Watch Keith Urban Drink Coffee, Contemplate Life, and Find an Album Title

KEITH URBAN released a video of himself trying to come up with the title of his next album.  He settled on “The Speed of Now Part I” . . . but it took him a while to get there.

The video shows his creative process and it starts with him in a recording studio as someone asks what he’s been up to.  He contemplates that as he drinks tons of coffee and has random thoughts about song ideas, riffs . . . and “what if you wrote something illegal on a legal pad?”

The point is that he came up with the title back in October when he was traveling all over the world and “life was flying by fast.”  And yet, the title also fits today’s times when everything has pretty much come to a screeching halt.

“I would never have imagined that, in 2020, this album title would take on a whole new meaning and yet somehow still feel incredible relevant.”

The video also features clips of different songs from the album.  “Speed of Now Part 1” drops September 18th, which is two days after the rescheduled ACMs will be going down.  Keith is the host.
