Listen to Keith Urban’s New Single, ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’
Following the success of his No.1 songs “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” “Break On Me,” and “Wasted Time,” Keith Urban is ready to release the fourth single, “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” from his wildly popular album, Ripcord.
“(“Blue”) is basically a waltz with a doo-wop feel,” Urban said of the song written by Steven Lee Olsen, Hillary Lindsey and Clint Lagerberg. “Neither really felt right for me, but there was something in this song that I loved. So we programmed this really cool, simple, drum loop that became the rhythmic bones of the song, providing a yin and yang to the minimalist vocal that I wanted to feature.”
The singer recently took fans behind-the-scenes of the track, where he showed them what goes into the production of a song like “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”
“There’s a few songs on the record I didn’t write,” he explained in the video. “I got sent a lot of songs and I got sent this one song called ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color,’ that I loved the title first of all. Obviously, the song just hit me. Lyrically, melodically, it was not like anything I’d cut before.”
“Blue Ain’t Your Color” is the fourth single from Urban’s Ripcord album. Fans can catch him play the waltzy tune during the remainder of his 2016 Ripcord World Tour, featuring Maren Morris and Brett Eldredge. Pick up your copy of Ripcord HERE.
