Keith Urban’s ‘Coming Home’ Is an Upbeat New Song Featuring Julia Michaels
It's been a while since we've had new music from Keith Urban, and now he's "Coming Home." In a Facebook post Monday night (March 19) Urban teases 15 seconds of a new song called "Coming Home," also featuring the vocals of pop singer-songwriter Julia Michaels.
Urban's last record, Ripcord, was released in 2016 and we have been patiently waiting for information about his TBA new album, Graffiti U. The image on the video is stagnant, and likely to be the cover art, which promises "Issues" singer Michaels as Urban's co-artist.
In addition to this catchy snippet, Urban wrote a caption that includes what seem to be lyrics from the song: "There's nothin' in the world that feels like coming home ...", a sentiment that's easy to agree with. Also according to the caption, the song is coming in full on March 21. It's likely to be the second single from Graffiti U.
It's an all-too-quick 15 seconds, but is revealing enough to tell us that Urban's "Coming Home" is a feel-good song about that feeling of returning home to people you love and places you know after being away for some time. It's a business trip, a semester at school, or even a vacation. There's that moment you know you get to go back to the people who know you so well and, as Urban puts it in the song, "Wrap myself around you never let you go."
Though Urban hasn't given a release date for Graffiti U, he did play some of the songs on it during a surprise pop-up show in Nashville earlier in the year. Expect to see "Steal My Thunder," "Same Heart," "Texas Time" and "Parallel Line" when the official track listing is revealed. He also briefly teased new music during a weekend visit to SXSW 2018, where he was a keynote speaker.
