In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 50-year-old singer opened up about his racy new track, “Gemini,” written about his wife, Nicole Kidman. So was Kidman in the room when the country singer put his love for her on paper?
“No, that’s why I got so intimate, I’m sure,” Urban told ET’s Sophie Schillaci. “I was missing her, maybe.”
“When I create, rarely do I have a set idea,” he explained. “‘Gemini’ started with the four of us in that room — Ian Kirkpatrick, Justin Tanit and Julia Michaels and myself. Ian had a cool groove going and I started playing guitar and melody starts coming. Justin and Julia are asking me about Nic, ‘Tell us about Nic.’ And I said, ‘Well, she’s a Gemini,’ and they’re like, ‘Ooh.’ And Julia starts singing, ‘Baby, she’s both,’ and the song just started to take off from there.”
“Gemini” is featured off his latest album Graffiti U, the followup to his critically acclaimed album Ripcord.
Urban and Kidman initially met back in 2005 at the G’Day USA Gala honoring Australians. The Nashville sweethearts got hitched the following year, welcoming their first daughter, Sunday Rose, into the world in 2008 and their second daughter Faith Margaret a couple years laters in 2010.
