Keith Urban released a new video for his single, “God Whispered Your Name.” Penned by James Slater, Shy Carter, Micah Carter and Chris August, “God Whispered Your Name” is Keith’s first new music in 2020.
The new video juxtaposes Keith in the isolation of a dark room (warehouse in Nashville) with the expansiveness of performing atop a boulder on mountainous terrain (outside Lancaster, Calif.).
“I wanted to first try and capture a sense of isolation, a lonely, dark place, that transitions into light a bit more as the video progresses, which for me is how I found my own world opening up as I went along my journey,” says Keith. “That dark and lonely place, was underneath a warehouse in Nashville, literally the darkest, dank and smelly place. We spent the whole morning there shooting everything that you now see in the first part of the video.”
The second part of the almost-four-minute clip finds Keith jamming atop a boulder, which had some inherent risks.
“Playing guitar atop a boulder is definitely not a great idea,” adds Keith “You just kinda lose yourself in what you’re doing, and every minute or two you realize what you’re doing, and you think, ‘I better not fall off this big ass boulder!’ For me, a good music video takes the song to another level. It maybe gives the song a bit more dimension, and hopefully we’ve done that with this one.”
