If you thought listening to Keith Urban’s latest single “Coming Home,” featuring pop sensation Julia Michaels, was great, then you’re going to love his new music video!
Written by Urban, J.R. Rotem, Julia Michaels, Merle Haggard and Nicolle Galyon, “Coming Home” is the newest single from the country star’s ninth studio album Graffiti U. On his latest music video, Urban worked with the award-winning director Andy Hines to create a groundbreaking and visually striking video. Whether its was moving through a window from a bedroom to an open field or performing side by side with Julia Michaels, “Coming Home’s” music video is a visual treat.
Watch Urban’s video for “Coming Home” in the clip below:
When deciding on the concept for the video, Urban credits all the dream-like sequences to Hines. “The concept for the video was really Andy Hines’ idea,” said Urban in a press release. “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.”
When it came to writing “Coming Home,” Urban explains that he wanted to pay tribute to country legend Merle Haggard. ““Coming Home” started with an idea I had of using the intro of one of my favorite Haggard songs “Mama Tried,” said Urban. I took the idea to J.R. Rotem and he put some chords around it. I jotted down the first words that the music made me feel, jumped on a mic and sang the chorus.” Urban adds, “Hearing that rolling Haggard guitar lick sparked memories of my childhood - and my dream to come to America.” “I knew right then the story (of the song) was about the struggles of being in a city where your dreams have brought you, but far from your home – wherever, whomever and whatever that is for each of us.”
