Grammy winner Maren Morris has released a duo of songs, “The Tree” and “Get The Hell Out of Here,” under the collective project title The Bridge, today (Friday, Sept. 15).
Though she is still hard at work on her next full-length project, Morris said she felt the two songs “deserved a moment of their own.”
Morris said in an Instagram post that the dual song release “honors where I’ve been and [sic] but also feels like a forward step into the sun.”
Morris added, “As I’ve been working on my record nonstop this year, I realized these two songs deserved a moment of their own – a story in their own right, written a day apart from each other – a tender duo and bridge to my next album. I welcome, celebrate and grieve the changes that have happened these last few years and these two songs say it better than I ever could in a caption or interview….hope you enjoy these. ‘Wherever I’m going, I hope I’m not the only one.’”
Morris also noted in a separate Instagram photo that an accompanying two-part music video for The Bridge will premieres Friday (Sept 15) at 10 a.m. ET.
Morris’ upcoming full-length album will follow her 2022 project Humble Quest and her 2019 album GIRL, which won a CMA Award for album of the year. GIRL‘s key song, “The Bones,” won Morris single and song of the year honors in 2020, while Morris also picked up her first CMA female vocalist of the year win.
