Briston Maroney Releases Two New Songs “Oregon” & “Harvard”
- American singer-songwriter Briston Maroney released two new songs “Oregon” and “Harvard” on October 14, 2022 via Music/Atlantic Records.
Both songs were written by Briston Maroney with production by Caleb Wright and Jake Luppen.
He originally wrote the songs nearly five years ago.
Briston Maroney said of “Oregon”, “This is honestly an old song that I never thought would see the light of day, but I'm so stoked that it is in its fullest form! It was always in the back of my mind to record, and I'm so glad I waited to find someone like Jake Luppen to produce it. It's overly earnest – the way that anything that's written at 20 years old is – but having some perspective on the story and the general attitude of the song helped get it to a place that feels really special! 'Oregon,' more than anything, is about being young, and I love that it feels fresh and the opposite of jaded.”
He continued, “I like to think of 'Harvard' as a letter to the feminine side of my identity, something I totally didn't realize I was doing at the time that I wrote it. This is also an older track, one that I wrote on tour that literally came out without explanation in, like, 20 minutes before a show in Texas! We were sitting on Willie Nelson's old tour bus, which was being used as the green room for the show we were playing. Sometimes, these lightning bolt songs don't have an apparent meaning until far after they are written, and this song is no exception to that theory!”
