27 APRIL 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Today marks the release of Keith Urban’s GRAFFITI U, his first new studio album in nearly two years via Universal Music Nashville/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The much-anticipated follow up to 2016’s record-breaking, #1 platinum album RIPCORD, GRAFFITI U is a natural musical progression that began with FUSE, but it also marks where Urban currently resides creatively. It’s this sense of presence during his writing and recording process that gives each of Urban’s albums an unabashed honesty and authenticity. Download GRAFFITI U HERE.


“There were no parameters or preconceived ideas,” says Urban. “I began this process with a completely blank canvas. Every initial spark is organic and then expanded upon, like the art of graffiti, so the name really fit the music. I also liked the idea of “you” the listener (or the audience), because this is an inclusive experience. And because of my last name we had a little grammatical fun and shortened it to U.”


A soaring spirit spray-painted right from the heart, Urban’s curiosity powers each moment on GRAFFITI U and the very title speaks to that personal and passionate vibrancy, vitality, and vision.


After nine full-length studio albums and millions of, songs, albums and tickets sold worldwide, of his drive to collaborate and explore his musical curiosity Urban says, “I’ve always been creatively curious and I follow that passionately. That’s why I work with different people, and on this album predominantly new people, giving me an opportunity to discover new musical sides of myself.” 


GRAFFITI U, which has already seen the release of “Female” and “Coming Home,” features over thirty songwriting, producer and featured guest performance credits, including Greg Wells, Dann Huff, Mike Elizondo, Ed Sheeran, Ross Copperman, JHart, Julia Michaels, Nicolle Galyon, J.R. Rotem, Shane McAnally, Shy Carter and a signature lick for “Coming Home,” which credits Merle Haggard as one of its songwriters. Urban himself is a writer or producer on all but one of GRAFFITI U’s songs. See below for tracklisting.


Urban’s 58-city “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR” kicks off on June 15 and includes 10 dates across Canada.  Urban’s live shows have become concert events that electrify with their unpredictability and are hailed by media around the world as a “concert experience not to be missed.” In addition to the performance of brand-new songs, the tour will also feature many of Urban’s 23 #1 hits in an all-new concert production that promises to be more spectacular than ever.
