With three weeks until the official launch of his new album, Keith Urban is keeping the momentum going with the debut of yet another new track from The Speed Of Now Part 1.

Urban takes fans on quite the musical adventure in the just-released track “Tumbleweed.” The banjo-infused track has Urban chasing down a woman with “gypsy ways” and proposes that they join together for some fun.

“Hey, Miss Tumbleweed / I believe two tumbleweeds is better than one / Everybody needs a buddy when they’re on the run,” the Grammy-winner sings on the chorus. “Hey, Miss Tumbleweed / Let’s ride the breeze, town to town / Just kickin’ up dust / Make a little trouble, might make a little love…”

Much like the previously released tracks from the album, “Tumbleweed” mixes country and pop. The genre-bending song fits well within Urban’s wheelhouse as he’s been known to experiment with different sounds throughout his career. It appears the songs on his new album will be no exception.

The Speed Of Now Part 1 will be released on September 18. The 16-track project includes collaborations with Eric Church, P!nk, Breland and Nile Rodgers.
