Keith Urban is currently hard at work on his new album, the follow-up to 2018’s Graffiti U, and the superstar isn’t letting genres box him in when it comes to making music.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone Country, Urban explained what fans can expect from his forthcoming project.

“Just whatever that mix is that I do of things. I don’t really think of it in terms of … I couldn’t really label that,” he shared. “It’s a broad mix of songs, genres, styles. There’s guitar stuff in there. There’s lots of everything in there. A bit of everything.”

As he closes in on the two-year mark since Graffiti U, does he feel any pressure to continue to put out new music on a regular basis?

“No, not at all. I couldn’t imagine. I couldn’t put one out every year anyway,” he confessed. “I think you can keep new music coming. I think that’s a better way to be. For someone like me, I like it because it keeps a portal open for new music. Whenever it strikes, you’re gathering songs for this chunk of time, to then have to go in to record doesn’t really, it doesn’t fit me, really.”

On top of working on new music, Keith Urban‘s 2020 will include several trips to Las Vegas for the continuation of his residency and a trip across the pond. Other than that, fans can catch Urban performing at various festivals around the country. Click HERE to see if he’s coming to a city near you.
