Maren Morris on the Direction of Album No. 2: 'It's a Big One'

Maren Morris is expanding her horizons on her next project, but she promises she’ll always be country.

The country superstar reveals in an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 on Apple Music that her sophomore album will include “a little bit of everything.”

“It’s still really soulful and rooted in country but there’s still like these R&B vibes to it and it’s kind of like the first one,” Maren says.

Before she enters the studio to record, the “I Could Use a Love Song” singer adds she’ll meet another 10 times with songwriters, some of whom also appeared on her debut project and others with whom she’s never worked.

“That kind of shapes the sound for me is just connecting the dots of all the songs,” she says. “So it's a little bit of everything but still really rooted in a country where I'll always be.”

She’ll begin pre-production on the album before she hits the road on Niall Horan’s Flicker World Tour on June 1.

“So album two,” she says, “it's a big one.”
