NEW MUSIC: KEITH URBAN | NIGHTFALL
Keith Urban is back with his new euphoric single "Nightfall," his first single since his mega-hit with Pink, "One Too Many," from the 2020 album "The Speed of Now Part 1." Keith co-wrote the new track with the man behind hits for the likes of Adele and Foo Fighters, Greg Kurstin, and Madonna collaborator Mozella. The track feature an insistent, driving beat, heavy layers of keyboards and a joyous feel that seems likely to find its way into Urban's summer shows. The song leans heavily on synths and very little on Urban's signature guitar playing, and the chorus is instantly catchy, making it a perfect summer concert song. The new track arrived just two days after Urban turned to social media to post a two-part video tease letting fans know that new music was coming. It's unclear if "Nightfalls" is from a new full-length project that Urban might be announcing soon. Speaking of the track, he said: "Writing 'Nightfalls' with Greg Kurstin and Mozella was pure joy. Two summers have gone by with no way to tour, and the desire to have that feeling again inspired every part of this song and recording. In a world so full of real struggles and fractures, I wanna try and bring something to help us exhale and be in the moment - if only for 3 mins and 41 seconds." The uplifting tune has been released ahead of Keith's UK leg of his 'Speed Of Now Tour,' which kicks off on April 28 at Birmingham's O2 Academy. The jaunt also sees Keith perform in North America and his native Australia. Meanwhile, the country-pop star recently recalled the "panicked" phone call he received asking him to replace Adele after postponing her Las Vegas residency.
