"Love Songs Ain't For Us" is a song recorded by Australian singer-songwriter Amy Shark, featuring Keith Urban. The song was released on 19 February 2021[1] as the fourth single from Shark's forthcoming second studio album, Cry Forever.
Shark recalls saying "Just before we started the writing session, Ed asked me if I wrote songs about my man, I told him I do, but love songs aren't really for us. He then smiled and said 'ok that's what we'll do then'. I don't know why but I struggle to write straight forward love songs, the second they start sounding too lovey and gushy I tend to follow it up with a lyric that's semi sad or confronting. This song is as loved up as you'll get from me and I love it.  Australian Radio Immediately began playing "Love Songs Ain't For Us", before its Official release to radio, & it's immediate impact across the Hit Network & the Nova Network with plenty of airplay on the KIIS Network, plus plenty of airplay across some Regional Radio Networks getting in, on the act as well. "Love Songs Ain't For Us" is This Week's
Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #41.

Amy Shark is continually kicking goals left, right, and centre, and her new single ĎLove Songs Ainít For Usí is another big moment in her career. Not only does the song feature Australian country music legend Keith Urban, but it was also a co-write between her and Ed Sheeran. HUGE.

With a whole discography of vulnerable tracks that explore heartbreak and mental health, a topic that she doesnít usually open up to in-depth about is her relationship with her husband. So ĎLove Songs Ainít For Usí is an insight into their intimacy and their bond that keeps them together so purely. ďYeah, you know love songs ainít for us. Nothing could explain about the way it hurts so much. But at the same time itís, perfect nights, itís open doors, Itís feeling safe, itís being sure. Itís a deep cut, crazy rush, to feel like usĒ she sings during the chorus.

With a light production guiding listeners throughout the duration, it sounds like the perfect first dance song that will undeniably get used in a lot of weddings to come. Itís a sound that comes quite naturally to Ed Sheeran, and you can certainly hears his influence shining through. But itís a welcomed contrast to the sound that we are used to hearing from Amy Shark. Itís big, sweeping, and simply beautiful, and shows listeners a different side to her vulnerability.

With Keith Urban singing on the track with her, their harmonies are ultimately rich, and give the song a warm layering of emotions. This will become a HUGE track for both artists this year, and will be one you wonít be able to avoid over the next couple of months.
