Keith Urban is giving fans a taste of more new music with the release of “Break On Me,” the second single from his upcoming eighth studio album.
After taking the upbeat anthem “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16″ to the top of the country radio charts, Urban is slowing it down with “Break On Me.” It’s the superstar’s first ballad since “Cop Car.”
“I’m so excited about this new single,” Urban said in a video message to fans posted to his Facebook page. “I’m looking forward to you guys getting to hear it and especially looking forward to playing it live, which we’ll be doing very soon.”
“Break On Me,” which was co-written by Ross Copperman and Jon Nite and co-produced by Urban and Nathan Chapman, has a message for the heartbroken.
“Break on me, shatter like glass/Come apart in my hands/Take as long as it takes/Girl, break on me,” Urban sings in the chorus. “Put your head on my chest/Let me help you forget/When your heart needs to break/Just break on me.” (Listen to Keith Urban’s ‘Break On Me’ above.)
Next up for the singer is a performance on The 49th Annual CMA Awards with the legendary John Mellencamp.
