Keith Urban, like all musicians, has been stuck in quarantine and hasn’t been able to tour.

Still, he’s kept busy as he has been working to finish an album of new music.

Urban told Variety how he has managed to stay creative, “Sometimes you hear a piece of advice that sounds so stupid-simple. You’re like, well, duh, but it hits you at a certain time. In my case, a really good friend of mine who I lean on for all kinds of advice in life, I was talking to him on the phone when I was going through that period. And I said, ‘I just feel stuck, honestly. I feel a bit paralyzed.'”

He continued, “And he said, ‘Well, that’s because you’re only focused on everything you can’t do. You literally have listed everything on this call that you can’t do that. I haven’t heard one thing you can do.’ And I said, ‘Well, I can go down to my studio and do some vocals.’ He goes, ‘When are you going to do that?’ ‘Well, I can do that tomorrow.’ And he goes, ‘Great. What else can you do?’ ‘Well, I could write with some people over Zoom.’ ‘Okay. When are you going to do that?'”

Urban added, “And all of a sudden, my whole focus went towards only: What can I do? And I stopped talking about the things I can’t do. And that simple piece of advice just changed everything. It really did; it was was extraordinary.”

Keith just released his new “Superman” video this week.
