Take a listen to Keith Urban’s new single ‘Straight Line’

  • by

Keith Urban has shared his latest single “Straight Line”, the first track from Urban’s forthcoming 12th studio album. Urban wrote on Instagram: “This is the song that kicks off an album I’m jonesing to share with you all. I chose it first for a lot of reasons, but particularly because I think it represents an energy and spirit that became a through line of this whole record. I’m gonna cover a lot of themes, emotions and vibes on this album but a very human spirit runs through them all. ‘Straight Line’ is wanting to break out of a soul-sucking routine that you might be stuck in: maybe in a relationship, a job, with creativity, with yourself… whatever it is!! It’s a message of feeling alive again and getting out from under that dark cloud.”

“Straight Line”, written by Urban, Chase McGill, Jerry Flowers and Greg Wells, was co-produced by Urban and Wells. Says Urban of the track: “‘Straight Line’ is the perfect first track off my album because it’s a song born of wanting to break out of routine and feeling like somewhere along the line, life lost some color and excitement – ‘You and me used to be like a year-round summer…’ This song is about getting it back again – a message of taking back your life and driving out from under the dark cloud. If you’ve seen us in concert, I hope this track gives you that same liberated feeling … While ‘Straight Line’s’ lyrics are about being stuck and trying to break out of the monotony, the melody and energy are a boulevard of nothing but green lights. Every song on this album – even the ballads – carries an energy and a life force that became a very strong throughline. I hope you feel it. I’m so excited for everyone to hear the whole thing.”
