Mo Pitney will release his second album Ain’t Lookin’ Back on 15th August 2020 through Curb Records.
To mark the announcement Mo released a fourth track from the set, Mattress of the Floor. Watch the video for it below:
Ain’t Lookin’ Back is produced by Jim “Moose” Brown and it combines Mo’s love of traditional country music in the vein of Ray Price, Buck Owens and Roger Miller with his affinity for singer/songwriters like Randy Newman and James Taylor. The album features 13 tracks that merge acoustic-driven country, bluegrass and soulful blues with tender, heartfelt lyrics.
“I wanted to be completely open-minded while recording this album. It was important for me to meld all my influences of the past that represent who I am as an artist today, hopefully to make one complete thought and to make something new. The end goal was to shut out all other voices, close our eyes, and create something that came from the heart,” shares Mo of the making of the new album. “I’m looking forward to taking this body of work that is completely me and sharing it with the world. I’m excited to see people’s reactions.”
For the record Mo worked with more than two dozen songwriters including Bobby Tomberlin, Paul Overstreet, Tim Nichols, Matt Jenkins, Trevor Rosen, Matt Ramsey, Matt Alderman, Billy Montana, Randy Montana, Jimmy Yeary, Mark Nesler and Tom Douglas, among others. Mo has co-writing credit on seven tracks.
