Keith Urban has released a brand-new single, "Break on Me," from his upcoming eighth studio record.

The singer revealed the track on Monday (Oct. 19), as the followup to his No. 1 hit "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16." It's the first ballad that Urban has released as a single since "Cop Car," the fourth single from his 2013 album, Fuse.

"Break on me / Shatter like glass / Come apart in my hands / Take as long as it takes, girl," Urban sings in the song's chorus. "Break on me / Put your head on my chest / Let me help you forget / When your heart needs to break, just break on me."

Urban announced the upcoming song to fans via YouTube on Thursday (Oct. 15), in a video message that discusses what he's been doing lately -- which includes filming American Idol, touring and working on some new music. He also shared a clip of "Break on Me," noting that he is "so excited about this new single" and "looking forward to you guys getting to hear it."

“Break on Me” was written by Ross Copperman and Jon Nite and co-produced by Nathan Chapman.

Urban has been relatively quiet about his new music, but has said that fans can expect outside collaborators or producers.

“I’m always looking for new people to create with,” he says. “I did with with Fuse, and I’m doing it also with this record as well.”

The singer is slated to perform at the 2015 CMA Awards in early November with John Mellencamp, who is a key part of Urban's “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16."
