Keith Urban’s New Video Brings ‘Cop Car’ Romance to Life

By Kurt Wolff

Have you ever spent time in the back of a cop car? It’s not exactly a romantic setting. But in Keith Urban‘s latest single “Cop Car,” romance is exactly what blossoms back there.

Written by Zach Crowell, Sam Hunt, Matt Jenkins,”Cop Car” is the latest single from Urban’s 2013 album Fuse. And today (Jan. 27) he released a new video for the song. Watch it below:

The song takes the unique point of view of a guy who doesn’t mind the fact he’s about to get arrested, as it’s in the backseat of a police cruiser alongside his girlfriend — handcuffs tight and the car’s flashing blue lights creating a surreal backdrop — that he realizes he’s in love. “You were so innocent, but you were stealing my heart,” Urban sings, his sweet voice lifting upward as if floating on a warm breeze. “I fell in love in the back of a cop car.”
