This Friday marks
the release of Keith Urban’s GRAFFITI U, his first new studio album in
nearly two years.  The much-anticipated follow up to 2016’s
record-breaking, #1 platinum album RIPCORD, GRAFFITI U is
a natural musical progression that began with FUSE, but it also marks
where Urban currently resides creatively. It’s this sense of presence
during his writing and recording process that gives each of Urban’s
albums an unabashed honesty and authenticity.

“There were no
parameters or preconceived ideas,” says Urban.  “I began this process
with a completely blank canvas. Every initial spark is organic and then
expanded upon, like the art of graffiti, so the
name really fit the music. I also liked the idea of “you” the listener
(or the audience), because this is an inclusive experience. And because
of my last name we had a little grammatical fun and shortened it to U.”

A soaring spirit
spray-painted right from the heart, Urban’s curiosity powers each moment
on GRAFFITI U and the very title speaks to that personal and passionate
vibrancy, vitality, and vision.

After nine full-length studio albums and millions of, songs, albums and tickets sold worldwide, of his
drive to collaborate and explore hismusical
curiosity Urban says, “I’ve always been creatively curious and I follow
that passionately. That’s why I work with different people, and on this
album predominantly new people, giving me
an opportunity to discover new musical sides of myself.”
