Keith Urban’s latest release, Graffiti U, will be made available on vinyl on July 27th, along with two of his previous releases – Be Here and Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy Thing. Graffiti U was released in April, and features the hits “Female” and “Coming Home,” which sits in the Top Five on the charts.
Graffiti U is an unusual title, but Keith tells us there is an artistic meaning behind it. [“So, Graffiti came, and I didn’t like the word on its own. It felt like it needed one more thing, and I thought, ‘Well, it’s for the audience. It’s for the listener. That’s what I do this for.’ It’s what every artist does it for, because . . . I said the other day, ‘If an album played in the forest, would anyone ever hear it?’ (laughs) So, the audience is key. The listener is the other half of it. And I thought ‘You! It’s You are the audience.’ So, Graffiti You felt really good, and when I wrote it down, I thought, ‘Well, it shouldn’t be Y-O-U. It should be just the letter U to really personalize it.’”] SOUNDCUE (:35 OC: . . . really personalize it.’)
Keith takes his Graffiti U World Tour to Salt Lake City tonight (Friday, July 13th), Denver on Saturday (July 14th) and Albuquerque, New Mexico on Sunday (July 15th) with special guest Kelsea Ballerini.
