Keith Urban Will "Put You In A Song" Sept. 13

Capitol Records Nashville announced today that Keith Urban’s new release, Get Closer, will be released Nov. 16. But you’ll be able to hear the first single, “Put You In A Song”, on Sept.13 when it's released to radio.
Urban is a 2010 CMA Entertainer and Male Vocalist of the Year nominee and a three-time Grammy Award winner. “Put You In A Song” was co-written by Urban, Sarah Buxton and Jedd Hughes and is co-produced by Dann Huff and Urban.
“I’ve always loved songs about ‘the guy in love with the unattainable girl’, said Urban of “Put You In A Song." “And the idea that the only chance that this poor guy is ever going to have to get close to the object of his affection is to put her in a song, just struck me. That way he’d be able to take her with him everywhere he and night.”
Urban added, “On my way to write with Jedd (Hughes) and Sarah (Buxton), I stopped by this music shop and bought a bouzouki. I got it out of the case, we got a great groove going on the drum machine, I started playing the opening riff and the song just took off.”
Get Closer  follows Urban’s Billboard Top 200 No. 1 Defying Gravity album, which also produced two No. 1 singles, including "Only You Can Love Me This Way" and “Sweet Thing,” for which Urban won his third Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance).
Urban is currently in the studio in Nashville, putting the finishing touches on Get Closer.
