Keith Urban is getting ready to release his new album, The Speed of Now, on Friday (September 18th). The collection, Keith’s tenth studio album, features 16 tracks, including his recent Top 5 single, “God Whispered Your Name,” “We Were” – featuring Eric Church, the song’s co-writer, as well as the original solo track, Keith’s new duet with P!NK on “One Too Many” and “Out The Cage,” the album’s opening tune, which highlights a collaboration with Breland and the legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers.
Keith says the title originally was about how fast life’s little moments were flying by, but took on a whole new meaning after COVID-19 hit with a worldwide pandemic.
“This title came to me in October of last year, and it was more of a comment about how fast everything was going,” says Keith. “So, the title was a bit of a comment on that, but it took a 180 and suddenly now means something very, very different.”

Keith Urban (TSON title) OC: …very different. :16
“This title came to me in October of last year, and it was more of a comment about how fast everything was going. So, the title was a bit of a comment on that, but it took a 180 and suddenly now means something very, very different.”
Keith Urban (TSON is a combination of elements) OC: …insight into that. :28
“I just try to take the most accurate, honest photograph of who I am, where I’m at, who I’m listening to, what my life is like, what it’s been like, what my aspirations are, the way I feel about things, people, the world. I try and capture all of that on a record, and themes, the themes that I write about which is quite diverse on this record. So, if you wanted to know who I am, this record would give you a good insight into that.”
