Maren Morris Releases New Album “Humble Quest”: Streaming
American country music singer-songwriter Maren Morris released her third major-label studio album “Humble Quest” on March 25, 2022 via Columbia Nashville.
The album comprises 11-track, co-written by Maren Morris and produced by Greg Kurstin.
She began writing the songs of the album in the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. Also, she gave birth to her first child during making the album.
“We were stuck in the house for two years—not just from COVID, but our baby was born at the beginning of 2020,” Maren Morris told Zane Lowe of Apple Music about the album. “Both being songwriters, after a few months of learning to be new parents, it was like, 'Should we start being creative again? I don't know, what are we doing this for? There's no touring.' It was sort of this free fall of not being able to tour or write towards a direction, and I feel like that freed us up to write about whatever we wanted.”
- She continued, “It's two sides of a coin, and darkness is there to make us see light a little bit better. When I was listening to all of these songs, I just felt happy. I felt like [the album] was healing me in whatever I was drowning in. Ultimately, you can scream in an echo chamber as long as you want, but eventually the songs have to be heard by somebody besides you. I guess my hope is when people hear this, it will feel therapeutic and light.”
The concept of the album was inspired by a question she often asked herself.
She said, “Am I humble enough now… maybe. Or maybe I still haven't found it yet. Or maybe, who cares as long as your friends and, most importantly, you know what your heart is all about? But here's to taking the quest to find out.”
