Maurice Moore’s latest track, “Shut Up & Kiss Me” is a pop-leaning number, which was originally recorded for his debut mixtape The Amber Room, but didn’t make the cut.
“‘Shut Up & Kiss Me’ was among a batch of songs that didn’t make ‘The Amber Room’,” explains Moore. “I recorded and wrote this in Atlanta in April 2017 with Troy Taylor and LaGuil – these two gentleman also played a part in ‘Having Fun,’ ‘Beginning of the End,’ ‘Thotline,’ and ‘Waste Man.’ After a long day of writing and recording this song we were unsure how we felt about it and honestly, overthought it a lot. I especially was convinced that this wasn’t good enough and that people would think that it was a wack song. This was a very common scenario in the creation of that mixtape and dozens of songs were dashed away into the archives of my MacBook never to see the light of day. Until now.”
