After teasing his return to the recording studio, reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban released his new single today. “We Were” is a reflective, mid-tempo ode to mischievous youth. “I like the idea that life just happens,” says Keith. “At some point, whether in the moment or not, you just gotta go with it.”
The track’s emotive emotive and picturesque lyrics elicit memories to which most can relate. This, as Keith says, is what drew him to the song. “When I first heard ‘We Were,’ I not only heard it, but saw it. It made me feel something. The imagery is so strong — a stamp on the back of the hand, a Saturday night cover band, the girlfriend (or boyfriend) we ran with and a fake i.d., which of course I never had. So many of us can relate or will relate at some point!”
“We Were” was written by Ryan Tyndell, Jeff Hyde and Eric Church and was co-produced by Keith Urban and Dann Huff.
