Keith Urban has confirmed the guests on his upcoming album, The Speed of Now Part 1, and they are Breland, Nile Rodgers, P!nk and Eric Church. Breland and Rodgers are both featured on a song called “Out The Cage,” the album’s opening track, while P!nk lends her vocals to a tune called “One Too Many.” An alternate version of “We Were” features Church, a co-writer on the song which was already a hit at country radio.
Urban said, “When I collaborate, I’m always looking for that ‘third thing.’ There’s what I do, there’s what my collaborator does and then there’s this ‘third thing’ that I’m most curious about. That’s what interests me the most – when the sum of the parts becomes even more than what I envisioned. That’s what I love so much about it – finding common ground, shaping it and bringing it together.”
Urban's new album, The Speed of Now Part 1, will be released on September 18th.
