Keith Urban Is Slowing Down for Release of New Album, “The Speed of Now: Part 1”

After successfully hosting the pandemic-altered ACM Awards on Sept. 16, Keith Urban can finally “slow down” and enjoy the music.

Keith will release his new studio album, The Speed of Now: Part 1, on Sept. 18.

“In October 2019, this album title came to me,” says Keith. “I liked it because I felt like life was flying by so fast. But music—for me—has always been the place where it slows down and doesn’t even exist. I would never have imagined that, in 2020, this album title would take on a whole new meaning.”

Keith has already shared a number of tunes from the 16-song collection, including “We Were,” “Polaroid,” “Superman,” “Change Your Mind,” “One Too Many,” and current single, “God Whispered Your Name.” Keith’s upcoming album features a few collaborations, including “Out of the Cage” with Breland and guitarist Nile Rodgers, as well as duet “One Too Many” with pop star Pink. The album also includes Keith’s 2019 single, “We Were,” which features vocals from one of the tune’s songwriters, Eric Church.

The Speed of Now: Part I will follow Keith’s 2018 album, Graffiti U, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
