Keith Urban Drops New Song, ‘Parallel Line’ [Listen]
Keith Urban is giving fans a sneak preview of his upcoming album. The country superstar released a new song titled "Parallel Line" online on Friday (Jan. 19).
"Parallel Line" is a love song that juxtaposes a slow electronic beat and rhythmic acoustic guitars, with Urban exploiting his falsetto range in a pop-infused vocal performance.
The song is being released as an official single in Australia, but not in the U.S. It's the first full track we've heard from Urban's forthcoming tenth studio album, Graffiti U, which he announced during a popup show in Nashville on Wednesday (Jan. 17). Urban debuted the song live at that show along with three others from the upcoming album; "Steal My Thunder," "Same Heart" and "Texas Time."

"Take a little bit of my heart tonight / No, I literally don't mind / Just please don't misplace it / Take a little bit of my heart tonight / Baby, be mine now / Baby, be mine now / Maybe it's time we / Put our hearts in a parallel line," Urban sings on the chorus of "Parallel Line."
Urban will also hit the road on 2018 for his Graffiti U Tour, which is slated to launch on June 15 in St. Louis, Mo. The tour will run for 58 shows in the U.S. and Canada before wrapping up in November, and Kelsea Ballerini is joining Urban on the road as his support act.
Graffiti U will see release in 2018, but no official date has been announced.
