Keith Urban Announces ‘Go Home W U’ Duet With Lainey Wilson [LISTEN]

We now know what Keith Urban meant when he said “5-3-24” at the start of his performance of “Straight Line” at the CMT Music Awards. The New Zealand native just announced his collaboration with “Go Home W U” with Lainey Wilson, out on Friday, May 3.

Urban announced the news on social media, sharing a clip of the new song.

Urban and Wilson previously teased the new song in a video showing Urban giving Wilson a ride to the airport.

“I’m going to Oz,” Wilson says in the video. “I’m excited. I’m nervous.” Urban warned her about snakes and “deadly” redback spiders that “love toilet seats,” before dropping Wilson off.

“Can you sleep on planes?” Urban asked, with Wilson answering, “I’m about to find out.”

“Man, I’m so excited to be going to your home,” Wilson said.

“Honestly?” Urban responded. “I wish I could go home with you. Ooh, that’s a good song title … We should do that. Have a great flight, Lainey.”

Wilson recently opened up about her friendship with Urban, and how he has inspired her and her career.

“He is a mentor of mine,” the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year told The Project. “He’s a friend. He’s that guy that just kind of lifts me up and encourages me every time he sees me. And when you’ve got people like Keith Urban encouraging you and believing in you, you really do feel like you can do it.”

Urban has yet to reveal an album title or release date, but he does say he can’t wait to share it with the rest of the world.

“We’ll keep working our way towards a release date later this year, but I’m psyched to get it out,” Urban told People. “It’s been a very unique journey putting all these songs together and shaping the record. And in a lot of ways, the record shaped itself. It had an energy and momentum of its own that I just started following. And I can’t put that into any other way, but that’s kind of what happened is that it felt like the record told me where to go and how to make it. It’s wild.”

In a now well-known story, Urban had an entirely different record finished, one he scrapped in favor of the new one he is getting ready to share with the world.

“I have a lot of hope,” Urban said of his next project. “And I think my calling has always been inclusivity in what I do. It’s certainly always been that way playing live in concert. My calling is to bring all these different kinds of people together and become one for a couple of hours. And it’s an amazing thing as a musician to be able to get to do that because even a sporting event splits the audience in two.

“But as musicians,” he adds, “we get to bring the most opposing kinds of people together who maybe only agree on this one thing, which is these songs in this moment.”
