Keith Urban has kept up a busy schedule as a new judge on American Idol this season, but he's also carved out time to work on his next album in the past few months. Though he's recorded a lot of songs for the new project, Keith doesn't have one single theme for the album worked out just yet.
"It's just sort of having all the ones that seem to constitute an album starting to come together," Keith says of the record-making process. "But I also like a lot of diversity to, so I think the record will have plenty of that."
Keith adds that his live show has plenty of diversity too. While American Idol is showing the auditions that took place this past summer, Keith is using the opportunity to tour Australia January 25 through February 3 with shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Catch Keith on American Idol Wednesday night at 8 Eastern time on Fox.
