With the November release of his new single, “Female,” Keith Urban gave fans the first taste from his upcoming—and as of yet unannounced—10th studio album.
Keith heard the empowering tune on Oct. 11, one day after it was penned by Nicolle Galyon, Ross Copperman and Shane McAnally. On Oct. 31, Keith recorded the song that boldly tackles themes of misogyny and rape culture—especially heavy topics when compared to the Top 40 stylings of recent No. 1 hits like “Body Like a Back Road” and “All the Pretty Girls.”
“I had an immediate reaction to ‘Female’—as a father of two daughters, as a husband, as a son, it just resonated with me,” says Keith to Nash Country Daily. “I went and grabbed my acoustic guitar and started playing it right away.”
