Keith Urban has revealed the story behind his hit song ‘Wasted Time.’
In the studio with big Producer/’Swiss Army Knife’, Keith states:
“wasted time we only wrote about a month and a half ago, i’d never worked with greg wells or jay Abrahart before.
I knew of Greg but never worked with him before. he is an incredible producer, songwriter, everything, he plays everything.”
As Urban then goes on to refer to Greg as a Swiss Army Knife of the music world.
After asking about drinks and high school memories, which play into what the song is about, he states:
“the idea to look back on your life and go wow, who’d a thunk that we’d live in all that wasted time.”
When talking about who this song is really for, he refers to the lawn at amphitheaters stating:
‘When shaping the chorus, i kept saying everybody on the lawn has to be able to sing this.
cause the lawn is awesome at the amphitheatres, it’s its own party, and we’re just a glorified boombox.”
The creative direction an artist on Urban’s level is tremendous and it is always fun to see the directions they take.
