Keith Urban Drops Brand New Song “Nightfalls”
Keith Urban releases first new music of the year with new single “Nightfalls” available everywhere today, Thursday March 31st.
Keith Urban surprised fans with a new music announcement, just two days before the song would drop. Captioning a video on socials “The one where the phone falls in the middle of making an announcement: part 1” (a clear reference to the show FRIENDS, as it also plays in the background). In the video, he updates his fans about his Vegas shows and shares “I also have something exciting to tell you. We have a brand new song coming out this Thursday and it’s called “Night -”… cutting his sentence short as the phone *falls* and as “to be continued” shows across the screen. The next day, he posted ‘part 2’ saying, “Okay, picking up where we left off. It’s called “Nightfalls” and it’s out this Thursday”.
Could this be a hint to another ‘part 2’ from Urban that we’ve been waiting on since the release of Urban’s last album, Speed of Now: Part 1 back in September of 2020? The album included hit songs like “One Too Many” with P!nk, “Superman”, “Polaroid”, “God Whispered Your Name”, and “We Were”. The ‘Part 1’ of this project has fans still anxiously waiting for the inevitable ‘Part 2’, and hopefully “Wild Hearts”, released late last summer, and now “Nightfalls” will be the first two singles that lead us into the ‘Part 2’ era.
Today, when announcing the release of “Nightfalls”, Urban shared that “two summers have gone by without touring and the desire to have that feeling again inspired every part of creating this song”. This is exactly the energy we feel throughout the entirety of the song and we can not wait to hear it come alive on stage this summer, hopefully alongside even more new music!
Written by Greg Kurstin, Urban, and Maureen McDonald, “Nightfalls” is a song about living completely in the moment, enjoying time as you go through it, and forgetting any pressures from the past or the future that can threaten enjoying the moment you’re living in right now. “Nightfalls” will have you up on your feet, wanting to be dancing the night away with your person and drunk on each other when the night falls.
“We’ve been through some hard times, I ain’t gonna lie // But I don’t wanna think about it, not with you right here tonight // Who knows if tomorrow, is even gonna come // Stay with me and dance until we see the rising sun // We got lights, we got beer // We got everybody here”
You can be sure to catch “Nightfalls” on the ‘Speed of Now World Tour 2022’ with Ingrid Andress, which will stop in New Jersey on Friday, July 29th at PNC Bank Arts Center and on Long Island on Saturday, October 22nd at UBS Arena.
