Morris plans to release new song on Friday
Thursday, October 1, 2020
– Maren Morris announced today that she would release a new politically-oriented song, "Better Than We Found It," on Friday.
Morris has been very active commenting on political issues on her social media posts. The graphic posted by Morris announcing the release shows a black-and-white photo of people apparently protesting racial injustice in the U.S. One person can be seen holding a sign "Say Her Name," a reference to police violence against Blck women.
The song is not being released in conjunction with an album. Morris has been working on new material, but no new album has been announced.
The Texas native released "Girl" in March 2019 with the title, "Bones" and "To Hell and Back" released as singles.
Morris and husband Ryan Hurd, who has his own country career, became parents to a son, Hayes, in March.

After going the indie route in her native Texas, Maren Morris releases a five-song EP to serve as an intro for the hoped for masses. Morris, who has penned songs for Tim McGraw and Kelly Clarkson, starts off with the edgier sounding "My Church." With an easy-going pace, Morris is elastic with her words, puts a bit of twang and gospel feel into her delivery and sings with authority when she asks "Can I get a hallelujah?/Can I get an amen?" But her salvation is FM radio - ...
