Critically acclaimed songwriter John Moreland will release his fourth solo album Big Bad Luv on May 5 via 4AD. Big Bad Luv marks a change in Moreland’s sound and outlook on life. With lyrics that are as intense and unfiltered as on his earlier work, Moreland delves into finding peace within. He also branches out sonically on the new album, which is injected with a heavier dose of rock ‘n’ roll. Big Bad Luv was recorded at Fellowship Fall Sound in Little Rock, AR, produced by Moreland and mixed by Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow). The brutal honesty of John Moreland’s singing and songwriting has touched listeners across the country. He silences rooms from dive bars to more recently the historic Ryman Auditorium stage. The simple and eloquent way that he’s able to speak about life rings as true as ever. “John Moreland has a beautifully abraded voice, full of potholesand gravel…” - The New York Times “Moreland sings heartwrenching lyrics in an earthy voice that sounds worn in beyond his 29 years.” - Wall Street Journal
