New album Good To Be available Jan 21st
Keb’ Mo’ has released “Good to Be (Home Again),” from his forthcoming Good To Be album, due January 21st via Rounder Records. Good To Be will be available on CD and digitally with an LP slated for May 2022.
“‘Good To Be (Home Again)’ feels like the title track to my life,” explains Kevin Moore, who is best known by his stage name Keb’ Mo’.
Late last year Keb’ Mo’ announced the album with the official video for “Good Strong Woman” featuring Darius Rucker. In 2021 Keb’ Mo’ also released the singles “Sunny and Warm,” “The Medicine Man” (feat. Old Crow Medicine Show), and a cover of Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me,” all of which will appear on the forthcoming album.
Good To Be was co-produced by Keb’ Mo’ alongside country music legend Vince Gill, who produced three of the album’s 13 tracks, and three-time GRAMMY winner Tom Hambridge (B.B. King, Buddy Guy). Darius Rucker, Kristin Chenoweth, and Old Crow Medicine Show all make guest appearances on the album.
The album was written between Nashville and his childhood home in Compton, which Keb’ recently purchased and renovated. He often found himself reflecting on the idea of home and contemplating what it means to belong and what it takes to stay true to yourself. “You can’t bring an attitude to Compton,” reflects Keb’. “You can’t pose. You can’t be anything but real when you’re walking down the same streets you used to ride your bike on as a kid. In a lot of ways, coming back there felt like it completed me.”
