Two years after the release of his No.1 record, Ripcord, Keith Urban is ready to deliver a batch of new songs to fans with Graffiti U. 13 new songs are expected on the upcoming project, including Urban’s latest single “Coming Home,” featuring Julia Michaels, and the timely “Female.”
“Coming Home” was sent to country radio just weeks ago and features a bit of Merle Haggard’s flair within the guitar riffs. Haggard was a hero to the Australia native, who was excited to honor the icon in the track.
“Hearing that rolling Haggard guitar lick sparked memories of my childhood – and my dream to come to America.” Urban said of the song. “I knew right then the story (of the song) was about the struggles of being in a city where your dreams have brought you, but far from your home – wherever, whomever and whatever that is for each of us.”
Fans can expect Keith Urban’s Graffiti U to hit shelves on Friday, April 27. Urban will take the new tunes out on the road for his 58-city Graffiti U World Tour 2018, with special guest Kelsea Ballerini, which begins June 15 in St. Louis, MO.
