Keith Urban New Album Announced, American Idol 2014 Fate Still Unknown
Keith Urban still has no idea if he will be returning for American Idol 2014, but he isn’t sitting around twiddling his thumbs while he waits to find out. The country music star has announced he will have a new album, Fuse, coming out on September 10.
"I have no official information of anything," Keith Urban said, according to FoxNews.com. "I'm pretty much in the same boat as everybody else here with the rumors that have been floating around. I don't know anything more about what's happening next season. It was like this before I signed on ... so it's not unusual for the Idol folks to be in this place of figuring out what they want to do, then they always pull it together."
Even if he doesn’t have another American Idol judges gig lined up, Keith has plenty of other projects to worry about. Not only does he have to finish up recording tracks for Fuse, he is also headed out on tour in mid-July. Regardless of his other musical responsibilities, however, Keith Urban would jump at the change to sign on for American Idol Season 13.
"I love artists. I love the beginnings of artists when all they've got is raw talent and nothing else. They've got no star power, just nothing going on but just this raw talent that's just beautiful to see,” Urban said.
