Impact: Keith Urban Calls ‘RIPCORD’ His Most Exhilarating Album

By Radio.com Staff

Keith Urban has worked with a who’s who list of big name collaborators for his new album, RIPCORD, due out Friday (May 6).

Urban says his latest effort was his “most exhilarating album to make, both musically and creatively.”

“This album’s journey began back in January, 2015 and took me to a lot of unexplored people and places.” he said. “The end result was the recording and exploring of more songs then I’ve ever done before and carving that down to what I felt constituted RIPCORD.”
