GRAMMY Award-winning artist Keith Urban will release an exclusive deluxe version of his sixth studio album, Get Closer, at retail giant Target. This deluxe album will feature three new music tracks and four live recordings in addition to the eight original tracks and will be available at Target stores nationwide and Target.com beginning November 16th, 2010.
“It’s been an incredible experience to partner with Target,” said Urban. “I’m thrilled to offer my fans additional songs available only on Target’s exclusive deluxe version of Get Closer.”
The four live tracks were recorded during Urban’s “Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy World Tour.” The title of the album, Get Closer, is Urban’s reflection on love, and how the answer to any situation in a relationship is not to run, but to always “get closer.” This sentiment is apparent in many of the songs on the album, and Urban hopes that his listeners can make a personal connection to the songs.
“We are thrilled to partner with Keith Urban – a 2010 CMA Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist nominee – on his latest album, and offer Target guests exclusive content they can’t get anywhere else,” said Mark Schindele, senior vice president of merchandising at Target. Target has partnered with superstars such as Taylor Swift, The Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera, Prince and Pearl Jam, making an imprint within the entertainment and retail space by offering exclusive content for consumers at affordable prices. Target’s partnership with Urban exemplifies its commitment to provide a platform for artists to give their fans access to exclusive material.
