Maren Morris Reflects on Sturdy Relationships in ‘The Bones’ [LISTEN]
Maren Morris' new song "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' forthcoming 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."
Girl is due out on March 8. Thus far, fans have been able to hear album's first single, "Girl," as well as "Common," a collaboration with Brandi Carlile. The project also features a collaboration with Brothers Osborne. Morris co-wrote all 14 songs.
