    Keith Urban gets sentimental on his new single, “We Were.”

    The Aussie musician reminisces about an old flame on the song, written by Ryan Tyndell, Jeff Hyde and fellow country singer Eric Church. Urban’s passionate vocals bring the vivid lyrics to life. “We were leather jackets hanging onto a Harley, two heartbeats in the moonlight / We were both feet hanging out over the edge of a water tower skyline,” he sings over banjo and electric guitar

    “When I first heard ‘We Were,’ I not only heard it, but I saw it,” Urban said in a statement. “It made me feel something. The imagery is so strong—a stamp on the back of a hand, a Saturday night cover band, the girlfriend (or boyfriend) we ran with and a fake ID (which, of course, I never had). So many of us can relate, or likely will relate, at some point.”

    “We Were” is Urban’s first new release since he dropped his tenth studio album, Graffiti U, last April. Check it out below:
