Maren Morris Drops New Song “Background Music”

Maren Morris drops new song, “Background Music,” out now, February 11th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

“Background Music” is the second single from Maren Morris off her forthcoming album Humble Quest. The release follows “Circles Around This Town”. Humble Quest is Morris’ third studio album and is set to be released on March 25th.

“Background Music” is a beautiful ballad that reminds us just how incredibly talented Morris is as not only a vocalist but as a songwriter. The song is written as a two-sided love letter to both her husband, fellow singer-songwriter and “Chasing After You” duet partner – Ryan Hurd, and to her work – which she is admittedly so fortunate to be able to do.

“Hard not to see we’re the lucky ones // Not everybody gets to leave a souvenir”

The song expresses a realization that both their time here on Earth together, as well as their time being able to do what they love in their careers, are not things that will last forever. So as they grow together and as they grow as artists, they should just be enjoying the moment as much as they can, because they simply don’t know how long they will be able to do so. However, one thing that they can be certain about, is that they will love each other until whenever that end is. 

“We got time but we’re only human // We call it forever but we know that there’s an end to it // You and I can dance our way through it // And I’ll love you ‘til all that we are is background music”
