Kid Rock Leans on Last Name for New Album

July 30, 2007 03:09:05 GMT


On the weight of his last name, Kid Rock comes subtle on the rap side for his next release. The all-said new title "Rock & Roll Jesus" leans rather heavily on rock with gospel-like materials as side dish. The title track, first single "So Hot" and a song called "Roll On" are all but the two elements leaving "Sugar" as the lone rap song.

Kid stated that he initially might either call the album "Rock & Roll Jesus" or "Amen" because his "best writing ever" laid on the latter. Ironically, the wise producers landed their choice to the former to avoid giving any false impression. Standing side-by-side to "Amen" is "When You Love Someone", a self-proclaimed rootsy gospel hued affair.
