Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has extended its worldwide publishing agreement with Keith Urban, as announced today by Kent Earls, Executive VP/General Manager, UMPG Nashville. UMPG will continue to publish Urban’s catalog throughout the world, including his new album Fuse, which was released on Sept. 10.

“Keith’s musical talent is incomparable and his latest project, Fuse, is yet another example of his evolution as an artist. And he’s proved over and over to be a great songwriter for himself and many others. We’re proud to be publishing partners with Keith for over four successful years and look forward to many more together,” said Earls.

In addition to Urban, a number of UMPG songwriters co-wrote or co-produced multiple tracks on Fuse, including Mike Elizondo (co-wrote and co-produced both “Good Thing” and “Red Camaro”), Jimmy Robbins (co-wrote “We Were Us” feat. Miranda Lambert), Nathan Chapman (co-produced “We Were Us” feat. Miranda Lambert, “Little Bit of Everything,” and “Raise ‘Em Up” feat. Eric Church), and Shane McAnally (co-wrote “Come Back to Me”). Robbins also co-wrote “Gonna B Good,” a bonus track on the deluxe version of Fuse.
