Listen to Keith Urban’s New Haggard-Inspired Tune, “Coming Home”

With the release of new song, “Coming Home,” Keith Urban has given fans the second sampling of music from his upcoming album, Graffiti U.

The new tune, which features vocals from Julia Michaels, utilizes a riff from one of country music’s most iconic songs, “Mama Tried” by Merle Haggard.

“Coming Home” was co-penned by Keith, J.R. Rotem, Julia Michaels and Nicolle Galyon, as well as Merle Haggard.

“Hearing that rolling Haggard guitar lick sparked memories of my childhood—and my dream to come to America,” said Keith, who was born in New Zealand and raised in Australia. “I knew right then the story [of the song] was about the struggles of being in a city where your dreams have brought you, but far from your home—wherever, whomever and whatever that is for each of us.”

Before releasing the new song, Keith reached out to Merle’s widow, Theresa Haggard, and son, Ben, for their blessings.

“I called Theresa Haggard and Ben Haggard to play them what we’d been working on,” said Keith. “It was important to me to have their blessing—and I’m so grateful that they love the song.”
