Keith Urban is celebrating the release of his tenth studio album, ‘THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1’, which is out now!
With the album’s release, comes a global promotional blitz that began on Wednesday night in the US with the US network television performance debut of Urban’s duet with P!nk on “One Too Many.” The official music video for the track is blowing up in numerous countries around the world and can be viewed here.
‘THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1’ delivers the power of lifting people up and seeking hope in every – even the challenging – moments, and it serves as the distillation of the music that Urban has been exploring throughout his career. From “Out The Cage,” featuring funk/pop icon Nile Rodgers and Breland, to the giddyup rock of “Tumbleweed,” his 39th US Top 5 “God Whispered Your Name,” his slinky soul pop duet with P!nk “One Too Many,” “We Were,” featuring Eric Church and the old-flannel tumble of “Forever.” Urban has never sounded so immersed in the music.
Always seeking new collaborators, ‘THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1’ defines one of the most wide-ranging careers in modern music, trusting the moments is as much ‘THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1’ as anything. Urban possesses an unadorned willingness to bring the best musical touchstones together seeking not just to expand but to unite influences, genres, trends and the human heart. He casts his sessions, follows his inquisitiveness and trusts his collaborators.
“It’s letting go of parameters, boundaries, expectations, limitations of any sort and taking the most honest and accurate photograph of who I am and where I am musically and personally right now,” says Urban. For a man who sets an ever-higher bar, it’s a serious standard. But for the multi-instrumentalist, it’s also the reason to keep exploring.
