Maren Morris recently went back into her musical vault and found two tracks to “polish” up and release to fans. Out Friday (June 12), “Just for Now” and “Takes Two” have been added to the superstar’s GIRL album across all streaming platforms.
“GIRL has been out over a year & has been one of the most transformative periods of my life.,” Morris recently shared on social media. “During this time off the road, I had the opportunity to polish up 2 older songs of mine that I couldn’t wait for you to hear.”
“Just for Now” was originally recorded during the HERO sessions. The Texas native co-wrote the song with her husband Ryan Hurd and the late Busbee, who Morris often collaborated with before his tragic passing in 2019.
“Takes Two” was a track Morris recorded while in the studio creating her sophomore album, GIRL. She co-wrote the song with Sarah Aarons and Greg Kurstin, the same songwriters she wrote the smash hit “GIRL” with.
The release of the new tracks comes as the Grammy-winning singer’s Platinum-certified hit “The Bones” is spending its fourteenth week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. After its 11th week on the chart, the song became the longest leading No.1 by a solo female artist. Earlier this year, when “The Bones” first hit No.1 on the chart, it marked the first time since 2016 that a solo country female artist had two #1’s from the same album.
Maren Morris’ latest single, “To Hell & Back,” was the second most-added song at country radio upon impact, with 41 stations added the song during its first week.
