Keith Urban and Lainey Wilson Sing About Late-Night Small-Town Revelry on ‘Go Home W U’

“Before we knew it, we were writing a chorus that could be sung by any drunk person in any bar anywhere in the world,” Urban says of latest single from upcoming album

Keith Urban takes Lainey Wilson partying in a small town on “Go Home W U,” the latest single from Urban’s upcoming new album.

The upbeat track is an ode to weekend drinking and late-night revelry, with the two country stars trading verses about how the night should end.

“I wrote ‘Go Home W U’ in 2020 with Breland, Sam [Sumser] and Sean [Small],” Urban said of the track in a statement. “We had a blast writing it. It started out as a late-night drum loop, I grabbed a bass guitar and started playing a simple recurring bass line. Before we knew it, we were writing a chorus that could be sung by any drunk person in any bar anywhere in the world.”

Urban added, “A friend of mine suggested the idea of making the song a duet and I immediately thought of Lainey. Besides the fact that I love her voice, she’s got the swagger and attitude that fit so well with the song.”

On the track, Urban sings, “I got some Titanic friends / Yeah, we all get wrecked / Order anything we want from the bottom shelf / Livin’ large in a small-town bar.”

“Keith has been someone in the industry I’ve taken notes from for a while now,” Wilson said in a statement. “From watching him at CMA Fest every year growing up to hearing the way he treats people up and down Music Row, he has taught me a lot. He’s a genuine supporter of mine and I am honored I get to continue to learn from one of the best.”

Urban previously previewed his new album — his first in four years — with the singles “Straight Line” and “Messed Up As Me.” Wilson most recently released her new song “Country’s Cool Again” in February shortly after winning the Best Country Album Grammy.
