Keith Urban hopes the "total unfamiliarity" surrounding his upcoming album will make for his best record to date.
The country music singer is currently collaborating with new producers and songwriters in different recording studios to where he's worked before.
Keith hopes the untried territory will result in an album unlike anything he’s released before.
“I wanted to have everything around me be totally unfamiliar to me, and I think it’s great in a sense that all sorts of stuff is coming out that I normally haven’t done before,” he told tennessean.com.
“It just isn’t easy to do. But it just feels very, very strong in me to do it. I am putting a tour on next year, but it won’t be early in the year, so there is somewhat of a need for an album sooner than later. But I just would like for the album to be right."
Keith is particularly excited about a song he recently wrote with producer Jay Joyce and Jeremy Spillman. The 44-year-old star says the session was an “exhilarating” experience.
“The song is a bit of my journey over the last six years, my transition,” he explained.© Cover Media
