Today marks the release of Keith Urban’s new video “Wasted Time,” for the song that is one of the fastest rising chart singles of his career. The video marks the second from Urban’s new album RIPCORD (“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16), which will be released on Friday, May 6th, and the third directed by John Urbano (“Cop Car” and “Somewhere In My Car”).
Of “Wasted Time” Urban says, “I worked with a lot of new people on Ripcord, and Greg (Wells) was one I’d wanted to work with for a long time.” “He’d been writing a lot with J (James) and so the three of us spent a couple days at Greg’s studio to jam and see if we clicked. Greg had this cool chord progression and I grabbed my guitar and started singing a melody.”
“J suggested the title, and before we knew it, we were talking about growing up and all the things you do, no matter where you are in the world, and the song just took off from there.” “Wasted Time” was co-written by Greg Wells, J Hart and Urban and was co-produced by Urban and the Grammy Award winning Producer of the Year Greg Wells (Adele, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, etc.).
The much-anticipated eighth studio album RIPCORD, the result of Urban’s nearly 18-month musical journey, features some of the music industry’s most celebrated and influential musical collaborators from Pitbull to Nile Rodgers to Carrie Underwood and Dann Huff to Jeff Bhasker, Greg Wells and busbee.
Its release coincides with the June 2nd launch of the four-time Grammy Award winner’s “ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016” with Brett Eldredge and special guest Maren Morris.
