On September 13, Capitol Nashville artist Keith Urban will release the debut single “Put You In A Song,” from his forthcoming release, Get Closer, due Tuesday, November 16. “Put You In A Song” was co-written by Urban, Sarah Buxton and Jedd Hughes and is co-produced by Dann Huff and Urban.
Capitol is offering country radio websites a widget window featuring a 30-min. live streaming chat with Keith on Sept. 13 at 10 am central [see below]. Added easily to station sites it will also allow listeners/fans to submit questions to Keith in advance of the event.
“I’ve always loved songs about the guy in love with the unattainable girl,” said Urban of
“Put You In A Song.” “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.”
Urban added, “On my way to write with Jedd and Sarah, I stopped by this music shop and bought a bouzouki. 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.”
Get Closer follows Urban’s No. 1 album, Defying Gravity, which produced two No. 1 singles including “Only You Can Love Me This Way” and “Sweet Thing,” for which Urban won his third Grammy Award.
Urban is currently in the studio in Nashville, putting the finishing touches on Get Closer.
