In the “Musical Insights” series, country artists share their thoughts on some of their most popular tunes.
Even though he didn’t write his latest single, “Female,” Keith Urban says it was one he wanted to record as soon as he heard the demo.
“As a father of two daughters – six and nine – as a husband, as a son, it just resonated with me as just a beautiful, poignant prayer in a lot of ways too; a divinely timed piece that really needed to be put into the world,” reveals Keith in a statement from his label.
“When I heard the song the day after it was written, it really moved me very strongly,” Keith continues. “My wife was listening at the same time, and she had the same feeling about the song. I just said I feel very strongly I want to record this song. Luckily, I was in the middle of making my record and we just went in the studio in my house and recorded it.”
“Female” will be on Keith’s forthcoming album, set to drop in 2018.
