Keith Urban has released a new single titled “Wasted Time.”
The song was co-written by Urban, Greg Wells, and James “JHart” Abrahart and was co-produced by Grammy Award winning producer Greg Wells (Adele, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams) and Urban.
“I worked with a lot of new people on RipCORD, and Greg was one I’d wanted to work with for a long time,” Urban says in a press release. “He’d been writing a lot with J., and so the three of us spent a couple days at Greg’s studio to jam and see if we clicked. Greg had this cool chord progression, and I grabbed my guitar and started singing a melody. J. suggested the title, and before we knew it, we were talking about growing up and all the things you do, no matter where you are in the world, and the song just took off from there.”
