Keith Urban let his secret plans for 2020 slip while basking in the bright lights of this year’s Grammy Awards red carpet, admitting that fans will soon have a whole new batch of music to enjoy.

Speaking with the Associated Press just before the Staples Center ceremony got underway, the country superstar opened up how his 12th studio album will roll out — with only a little bit of hesitation in his voice.

“We’ve been working on it for the better part of all last year, and we’re anxious to get it coming out now,” Urban said, wondering how much he should reveal. “So it’ll be coming out all throughout this year. … We should have a new single next month, and then an album hopefully in the latter part of the fall.”

That “all throughout this year” part is interesting, perhaps signaling that fans will hear more than just a new single before the follow up to GraffitiU is unveiled. Urban already dropped the nostalgic, Eric Church co-written “We Were” from his new project (hitting the Top 5 of country radio), but there’s no telling where the famously-adventurous artist will go from there.

In other Urban news, the hit maker has added four new dates to his ongoing Keith Urban Live Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum, booking shows in July and September with tickets on sale on January 31 at 10 a.m. PT.

He’ll also host the 7th Annual All for the Hall benefit show in Nashville on February 10, with proceeds benefiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s educational programs. Performers for this year’s jam-style show include Luke Combs, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborne, Tanya Tucker, Ingrid Andress, Lauren Daigle and Tenille Townes.
