – we just couldn’t do it justice and we’re confident the music will speak for itself. If you do the math though, every record Kid Rock has released through WMG has gone platinum or multi-platinum in the US (with the exception of Live Trucker and Rebel Soul which are both certified Gold), so it’s safe to bet the legions of fans Kid Rock has cultivated over his 25 year career are going to enjoy this one too.
Expect the first single to be released at the end of the year with multi-format airplay, a music video, and the rest of the shitshow that goes with releasing an album.
