Keith Urban Shares the Title of His Upcoming New Album
Keith Urban is readying his eighth studio album, and he has offered fans another tidbit of information about the project by officially announcing the record's title.
Urban's new disc will be called Ripcord. The country music superstar gave a huge clue about the title on Saturday (Oct. 24), when he simply tweeted the word "Ripcord" to his 2.38 million followers on Twitter.
So far, Urban has released two songs from the project: In June, Urban officially debuted “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” which quickly became his 19th No. 1 song, and he revealed the gorgeous ballad "Break on Me" in mid-October.
It's been more than two years since the release of Urban's last record, Fuse, and fans are hungry for more from the Aussie singer. While he hasn't revealed much about the upcoming album, he notes that it will be reflective of where he is in life.
“I always think records are like photographs; they’re just a snapshot. For me anyway, they’ve all been just an accurate snapshot of who I am, where I am in life, what’s going on," says Urban. "I’ve always really done it sort of haphazard when I get in the studio. You got a bunch of songs and try this song and try that one. Sometimes songs just don’t work, and sometimes other things become something in the studio much more than before. They just come to life.”
Urban is nominated for Musical Event of the Year at the upcoming 2015 CMA Awards and is slated to perform with John Mellencamp during the awards ceremony, which is scheduled to take place on Nov. 4 at 8PM ET on ABC.
