GET CLOSER (Keith Urban album)


Get Closer (Keith Urban album) – 2010

Get Closer is the seventh studio album by Australian country music artist Keith Urban. It was released 16 November 2010 on Capitol Nashville. It produced three singles between 2010 and 2011, all of which went to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

The lead single, “Put You in a Song”, was co-written by Keith Urban along with fellow artists Sarah Buxton (who co-wrote Urban’s 2006 single “Stupid Boy”) and Jedd Hughes. From October 26 (Urban’s 43rd birthday) to November 9, 2010, one track from the album was released to the US iTunes Store each week (a trend Urban’s previous album Defying Gravity followed). Those songs were “Without You”, “Long Hot Summer”, and “You Gonna Fly” respectively. These three songs (beginning with “Long Hot Summer”) were released to the Australian iTunes store on October 22, October 29, and November 5, 2010. The full album was released on November 12 in Australia.

“Without You”, “Long Hot Summer”, and “You Gonna Fly” were all released as the album’s second, third, and fourth singles in 2011 and they all reached number one on the country charts. Urban co-produced the studio tracks with Dann Huff, and the live bonus tracks with Chris McHugh.
