Keith Urban has spent the last three years as a judge on American Idol, but now with the iconic show setting sail into television history with its final season which wrapped earlier this year, the country music superstar has hit the road.
His new album is ‘Ripcord’ and it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 in May and topped the Billboard Country Albums chart and has gone on to be certified gold in Australia. Thus far it’s produced three No. 1 hit singles. The album has drawn notice for its wide variety of musical styles and unexpected collaborations, not least the track “Sun Don’t Let Me Down” which features Miami rapper Pitbull and Nile Rodgers of the iconic 1980s group Chic.
Earlier this year, he said of the album in an interview with Billboard, “I just felt that I was at the point where I wanted to reach out to some different collaborators in the studio — people I really love — and get some more colors on the record.”
He spoke about the success of the album in his interview on stage with David Muir, ABC News’ World News Tonight anchor and when asked about the new tour he noted what’s different this time around, saying, “Everything New songs. new production.”
He also spoke about the underlying message of his hit “Wasted Time” which is from the new album. He said it’s about “just being in the moment, more than anything.” He also spoke about the fourth single of the album, the latest, which has drawn rave reviews from critics, calling it “a little sultry.”
