Keep Moving is the debut solo studio album by Australian hard rock musician Andrew Stockdale. Initially conceived as the third album by Stockdale's band Wolfmother, it was later announced to be a solo album after the disbandment of the group in March 2013. Recorded by Wolfmother between 2011 and 2013, Keep Moving was released by Universal in June 2013.
Following the release of their second album Cosmic Egg, which was mainly regarded favourably by critics, Wolfmother toured extensively on the New Moon Rising World Tour. Drummer Dave Atkins left the band in April 2010, and was replaced by Will Rockwell-Scott for the rest of the tour. News that the group were working on new material for a follow-up to Cosmic Egg was first revealed in March 2011, when a news post on the official website explained that the band were "hermiting [sic] in [their] home studio jamming away ... creating some good ol' foot stompin' hand clappin' rock'n' roll". Interviewed in June, frontman Andrew Stockdale revealed that "12 or 13 songs" for the album had been completed, produced by Stockdale and engineered by rhythm guitarist Aidan Nemeth, and that a November 2011 release date was likely. The album was said to have been completed in October, with just the mixing process to be completed, although the following month an early 2012 release date was predicted.
After relatively few updates regarding the fate of the album, it came to light in February 2012 that Nemeth and Rockwell-Scott had in fact left the band, and rumours emerged that there was a lack of interest in the album from the band's record labels. Remaining members Stockdale and Ian Peres enlisted the services of Vin Steele (rhythm guitar), Elliott Hammond (keyboards, percussion) and Hamish Rosser (drums) to complete the band lineup, and it was planned that the album would be re-recorded and self-released. The band returned to touring in March, performing new material at a number of shows, including the songs "Long Way to Go", "Keep Moving", and "Of the Earth". At the end of October the band broke their three-month silence, revealing with the news of another show that the album would be released in 2013.
On 14 November 2012, frontman Andrew Stockdale shared on Twitter a video performance of a new song, entitled "One More Time", which he revealed would be included on the band's upcoming third album. Later in December, Stockdale revealed that after "about 15 months of on-and-off recording in about four or five different locations", there were eight songs recorded, mixed and mastered for the album, which he predicted would comprise a total of 12 tracks. In his last published interview of 2012 the vocalist and guitarist went into more depth with regard to the production of the album, speaking about stylistic influences, the recording process (including personnel and locations), and the songwriting. On 6 March 2013, frontman Andrew Stockdale announced that he would be releasing the new album under his own name, not that of the band. He described the album as "a different trip now", putting the future of Wolfmother as a band in doubt. He later confirmed that the Wolfmother band name would no longer be used, confirming that the current lineup would continue under his own name as a solo project.
Keep Moving was announced by Stockdale immediately after the news of Wolfmother's disbandment on 6 March 2013. A rough copy of the album, produced in late 2012 and released under the Wolfmother name, was made available for streaming for 24 hours on 7 March 2013 on SoundCloud, before the album was officially announced for release on 25 March 2013. "Long Way to Go" was released on 7 March 2013 as a promotional single from Keep Moving, available to stream on Tumblr.
