As Keith Urban’s latest hit, “We Were,” continues to climb the charts at country radio, the superstar is taking fans inside the studio with a brand new one-shot music video to accompany the song.

Recorded in a single take with one camera, the new video takes fans along as the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year makes his way from studio to studio performing the song. The clip stars only Urban and its simple concept allows fans to fully focus on the song, rather than a storyline. Check out the brand new video above.

“We Were” is the lead single from Urban’s forthcoming album, which has yet to be announced. The superstar fell in the love with the song the moment he heard it.

“When I first heard ‘We Were,’ I not only heard it, but saw it,” the reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year previously explained. “It made me feel something. The imagery is so strong — a stamp on the back of the hand, a Saturday night cover band, the girlfriend (or boyfriend) we ran with and a fake i.d., which of course I never had.  So many of us can relate or will relate at some point!”

Much to Urban’s surprise, the song was co-written by one of his good friends, Eric Church.

“It got sent to me, not by Eric, but by someone who finds songs for me,” Urban once told Bobby Bones, host of The Bobby Bones Show. “I didn’t know he was a writer, which was really cool, because it wasn’t until we recorded the song, it was all done, and I found out after the fact.”

Urban’s version got full-approval from Church himself, who later shared that he believes the song was meant to be recorded by Urban.
