Maren Morris – GIRL
New album “Girl” to be released on March 8, 2019.
New single and video with the title track, “Girl” has been released in January.
Maren Morris: The inspiration for “Girl” really came from a tift I was having with a friend of mine who’s also in the music industry, and is a woman, and we’re actually very similar. We go through the same struggles and I think that, I don’t know if it’s like, each other or society that makes us competitive with each other, but I started this song as almost like a plea to this other woman, like, “Can we please just get our shit together and be cool?” And then, like an hour into the write, I was writing with Sarah Aarons and Greg Kurstin for this song, I had this realization that, no, I’m not writing this to her, I’m writing this to me, and that sucked realizing that because it was honestly me looking in the mirror and being like, “No, this is all your shit. It’s not hers. It’s your insecurity, your bullshit, your complexes.” But it also was super liberating to realize that, and I felt like I could finish the song in an honest place because I owned up to my shit, and knew that it was like, “I need to say this to myself, not to her.”
