Keith Urban’s To “Get Closer” On New Album

Urban, Keith

Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year nominee Keith Urban will release his seventh studio album, Get Closer, on Nov. 16.

Luckily, fans won't have to wait that long to get new music from country music's favorite Aussie—his next single, "Put You In A Song," will be released on Sept. 13. The song was co-written by Keith along with Sarah Buxton and fellow Aussie Jedd Hughes (of duo Buxton Hughes).

Sarah is the songwriter behind Keith's 2006 hit "Stupid Boy," while Jedd Hughes is former guitarist for Keith. Keith says the song's storyline is a familiar one for him. "I've always loved songs about the guy in love with the unattainable girl, and the idea that the only chance that this poor guy is ever going to have to get close to the object of his affection is to put her in a song, just struck me. That way he'd be able to take her with him everywhere he goes ... day and night."

"On my way to write with Jedd and Sarah, I stopped by this music shop and bought a bouzouki," Keith adds in a statement. "I got it out of the case, we got a great groove going on the drum machine, I started playing the opening riff and the song just took off."
