All the rumors can finally be put to rest, as Keith Urban has given his forthcoming March 31st CD release a name. “Defying Gravity” will feature Keith’s 18th Top 10 single “Sweet Thing.”
“I’ve always approached making records as a journey where I just have to let myself go,” said Urban. “If the conditions are just right the music will reflect the mood and feeling of where I am in my life.”
“Defying Gravity comes from the lyrics of a song on the album and it just struck me at the time as a phrase that really defined the joyous, optimistic and uplifting spirit that seemed to show itself while making the album.”
2009 is shaping up to be a busy one for Urban. This May will mark the launch of his “Escape Together World Tour,” which will visit fifty-eight cities across North America including St. Louis. Urban will team with a different touring partner in each city, including superstars Sugarland and Taylor Swift, as well as Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, The Zac Brown Band and Dierks Bentley.
