Maren Morris is releasing her new album, Humble Quest on 25th March via Sony Nashville. The album features lead single, ‘Circles Around This Town’ and 10 other songs from the Grammy-winning superstar.
She began writing the songs on Humble Quest at the beginning of the pandemic as a series of major life changes unfolded—new motherhood, an upended career, the death of beloved friend and collaborator Michael Busbee and more, further compounded by the lockdown.
She felt control over life quickly slipping until she had a freeing realization—she was never in control in the first place. It’s from this place of personal truth and clarity amid darkness that Maren’s most genuine songs yet began to flow, creating an important distraction from the times rather than a snapshot of them.
Maren found herself reckoning with humility in ways she’d never imagined, as she thought about how the goal of appearing humble puts artists - especially women - in a box with unrealistic demands to keep them small.
It's Morris' first studio album since the release of her 2019 album, Girl.
Written on Busbee’s piano alongside her husband Ryan Hurd plus familiar names including Natalie Hemby, Laura Veltz and Jon Green, Humble Quest finds Maren on a journey to embrace the imperfections in her life, through snapshots of her rises and falls, overshares, lullabies, wine-soaked conversations with an old friend and a final goodbye to another one.
