Breland gets a little Urban help on "Throw It Back"
Friday, June 4, 2021 – Breland enlisted the help of Keith Urban for the new collaboration, "Throw It Back."
The track finds the two artists partnering for a second time on the banjo-laced song with a love-drunk theme. The singers both appear in an official video directed by Bobby Bruderle and filmed at Analog in Nashville's Hutton Hotel.
"'Throw it Back' is the first song Keith and I ever worked on together, and despite it being so sonically left of center, he immediately recognized it as a special song and started adding his iconic flavor to the record," said Breland. "You'll be able to feel my and Keith's energy flowing not only on the song, but in the video, which we helped shape together as well. With the world finally opening up and live music coming back, I feel like we've got a real summer anthem on our hands."
"Breland is my brother from another mother," said Urban. "I love creating with him. Everything is so simpatico and matter of fact - here it is. I'm stoked that a song written from our very first time writing together (June of last year) is finally coming out."
Breland takes the TV show ET on a behind the scenes of the "Throw It Back" music video today.
"Throw It Back" follows "Out The Cage," which featured Breland and was included on Urban's "The Speed of Now Part 1" album.
Breland first gained notoriety with his PLATINUM debut "My Truck" in 2019. He also has worked with Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox, Lauren Alaina, Chase Rice and Sam Hunt, who was featured on a remix of "My Truck."
Breland released his self-titled debut EP in 2020. He will perform with Mickey Guyton at the 2021 CMT Music Awards (airing Wednesday, June 9), and the pair released a duet version of Breland's self-discovery anthem, "Cross Country."
Breland will kick off his Cross Country Tour at Bonnaroo Music Festival on Sept. 5, embarking on his first-ever headline tour. The coast-to-coast trek runs through October.
