May 6 marks exactly one year since the release of Keith Urban’s ninth studio album, Ripcord. The experimental album features the No. 1 hits “Break on Me,” “Wasted Time,” and “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” But aside from the radio hits, Ripcord features a track listing full of surprising, moving and infectious tracks.
The record kicks off with the high-energy song “Gone Tomorrow, Here Today.” It’s all about living in the moment and not letting life pass you by. That’s a sentiment that can be found weaved into tracks from across Urban’s career. From “Where The Blacktop Ends” to “We Were Us,” his focus on the freeing, fleeting moments in life has been praised by fans.
In the video below, Urban explains the inspiration and creative process that helped bring the song to life.
Urban has a string of festival dates scheduled through the summer in support of Ripcord. You can find a full list of upcoming concert stops via his official website.
