Maren Morris Reflects on Sturdy Relationships in New Single ‘The Bones’ [LISTEN]
Maren Morris' new single "The Bones" is a reflection on sturdy relationships: No matter what else is going on around it, the people in that partnership can rely on each other, and know that nothing can shake them. Readers can press play above to hear the new track.
A light guitar line opens "The Bones" before a steady beat, finger snaps and a piano line chime in near the chorus. "When the bones are good, the rest don't matter / Yeah, the paint could peel / The glass could shatter / Let it rain / You and I remain the same," Morris sings. "The house don't fall when the bones are good."
Written by Morris, Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz, "The Bones" is Track No. 12 of 14 on Girl, Morris' sophomore album. She says the process of capturing her life experience in songwriting truthfully has been her mission in creating her second album.
"A banjo or fiddle doesn't make a country song," Morris reflects, "it's the core-cutting truth that does."
"The Bones" will officially go for adds at country radio on Aug. 26. Girl, released in March, also contains Morris' recent No. 1 single, "Girl." Morris co-wrote all 14 songs on the project.
