Keith Urban releases new single ‘We Were’

“We Were” was co-written by Eric Church

After teasing his return to the recording studio, reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban has released his new single. “We Were” is a reflective, mid-tempo ode to mischievous youth.

“I like the idea that life just happens,” says Urban. “At some point, whether in the moment or not, you just gotta go with it.”

The track’s emotive emotive and picturesque lyrics elicit memories to which most can relate. This, as Urban says, is what drew him to the song. “When I first heard ‘We Were,’ I not only heard it, but saw it. It made me feel something. The imagery is so strong — a stamp on the back of the hand, a Saturday night cover band, the girlfriend (or boyfriend) we ran with and a fake i.d., which of course I never had. So many of us can relate or will relate at some point!”

“We Were” was written by Ryan Tyndell, Jeff Hyde and Eric Church and was co-produced by Keith Urban and Dann Huff.

The song appears on Urban’s forthcoming UMG Nashville release, expected later this year.
