Keith Urban recently stopped by Nashville’s Sound Stage Studios to record two songs for Spotify Singles, an ongoing series that beckons artists to record original tracks as well as unexpected covers of songs that have inspired them from a wide range of genres.
In addition to recording his current single, “Never Comin’ Down,” Keith put his pipes to Marshmello’s chart-topping dance hit, “Happier.”
“The first time I heard ‘Happier,’ it spoke to me lyrically,” says Keith. “Underneath that badass track, there’s an incredible story of emotional conflict being told. I could really relate to it and so I set about trying to frame that in my own way.”
Listen to Keith’s cover of “Happier.”
