On March 17, Keith Urban made the announcement that the release date for his upcoming album “Ripcord” will be on May 6, 2016.
With this being his eighth studio album, you’d think he’d be able to put something together entirely on his own knowing that people would love it, but that’s just not the case.
Keith’s wife of nearly 10 years, Nicole Kidman, practically holds all of the marbles when it comes to which songs actually make it on the album.
“She’s heard everything over, and over, and over again. God bless her.” The singer tells Entertainment Tonight. “I’m interested in how I respond just when she’s listening. Without her saying anything, I have a particular response that’s not necessarily the same without her. So, it’s important. I need the girl view.”
With that sweet collaboration and chart-toppers like “Break On Me” and “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” we can already assume that Keith’s new “Ripcord” record is going to be a good one.
“There’s songs about being in the moment, about life, about reminiscing, songs about love, songs about love lost. There’s a song on the record, hopefully called “That Could Still Be Us,” which I think a lot of people can relate to,” adds Keith.
While fans patiently wait to buy “Ripcord,” his third track off of the album will be released on Tuesday, March 29.
