Behind the Scenes Keith Urban’s ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’

KeithUrban004Go Behind the Scenes on Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color” From “Ripcord” Album

Over the course of the 13 songs on his recent Billboard No. 1 album, Ripcord, Keith Urban blurs the lines between country, dance, hip hop, electronica and more.

“There’s new music being made all the time that’s fascinating to me,” Keith said toNCD in May when the album dropped. “It’s sort of like being a chef I guess, you’re always looking for ingredients that could go together but haven’t been put together yet.”

One of the more traditional songs on Ripcord and the album’s fourth single release is the waltzy “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” a Don Williams-inspired tune written by Steven Lee Olsen, Hillary Lindsey and Clint Lagerberg.

“Blue” is basically a waltz with a doo-wop feel,” explains Keith.  “Neither really felt right for me, but there was something in this song that I loved. So we programmed this really cool, simple, drum loop that became the rhythmic bones of the song, providing a yin and yang to the minimalist vocal that I wanted to feature.”

Check out Keith’s thoughts on the song and a behind-the-scenes look into its recording.
