Today marks the release of the brand-new music video for Keith Urban’s “Coming Home,” which features one of the song’s co-writers Julia Michaels. It’s the newest single from the four-time Grammy Award winner’s #1, ninth studio album GRAFFITI U. Urban, who has won countless awards, for his music videos worked with the award-winning director Andy Hines (Logic featuring Khalid and Alessia Cara, Big Sean featuring Kanye West and John Legend, Kali Uchis, Jim James, etc.) – the first time that the two have collaborated.
The groundbreaking, surreal creation, seamlessly delivers Urban from one scene to another and is both visually striking and creatively adept. Whether moving through a window from a bedroom to an open field or a cab headed for a makeshift “Little Tokyo” or performing side by side with Julia Michaels, while watching, “Coming Home’ is a visual treat.
“The concept for the video was really Andy Hines’ idea,” said Urban. “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.”
“Being on set with Keith was magical. He’s a rare person on and off set- full of love and positive energy. He surrounds himself with like-minded people such as his band who were incredible as well. I’m grateful to be a part of this video and grateful to be able to call this kick-ass human, a friend.”
“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.”

“Hearing that rolling Haggard guitar lick sparked memories of my childhood – and my dream to come to America,” added Urban. “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.”
Urban is currently in production rehearsals in Nashville, readying himself for his 62-city “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018,” which kicks off on June 15th at St. Louis’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre.
“Coming Home” was written by Urban, J.R. Rotem, Julia Michaels, Merle Haggard and Nicolle Galyon and was co-produced by Rotem and Urban.
