Keith Urban

In a recent interview, Keith Urban discussed his induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, an honor that left him feeling truly surreal. Reflecting on his early days in Nashville, he mentioned how the city still evokes memories of his songwriting sessions at MCA publishing, which, despite being tough, served as a valuable training ground for him as a songwriter.

Urban expressed his excitement about being recognized as a writer, emphasizing how much he loves songwriting and how collaboration with other artists constantly teaches him new things about the craft.

Regarding his forthcoming album expected to release in 2024, Urban revealed that most of the album is already finished, with just one more song to record and others needing to be mixed. He described the creative journey of the album, sharing how he had to start over with a new direction after feeling dissatisfied with his initial work. While fatherhood doesn’t directly inspire his songwriting, there is one deeply personal song called “Break the Chain” that is likely to make it onto the album.

Urban also discussed his upcoming Las Vegas residency in November, expressing excitement about the intimate connection with the audience and the freedom to experiment with production. He sees the residency as a challenge to win over both dedicated fans and curious newcomers, reminiscent of his early days performing in clubs.

Finally, the interview touched on a viral video in which Urban accidentally captured Phoebe Bridgers and Bo Burnham kissing at the Taylor Swift Eras tour. While he never heard back from them, he playfully apologized for the unexpected intrusion.
