Australian country music superstar Keith Urban is keeping himself busy with preparations for his new album ‘Fuse’, set to be released on September 10, 2013, while waiting for the updates on American Idol’s next season. The 45-year-old singer says he does not know anything regarding the show’s 13th season yet.
Not that he has anything to worry about. The ‘You’ll Think Of Me’ singer has plenty of distractions while he waits for the news. He is currently working on his latest album, a follow-up to a highly-successful ‘Get Closer’, released in 2010. With a tour announced for mid-July and the album’s release date scheduled for September 2013, the star is bound to have a few very busy months ahead.
Urban seems to be taking a new approach with ‘Fuse’. As his longtime producer Dann Huff is still very much involved in making of the record, the ‘Long Hot Summer’ singer is branching out and signed up Jay Joyce, Nathan Chapman and Butch Walker to help him create a different sound. The result of new collaborations could be heard on May 13, 2013, when he released his first single, ‘Little Bit of Everything’, to positive reviews.
Apart from making his own music, country powerhouse admits he loves working with artists on AI, seeing their raw talent and beginnings.
