Nashville, TN–Bad Realm Records and Atlantic Records breakout talent Breland continues to make waves in country music, enlisting superstar Keith Urban for the new collaboration, “Throw It Back.”
Throwing down a rootsy blast of dance-floor fire, the track finds the two artists partnering for a second time on the banjo-laced banger with a love-drunk theme. Matching Breland’s sheer boldness and dynamic flow with Urban’s effortless charisma and string-bending prowess, “Throw It Back” makes for a true country anthem.
The stars both appear in an official video for the standout collaboration – directed by Bobby Bruderle and filmed at Analog in Nashville’s Hutton Hotel. Both the track and video are available now.
“’Throw it Back’ is the first song Keith and I ever worked on together, and despite it being so sonically left of center, he immediately recognized it as a special song and started adding his iconic flavor to the record,” shares Breland. “You’ll be able to feel my and Keith’s energy flowing not only on the song but in the video, which we helped shape together as well. With the world finally opening up, and live music coming back, I feel like we’ve got a real summer anthem on our hands.”
“Breland is my brother from another mother,” adds Urban. “I love creating with him. Everything is so simpatico and matter of fact – here it is! I’m stoked that a song written from our very first time writing together (June of last year) is finally coming out.”
Marking their second high-profile collaboration, “Throw It Back” follows “Out The Cage,” which featured Breeland and was included on Urban’s The Speed of Now Part 1 album. On the rise since his platinum debut “My Truck” dropped in 2019, Breland’s stable of all-star collaborators also includes Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox, Lauren Alaina, Chase Rice, and Sam Hunt, who was featured on a remix of “My Truck” that The New York Times and NPR recognized as one of the Best Songs of 2020.
Breland will kick off his Cross Country Tour at Bonnaroo Music Festival on September 5, embarking on his first-ever headline tour. The coast-to-coast trek runs through October and tickets for all dates are on sale now.
