At long last new music from Maren Morris will soon see the light of day. The singer/songwriter has announced the lead single from her upcoming sophomore studio album. Titled “Girl,” the track will officially debut on Thursday, Jan. 17, when it hits country radio at 4 p.m. CT.

The song was co-written by Morris with Sara Aarons (“The Middle,” Zedd/Maren Morris/Grey) and Greg Kirstin (Adele, Sia), who also served as producer.

The song gives a glimpse at the up-and-down path Morris took to achieve her dream, as she sings the words “Girl, don’t hang your head low. Don’t lose your halo. Everyone’s gonna be okay, baby, girl.”

The release of “Girl” comes nearly three years to the day after Morris released her debut single, “My Church.” The track, which is featured on her debut album HERO, has since been certified 2x Platinum.

Fans can expect more music from the GRAMMY-winning artist when her sophomore album drops later this year.
