‘Get Closer’ to Keith Urban
Thirteen years after entering the world of country music with his debut album “In the Ranch,” Keith Urban has released his eighth album.
“Get Closer,” which was released on Nov. 16, takes a step away from the almost-pop style of Urban’s last album, “Defying Gravity,” and a step back toward his country roots. Songs such as “You Gonna Fly” and his latest hit single “Put You in a Song” closely resemble the style of his older albums, “Golden Road” and “Be Here.”
As in previous hits, love and relationships are common themes in Urban’s new tracks. With lines such as, “Just like the autumn leaves, I’ve fallen for you,” in the love ballad “All for You,” Urban is likely to capture the hearts of his fans once again.
As always, Urban’s well-known guitar skills are the main element throughout much of the album. “Georgia Wood” contains a nearly two-minute-long guitar solo. Other songs, such as “Without You,” show off his softer side with the perfectly paired picking of an acoustic guitar and a banjo.
Although the Australian-native’s new album only consists of eight new tracks, Target is offering an extended version, which includes three bonus tracks, as well as four live tracks. For more information on Keith Urban and his latest album, “Get Closer,” visit www.keithurban.net.
