Keith Urban’s Next Album to Feature Songs About His Dark Days Before Rehab
Keith Urban was not ready to write songs after checking out of rehab in 2007. In fact, it was two years later before “Defying Gravity” came out. That CD featured what Keith called “buoyant, joyous songs” like “Kiss A Girl” and “Sweet Thing”.
Well, enough time has passed and Keith is now ready to dig a little deeper. He says,
For some reason I’ve started writing recently and these things are now starting to now come into the songs. It’s five and a half years later. So for whatever reason they’re just coming through a little bit more now.
And I want to explore some of those now. I think it’s been long enough to have a particular perspective on it as well, where again it’s not conscious, the songs are just starting to touch upon some of these things.”
There’s no word when the new album will be out.
