Urban Launches iTunes Countdown, Sets Salvation Army Halftime Show

Beginning today (10/26) Keith Urban is revealing a new track every Tuesday exclusively at iTunes from his new album, Get Closer, set for release on November 16. The album’s first single “Put You In A Song,” and “Long Hot Summer,” are available now and two more tracks will be released before the album comes out: “Without You” (11/2) and “You Gonna Fly” (11/9). Once the album release date arrives, fans can “complete their album” on iTunes paying only for the songs they do not already have.

In addition to the new tracks coming out each Tuesday, a free video podcast featuring Urban’s take on the song will be available on iTunes.

Get Closer follows Urban’s Platinum release Defying Gravity, which produced two No. 1 singles: “Only You Can Love Me This Way” and “Sweet Thing”, for which Urban won his third Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance).

Urban will perform at The Salvation Army Kettle Kickoff at halftime of the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game against the New Orleans Saints. His show will mark the 14th year that the Dallas Cowboys and The Salvation Army have partnered to raise money for people in need. The Red Kettle campaign has raised more than $1.3 billion since the partnership began. As part of the Kettle Kickoff promotion, fans will have a chance to win a trip to the game by signing up to be an Online Red Kettle virtual bell ringer at www.onlineredkettle.org.
