Maren Morris has released a new song, called “Background Music,” which she co-wrote alongside previous collaborators Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz. The song is featured on Maren's upcoming album, Humble Quest, set for release on March 25th.
She said, “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.”
Maren is nominated for Female Artist of the Year at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards, taking place on March 7th in Las Vegas.The show will be streamed live on Amazon Prime beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
