After teasing his return to the recording studio on social media, Keith Urban has released a brand-new single, “We Were,” a reflective mid-tempo ode to mischievous youth.
“I like the idea that life just happens,” says Urban. “At some point, whether in the moment or not, you just gotta go with it.”
The track’s emotive and picturesque lyric elicits memories to which most can relate. This, as Urban says, is what initially drew him to the track. “When I first heard “We Were”, I not only heard it, but I saw it. It made me feel something. The imagery is so strong – a stamp on the back of a hand, a Saturday night cover band, the girlfriend (or boyfriend) we ran with, and a fake ID (which of course I never had). So many of us can relate or will likely relate at some point!”
“We Were” was written by Ryan Tyndell, Jeff Hyde, and Eric Church, and was co-produced by Dann Huff and Urban.
