Keith Urban’s Boyfriend Richard Marx Gives Funny Reason ‘One Day Longer’ Came Out Years After He Wrote It

Pals Keith Urban and Richard Marx unveiled their latest collab on Friday, but it’s hardly new to them.

According to Marx, “One Day Longer” is a song they wrote years ago that ended up taking up space in his laptop. One day, the singer-songwriter decided to give it another listen. Now, it’s the first of five country songs from her upcoming album “Songwriter,” which is slated for release on September 30.

“I sent Keith a voice note saying I was releasing ‘One Day Longer’ and he texted me back and he said, ‘I have no memory of that song, but it sounds really good’, The 58-year-old told People Review “He looked like he couldn’t believe we’d write something so good together.”

Marx and Urban have known each other for decades. They wrote partners on several of Urban’s hit songs, including “Everybody”, “Better Life” and “Long Hot Summer”.

“When we write a song, Keith is always ecstatic about it on Mondays and Wednesdays he’s gone,” Marx told the outlet. “It ranges from ‘This is the greatest song ever written by two people’ to ‘I have no interest in this song. So I’m used to the sort of bipolar thing that happens when I write with him.”

According to Marx, Urban was originally in “One Day Longer” – but then something got in the way.

“I remember Keith saying to me… ‘I love this song but I’m really hungry right now and I hate everything when I’m hungry,'” Marx said. “A few days later, he was no longer in it.”

But there is one person who is already a fan of the song: Marx’s wife, Daisy Fuentes. The couple said “yes” in 2015.

“Daisy loves this one,” Marx said. “And I would say that’s not easy with her. She’s honest when it comes to the music I make.”

In June, Urban resumed touring after nearly four years. Earlier, in January, the 54-year-old took over some spots left open by Adele’s cancellation at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Urban’s residency in Las Vegas was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The country music star was only able to perform four shows before the pandemic shut down the live music industry in 2020. The “Blue Ain’t Your Color” singer took over the residency in September 2021.
