Keith Urban announces ‘Graffiti U’ tour, album

Kelsea Ballerini will join Urban on tour

Keith Urban surprised fans Wednesday night (Jan 17th) by announcing a new album and tour for 2018 via Facebook Live. Urban was joined by upcoming tour mate Kelsea Ballerini live from Nashville’s Exit/In. Graffiti U will be Urban’s tenth studio album and will be released sometime this year as the Down Under crooner is “close to finishing.” Meanwhile, the Graffiti U World Tour 2018 will kick off June 15th in St. Louis and span nearly 60 cities throughout North America through November.

During the 30 minute performance, Urban performed hits and offered a taste of new music with “Steal My Thunder,” “Same Heart” and “Texas Time” from Graffiti U. Ballerini joined him toward the end of the performance to perform a cover of Camila Cabello’s “Never Be the Same.” As of press time, it’s unknown whether Urban’s most recent single, “Female,” will be included on the project.
