Urban releases "God Whispered Your Name" video

Thursday, April 2, 2020 – Keith Urban has released a video for his new single "God Whispered Your Name."

Directed by Jennifer Massaux, Urban said, "I wanted to first try and capture a sense of isolation, a lonely, dark place, that transitions into light a bit more as the video progresses, which for me is how I found my own world opening up as I went along my journey."

The video had its challenges. "That dark and lonely place, was underneath a warehouse in Nashville, literally the darkest, dank and smelly place. We spent the whole morning there shooting everything that you now see in the first part of the video."

"There was water in this room that I thought was like an inch deep," said Urban. "So, I opened the door, walked in and it was really about a foot. The first idea I had was to put my feet and socks into a garbage bag - tie them up and put my shoes on. I'd have my foot, my sock, a garbage bag and then my shoe - it made so much sense - but the water went everywhere. At the end of the shoot I took my boots off and they were drenched - probably as much water in the bag as there was in the waterway."

During the video, Urban played his guitar while balanced atop a boulder on a mountainscape located just outside of the small town of Lancaster, Cal. "Playing guitar atop a boulder is definitely not a great idea. You just kinda lose yourself in what you're doing, and every minute or two you realize what you're doing, and you think, 'I better not fall off this big ass boulder.'"

"For me, a good music video takes the song to another level. It maybe gives the song a bit more dimension and hopefully we've done that with this one."

CD reviews for Keith Urban

CD review - Graffiti U It's telling how two songs on Keith Urban's "Graffiti U" album chug along to a reggae beat because pop rhythms and non-country elements are the obvious inspirations for this collection. Opener "Coming Home" may borrow (steal?) a guitar riff from Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried," but this is where that country road begins and ends. Urban follows "Coming Home" with "Never Comin' Down," which is introduced with a funky bass line ...
CD review - Ripcord Even though Keith Urban's single, "Wasted Time," borrows more than a little sonic sensibility from electronic music, there's still an upfront banjo solo. And this is how it's always been with Urban. He may play the part of the guitar hero at times, and even revealed his eclectic musical knowledge as a judge on American Idol, but Urban will always be a country boy at heart. And boyish good looks and talent have taken this country boy far, too. The wonderfully titled ...
CD review - Fuse Keith Urban will keep his superstar status intact with the lengthy "Fuse." The upbeat, commercial- and fan-friendly music and singing from Urban will ensure that. This is pretty much vintage Urban. That means Urban's not very high on the country quotient. What sounds like a guitar on the rocking Good Thing and the somewhat swampy Red Camaro, for example, is Mike Elizondo's programming. Yes, there's gango (six-stringed banjo with guitar neck) sprinkled in many songs, but ...
