Humble Quest is coming Mar 25th
Maren Morris has set her third studio album, Humble Quest, for March 25th via Columbia Nashville. The country superstar shared the news via social media on Thursday (Jan 13th) with photos of the album’s packaging and track listing.
“It turns out, this pandemic did humble me,” Morris pens in a page-long essay included in the album’s liner notes. “Shooting my mouth off one time too many humbled me, the death of a beloved friend and producer humbled me, motherhood and marriage humbled me. ‘Humble’ beagn to feel more like a grounded state of understanding oneself; not so much by being relatable to or understood by all. What I also discovered is that the songs I was managing to compose during this time were the most authentic and light lyrics that have ever flowed from my pen. They weren’t fitting with the times, they were distracting and eventually, saving me from the times.”
The project includes her latest single, “Circles Around This Town,” which was released last week. The album is produced by Greg Kurstin.
The album is the follow up to her 2009 critically-lauded album Girl, which shattered the record for the largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman, with 23.96 million streams in its first week.
