Keith Urban Heads Down Under for The Voice

While the current season of The Voice is well underway in the United States, the Australian version will be filming through the coming months and country superstar Keith Urban will be making the trek down under to join the cast.

Urban worked closely with the show’s production schedule in Sydney to minimize the time commitment to maintain his busy U.S. schedule, which includes his All For The Hall benefit on April 10 in Nashville.

Australia’s version of the show joins others in Albania, Holland, and the UK and includes Urban, Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden, and Seal as judges and Darren McMullen as host.

“It’ll be a blast spending a little time in Australia working on The Voice, getting the opportunity to try and help some killer raw talent blossom,” said Urban. “The good thing about the show is they focus on the strengths in people. I did a few of these things when I was younger, and I know what it’s like to just be crucified. I look at this as an opportunity to give back and help somebody. It’s working with players and trying to have a vision, and really play to their strengths. And I have a feeling that being immersed in that new kind of ‘everything is possible’ energy, will have a real inspiring and liberating effect on creating new music for my new album!”

No release date is set for the album as of yet, but Urban is said to continue working on the release throughout the year while in Nashville.
