In line with the follow up to his 2013 release, Keith Urban is expected to release a new album by next year, as he is reportedly working on a new release this year.
In a report by Billboard , the country singer is now working on his ninth studio release after he is doing early production for the record.
“Just starting work on the next record.
I’m sort of doing the preliminary work of figuring out what the next record is,” Urban said in a statement.
The 47-year-old singer further revealed that he is still unsure about what fans should expect from his LP.
“It’s reaching out and talking with people about working with them in the studio, different writers.
It’s just lots of ideas and tinkering right now,” Urban continued.
“I sort of like the unknowingness of it.
I get in the studio and don’t know what we’re gonna do, and that can be enlightening and sort of revelatory, or it can be incredibly frustrating.” He further revealed that although the release date is not 100 percent sure for now, a tour should be expected from him after the release.
“It depends on who you ask,” he admits, laughing.
“I would say I would like to not have a timetable, but we do have to have an opening night for a tour to follow.”
