Keith Urban & Julia Michaels’ “Coming Home” Video Is A Surreal Journey
Keith Urban has been at the forefront of the country-pop movement since dropping Ripcord in 2015. That album combined the country crooner’s trademark Nashville sound with synths and even rap on the Pitbull-assisted “Sun Don’t Let Me Down.” He picks up where he left off, albeit not quite as overtly on 10th LP, Graffiti. After dropping a couple of more traditional buzz tracks (including the Ed Sheeran-penned “Parallel Line”), he teams up with Julia Michaels on his latest single, “Coming Home.”
The video dropped today (May 31) and it’s one of Keith’s most striking visuals to date. “The concept for the video was really [director] Andy Hines’ idea,” the hitmaker says. “He suggested the heightened reality that we see in the video, which keeps it more like a dream — an idea, more than an actuality. It was also important to have Julia there — she’s great energy to be around and I love singing with her, so I wanted us to be on stage at the same time to capture that.” Watch the surreal adventure up top.
