Editors’ Notes

Keith Urban takes country out of its comfort zone with Pitbull and Nile Rodgers. The New Zealand native has always pushed the genre’s limits—his 2013 album, Fuse, was inspired by Fall Out Boy and Madonna—but Ripcord is next-level experimentation, mixing backyard banjos, club synths, and classic rock power chords à la Guns N’ Roses. Genre-jumping doesn’t always fly in country music, but star producers Jeff Bhasker and Tyler Johnson keep it from feeling forced or inauthentic. Instead, it sounds like a mega-star testing himself after 25 years in the industry. “I won’t live with regret,” he sings on “Gone Tomorrow (Here Today)," an ode to his father who died in 2015. “Carpe Diem is the secret.”

Customer Reviews


by TJmay20 This album is going to be great. There ain't nothen wrong with a little pop or hip hop-country. I LOVE today's country music... BIGGEST FAN and I've narrowed it down to 5 groups. Country(Chris Stapleton) Today's-Country(Tim McGraw) Rock-Country(Kip Moore) Pop-Country( Sam Hunt) and hip-hop-country( Chris Lane) who is a new artist and has a single called "Fix" that's out right now and is awesome. So this album so far (3 songs) is 4 1/2 stars out of 5. Can't wait. And everybody check out the album "Traveller" by Chris Stapleton. If you like classic country you will LOVE Chris!
