Maren Morris releases new single ‘Background Music’

Grammy-winning superstar Maren Morris shares a new song, “Background Music,” today—listen here. Written by Maren alongside previous collaborators Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz, the song is taken from Morris’ forthcoming album, Humble Quest, slated for release on 25th March on Sony Music Nashville’s Columbia Nashville imprint—pre-add/pre-save it here.

Maren says: “I wrote ‘Background Music’ about the beauty of the temporary, which is inevitably all things. The romanticism of eternity sounds nice, but I like to think I savor things better when I know I’m not entitled to it in perpetuity. It’s a love song that addresses mortality but it’s also promising someone that even when we aren’t cool anymore, I want to grow old with them and laugh about the times we thought we were.”

Additionally, Maren is nominated for Female Artist of the Year at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards.
