Keith Urban has been one busy guy. After becoming the newest member to the Grand Ole Opry, he’s been spending time in Australia taping their version of NBC’s hit The Voice. He might have just celebrated his latest number one “You Gonna Fly,” but Keith is already looking ahead: he’s writing and listening to more songs than ever before for his new album.
In an interview with The Tennessean, Keith says that he feels more freedom than ever before this time around. He’s exploring new avenues and listening to songs from songwriters he hasn’t worked with before. He’s determined to focus on new chapters of his life, and he’s excited about how it’s turning out so far.
“I’m really excited about it in a sense that this creative pull and voice and calling is the strongest I’ve ever felt it. I’m just going where it’s going.”
While Keith doesn’t yet have a time frame for when fans can expect his new record in stores, he admits that he feels blessed to not have to worry about a deadline. He’s going to let his creativity flow and shape the album that he wants to make.
