Following a successful return U.K. trip earlier this year and Entertainer Of The Year wins for both the CMA and ACM Awards, a feat only achieved in the same year by 14 others, the four-time GRAMMY® Award winner Keith Urban has released the latest single ‘Drop Top’ featuring Kassi Ashton, out now via Caroline.
New single ‘Drop Top’ is taken from his ground-breaking #1 album Graffiti U, and its release follows a successful return to the U.K. that saw Urban embark on his first tour of the UK and Europe in more than a decade. Urban headlined both the C2C festival at the O2 alongside an intimate show at the O2 Kentish Forum which instantly sold out.
Urban, whose received praise from critics during his U.K. and Europe visit for his electrifying and ‘no holds barred’ concerts, has already stormed the charts with his 9th studio album, taking the top spot in the U.S., Canada and Australia, becoming the only solo country artist to achieve this, not once but twice!
Urban’s latest single ‘Drop Top’ revs up a story of driving to Coachella sound tracked by a roaring guitar lead and EDM-inspired bass and equally raucous cameo courtesy of newcomer Kassi Ashton. Keith is always inventing new ways to connect with his audience and ‘Drop Top’ is no exception. “I wrote ‘Drop Top’ with Jimmy Robbins, Josh Osborne, and MoZella. I had this idea for a really simple groove – I grabbed a bass and played it over a beat. MoZella had this idea about a group of girls driving off to Coachella in a drop top Jeep, which gave it a real Summery, fun feel,” says Urban. “It’s born of that. I love concerts, love the whole experience of getting ready, heading over to the venue, experiencing the show and the buzz you feel after.”
