JP Saxe has joined forces with reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Maren Morris for his new single, a duet titled Line by Line. You can listen to the track here or watch the video below.
Grammy Award nominated JP Saxe wrote the song with Morris and Jimmy Robbins, with the Canadian singer-songwriter hoping the track will hit the same highs as his previous duet – If the World Was Ending, featuring Julia Michaels.
Speaking about the song, Saxe praised Morris as one of his favourite artists, while Morris opened up about the song meaning and how everything came together.
“My first thought about this song is that it’s surreal I get to be sharing it with one of my favourite artists ever,” Saxe said. “Regarding what it’s about…as songwriters, we spend a lot of our lives trying to bottle up a feeling into a song, and often, the biggest feelings, the best ones… the complicated, detailed, messy, incredible ones… just aren’t going to fit.
“Line by Line is our recognition of that… of how one song just isn’t enough to capture it all, but how we’re just going to keep writing, futilely and lovingly, anyway.”
“I have always loved being contemplative of the artist vs. muse relationship in songs,” Morris added. “Line by Line acts as a promise that I’ll never be done writing about my muse in this life because he can’t be summed up in one song.
“Writing that day with JP was the most fluid, inspiring session. He’s a lyrical faucet. He threw out the line ‘immortalising my sincerity’ and it blew my mind. I think all in all, we wrote the whole song in an hour and immediately recorded it”
