Keith Urban’s new single, “Coming Home,” features pop star Julia Michaels and the nostalgic track has the two singers reminiscing about their home towns. In a new behind-the-scenes clip, Keith and Julia take fans on set for the making of the video, which was filmed at The Cowboy Palace in California.
“We are at what is officially known as the last real honky tonk — Cowboy Palace in Chatsworth,” the country singer explains to cameras while seated beside his duet partner. “It’s a really super cool vibe. It’s been a fun day.”
The video itself is a blend of locations and thanks to a green screen, Keith is shown getting into a cab in what appears to be Tokyo. Andy Hines directed the clip and explains that he wanted viewers to be taken on a journey throughout the video.
“I wanted to take the viewer and the listener on an audio visual experience,” Andy explains. “We don’t know if what we’re looking at is a reality, or a dream, or we just step through a door into a different reality.”
Julia shares that it was an “awesome day” of shooting while Keith adds that he wrote the song with Julia, J.R. Rotem, Nicolle Galyon, and Merle Haggard. “I hope you guys love the video,” he concedes.
Keith will be singing his new single for audiences throughout the nation as he kicks off his Graffiti U World Tour on Friday (June 15). Kelsea Ballerini will serve as an opener throughout the trek while Lindsay Ell will join the singer on his Canadian tour dates.
Ahead of his tour, Keith is also sharing a glimpse behind the scenes as he prepares during rehearsals with his band. While he didn’t give too much away, he hints that the show will have a change of scenery.
