Keith Urban Says A Future Duets Album With Nicole Kidman Is ‘Not Going To Happen’

Keith Urban is opening up about his latest musical collaborator: his wife, Nicole Kidman, who lends her background vocals to his song, “Female”.

Speaking with ET Canada’s Roz Weston in celebration of his ninth studio album, “Graffiti U” — which debuted No. 1 in Canada and is now certified Gold — the country music superstar reveals that while he loved collaborating with Kidman, it wasn’t easy convincing the “Big Little Lies” star to enter the recording studio.

“She was home,” Urban explains. “I have a studio at the house, so I went and got her and she reluctantly came downstairs. She’s not comfortable singing, but I luckily got her on a microphone.”

Revealing Kidman’s appreciation for the song, he adds, “She loved the song. I got sent the song the day after the three writers had written it. I wasn’t a writer on it. But, it just spoke to me. It spoke to both of us.”

While fans have shared their excitement for the Academy Award winner’s vocals on the country track, Urban confirms that the couple will not be releasing a duets album anytime soon.

“That will not be looming,” Urban contends. “That’s not going to happen. No. No. And I won’t be in ‘Big Little Lies’ either. So, there you go.”

Meanwhile, Urban says it was “amazing” collaborating with rising star Julia Michaels, who helped pen his new single, “Coming Home”.

“She’s absolutely amazing. She’s so inspiring to be around and so fluid in her artistry. It’s just very quick and completely unfiltered,” he says.
