The biggest country music sensation and one of our favorites, Maren Morris, is returning after a long wait. Could there be anything better? We are ecstatic to announce that after spawning a string of smashing hits one after another, Maren is finally dropping her highly-anticipated studio album, Humble Quest, on 25th March via Columbia Nashville. The 11-track album is led by the latest single, ‘Circles Around This Town,’ and follows up the previous studio album, Girl, released in 2019.
While we enjoyed her stunning collaborations with mega artists such as John Mayer, Taylor Swift, JP Saxe, Ryan Hurd and jammed to them on a loop, we eagerly awaited new music from Maren. If you are just as enthusiastic as we are for Humble Quest, here’s what you all need to know!
After Maren Morris emerged as a powerhouse in traditional country music, many wondered if she would ever venture into pop music. And when it happened, we jammed it, we savored it, and we craved for more, but here is the plot twist: she is a country music purist at heart; a true traditionalist who is devoted to composing and delivering authentic country music.
Putting her best foot forward, Maren Morris is returning with a new album, Humble Quest, on March 25 via Columbia Nashville and is ready to slay the world once again. Pre-save here to not miss!
The lead single, ‘Circles Around This Town,’ is a feel-good tune we have been grooving to since last week and is already soaring to new heights as it became the most-added single at country radio in its premiere week. In 2021, Maren teased her fans with behind-the-scenes updates while interacting with her fans about the new music she had been working on for a long time. But things took a serious turn when she posted a teaser from her album three weeks ago, captioning it, “Pedal down, 2022.”
A pretty clever way to stir things up and get fans pumped up, isn’t it?
The Cover Art
From her intensely red-hued aesthetic Hero album cover to her spring-inspired bright floral artwork for Girl, Maren’s cover artwork encapsulates the essence of her previous albums. This time, things are darker and a little more seductive. Taking a dip in the pool, Maren is rocking an ivory gown as she wears light makeup with a sultry wet look looking flawlessly sensuous, illuminating the surroundings. Is this a metaphoric reflection of something? As she swims through her thoughts chronicling her long journey in the upcoming album, we envision all the puzzle pieces fitting together perfectly.
Take a look at what Maren brings to the table as she drives ‘Circles Around This Town’ and she embarks on a ‘Humble Quest’ with her ‘Good Friends’ playing ‘Background Music,’ and feeling a little ‘Nervous’ thinking ‘What Would This World Do?’
Maren Morris comes with 11 new songs on her new record, and we are eager to hear how her story unfolds throughout. Produced by her friend and frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin, the album features her husband Ryan Hurd and top-notch songwriters like Julia Michaels, Jimmy Robbins, Natalie Hemby, Laura Veltz, and Jon Green on Busbee’s piano. These all already sound like the finest recipe for the best album for 2022 that is Humble Quest. So get ready to devour one of the most delicious meals… ah, we meant the most fun album ever.
Check the tracklist below:
What To Expect!
Humble Quest is a lyrical recounting of her endeavors to reconceive humbleness amidst a devastating pandemic. Maren describes how she embraces imperfections, her highs and lows, motherhood, abrupt changes in her career, being a share-a-holic during wine-soaked chats, pandemic’s darkness, and the death of her friend and collaborator Michael Busbee. Maren explains that after an epiphany made her realize she never had any control over circumstances in the first place, she wrote the most genuine and emotional songs she has ever written, giving her a new perspective on life.
We can’t express enough how excited we are to embark on this quest with Maren, and we are looking forward to its release. Is March coming early?
