Over the course of his three-decade career, Keith Urban has never released a Christmas song—until now. Today (Dec. 5), Keith dropped his first-ever yuletide tune, “I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight,” a song he penned with Shane McAnally.
“I’ve always wanted to record a Christmas song, but I really wanted to try and write something new,” says Keith. “So, Shane came to my house and we wrote, really about a Christmas gone terribly wrong. No snow. Too much fog. Nobody can make it to the party. It’s going to be a colorless Christmas, until her man comes through.”
Keith also released a new video for “I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight,” which was directed by Chris Hicky.
“I wanted to keep the video loose and a bit more performance-based than the actual story line, because everybody has their own version of what a song should look like, so I didn’t want to touch on that too much,” says Keith.
