Keith Urban has written and recorded a new song titled “For You” to be included in a new movie, Act of Valor. It marks the first time Urban has written and recorded a song specifically for a movie.
He co-wrote the song with Monty Powell and recorded the track in Nashville with co-producer Dann Huff. The track will be available digitally on Feb. 21 and will be played during the film’s end credits.
Act of Valor, a thriller about active-duty Navy SEALS who fight global terrorism, will be released to theaters on Feb. 24. Directed by Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh, active duty Navy SEALs will be featured in the fictional screenplay.
“I loved the challenge of writing for a film,” said Urban. “I’ve never done that before. After seeing Act of Valor, my co-writer and I wanted to capture the essence of not only what these men and women do so extraordinarily, but how that relates to all of us. Valor shows us what they are willing to give their all for, which made me wonder, ’What am I willing to give my life for?’ ’For You’ is intended to allow the listener to define who that is for them.”
