Video premiere: Ian Moore’s new single arrives with his return to SXSW

He’s originally from Austin and his upcoming EP is titled “Toronto,” but the video for Ian Moore’s new single “You Gotta Know” features footage shot in the Seattle area, where Moore has lived for more than two decades now.

The song, an immediately catchy three-minute rocker, is an early glimpse at “Toronto,” due out May 25 on Last Chance Records. It’s the first release on the Arkansas indie label for Moore, who rose to prominence in the 1990s with three albums on Capricorn Records after touring as a guitarist with Joe Ely’s band.
