Keith Urban is known for his collaborations with artists in all fields of music including his latest single “One Too Many” with Pink. On his latest album, The Speed of Now, Part 1, he also collaborated with Eric Church, Nile Rodgers and Breland.
Keith told us, “I was really lucky to get to work with the people I did, you know, especially, of course Eric Church, the second time we’ve gotten to work together; Nile Rodgers and I, that’s the second time as well. Breland is an amazing young artist who I really wanted to see what we could come up with if we got into a room and wrote together.”
He added, “And of course, Pink on ‘One Too Many’ was just extraordinary getting to sing with her. And even though I didn’t get to do it in the studio in real time because of just not being able to do that at this time – can’t travel, can’t do this, can’t do that – we figured it out. She recorded her vocal at her house and I did mine at mine, and we put it all together.”
The collabs between Urban and his fellow writers, musicians and producers were also of some of the most creative, as well. He offered, “Even the writers and musicians I work (with) and producers — I work with intricately and intimately so many people when I make records. For me, actually, the journey of making a record is an extraordinary experience. The songs come about from that, but the journey of spending time with all these different people from different walks of life is incredible.”
