Kip Moore documented his journey to his new album, Slowheart, with music, experiences, a documentary and photos, including those you see on the album. It wasn’t his idea to have cameras follow him 24/7, but he soon realized what a special journey he was on and embraced the idea. The video and photos of Kip’s experiences over the last year were the brainchild of his buddy and filmmaker PJ Brown, who also captured Kip in moments and memories, which ended up on the cover of his new album.
Just yesterday (Monday November 20) Kip posted the following message on his Facebook page:
‘The Journey to Slowheart’ is available today. I never knew that purposely taking a break from music, would bring me back to the core of why I fell in love with it in the first place. This picture was taken after my last wave of the trip. I had been in the water for probably 6 straight hours in some of the best surf I’ve ever had a chance to experience. I knew I wouldn’t see this spot again for another year and Its almost impossible to put into words what I remember feeling in that moment.
We never intended to make a documentary about these travels or the Slowheart record. Pj and I have been taking surf trips together for years…He just finally figured out how to turn on a camera and focus his energy on that instead of xbox. Thanks PJ (@lifeinrewindfilms) for being the friend you’ve been through the years and always shooting me straight. Hope you guys enjoy this!
