Morris is "Dancing With Myself"

Thursday, February 15, 2024 – Maren Morris today released her take on Billy Idol's classic track "Dancing With Myself."

Gabe Simon (Noah Kahan, Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Post Malone) produced the song. A video shot at Grimey's record store in Nashville also is out.

"Dancing With Myself" marks Morris' first new music since her public break with country music last year and her EP, "The Bridge." The release featured "The Tree" and "Get the Hell Out of Here."

Morris said she felt that could not "participate in the really toxic arms" of country music in Nashville. She also said she had changed since 2020, embracing LGBTQ and racial issues, while also speaking out against Morgan Wallen in the wake of his use of the "N" word and transphobic comment by Brittany Aldean, the wife of Jason Aldean.

CD reviews for Maren Morris

CD review - Humble Quest Seeing Greg Kurstin listed as the producer on Maren Morris' "Humble Quest" album, can't help but raise a few eyebrows. His resume includes the likes of Pink and Sia, but not many country-related artists. Furthermore, it wasn't too long ago that Morris had big hit with "The Middle," a decidedly pop hit single recorded with the Russian-German producer, Zedd. This album's results are not as overtly pop as that recording, but not as country as her country hit "My Church. ...
CD review - GIRL Maren Morris, who had a huge pop hit with "The Middle," is never going to be anybody's ideal traditional country singer. Although, thankfully, there isn't anything that mind-numbingly beat-driven on her "GIRL" album, this is a full-length that will likely appeal as much to Morris' pop fans, as her country followers. The first great song, "A Song For Everything," addresses that mysterious intersection between one's favorite songs and significant life events. ...
CD review - Hero Maren Morris scored a hit out of the box with "My Church," the best of 11 songs on her major label full-length debut. The Texan infuses the song she wrote with uber producer busbee (he's worked with everyone from Keith Urban on "Ripcord" to 5 Seconds of Summer and Shakira and is one of three producers here including Morris) with mighty vocals powering a midtempo, soulful reading extolling the redemptive powers of playing music with the windows rolled down. ...
