Keith Urban brands Ariana Grande’s We Can’t Be Friends ‘audible heroin’

Keith Urban has dubbed Ariana Grande’s infectious hit ‘We Can’t Be Friends’ “audible heroin”.

The 56-year-old country music star is addicted to the superstar’s pop hit and can’t stop playing it.

He told PEOPLE: “I don’t know what is going on with that song, but I cannot stop playing it. It’s like audible heroin. Literally, I have to have another hit.

“I play that thing over and over and over.”

The Australian singer – who has just announced his third Las Vegas residency, ‘High’ – also can’t get enough of Taylor Swift’s new record, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’.

He said: “I mean, God, Taylor’s songwriting, it’s so extraordinary. There’s really no adjectives for it.

“She’s such a great, great writer. So this new album is just more proof of that in really great ways.”

Keith and his family are huge Swifties, and he previously shared his kids excitement when he got a text from the ‘Fortnight’ hitmaker to appear on her re-recorded album ‘Fearless’.

He appears on two tracks on ‘Fearless’ (Taylor’s Version), ‘We Were Happy’ and ‘That’s When’, and Sunday, 15 and Faith, 13 – whom he has with wife Nicole Kidman – were thrilled that their father was in contact with the ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker.

The star also revealed that he was doing last-minute Christmas shopping in Australia when Taylor sent him the request.

Speaking on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ in 2021, Keith recalled: “I’m at the shopping mall doing my Christmas shopping and I get a text from Taylor saying, ‘I’ve got these couple of songs I’d like you to sing on, do you want to hear them?’ And I said, ‘Sure’.

“So she sends me these songs and I’m sitting in the food court at the shopping centre listening to these two unreleased Taylor Swift songs.

“It was an unusual place to be hearing unreleased Taylor Swift music but I love the songs and luckily got to put a vocal on both of those.”
