With  Keith Urban‘s latest single “Cop Car,” the country singer was trying to make a different kind of love song.

In an interview at the Apple Store in New York City last year, on the day his album Fuse was released, Urban said he just loved the song as soon as he heard it and knew it would stand out in the endless sea of love songs.

“It’s very hard to find new ways to serve love songs. They’ve all been done, you know? We’ve heard them all,” Urban said. “But never have I heard the song written from the point of view of a guy who’s in the back of a cop car with handcuffs on, watching a girl go completely redneck crazy at the cops. And he’s like, ‘I am getting so turned on right now.’ So, I love that song.”

Urban told that in order for him to cut a song that he hasn’t written himself — “Cop Car” was written by Zach Crowell, Sam Hunt and Matt Jenkins — he has to relate to it.

“People send me a lot of songs, and I hear a lot of songs, but it’s the ones that I have an immediate reaction to,” Urban said. “Certainly a song like ‘Come Back To Me.’ I just love the lyric, and I know those people in the song–both the guy and the girl.”

The singer, who is currently on tour, said his unconventional love song is just one of the many standout moments on his latest album, which to him is much bigger than anything he’s ever recorded.

“This one [Fuse], probably more so than any of the albums we’ve ever done, feels like a concert experience,” Urban said.
