When the four-time GRAMMY Award winner revealed the track listing for his September 18th album release THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1 on August 7th, little did he know that worldwide social media chatter would erupt because of faded yellow blocks placed next to songs, â€œOut The Cageâ€ and â€œOne Too Many.â€ Fans from around the globe, quipped, speculated about collaborators and exhibited the tell-tale signs of FOMO.
Today, the chatter ends as Urban reveals that â€œOut The Cage,â€ the albumâ€™s opening track, highlights a collaboration withÂ BrelandÂ and the legendary guitaristÂ Nile Rodgers, while â€œOne Too Manyâ€ featuresÂ the incomparable P!nk.Â Â An alternate version of â€œWe Were,â€ features the songâ€™s co-writer,Â Eric Church.
As the collaborators were announced Urban explained, â€œWhen I collaborate, Iâ€™m always looking for that â€˜third thing.â€™ Â Thereâ€™s what I do, thereâ€™s what my collaborator does and then thereâ€™s this â€˜third thingâ€™ that Iâ€™m most curious about. Â Thatâ€™s what interests me the most – when the sum of the parts becomes even more than what I envisioned.Â Thatâ€™s what I love so much about it – finding common ground, shaping it and bringing it together.â€
