Keith Urban released his first Christmas song, “I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight” yesterday.
Keith says, “I’ve always wanted to record a Christmas song, but I really wanted to try and write something new. 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.”
The song’s video was directed by one of Urban’s longtime video collaborators Chris Hicky. It depicts several Keiths, snow falling, simultaneously playing piano, guitar and bass. He says, “I wanted to keep the video loose and a bit more performance-based than the actual storyline, because everybody has their own version of what a song should look like, so I didn’t want to touch on that too much.”
