Nashville pop-country singer Maren Morris has unveiled a new single, ‘Circles Around This Town’, alongside an accompanying music video. The track was written by Morris with frequent collaborators Ryan Hurd, Julia Michaels and Jimmy Robbins and produced by Greg Kurstin. Check out the Harper Smith-directed visual below.
“I could see the visuals for ‘Circles Around This Town’ the moment I wrote the song,” Morris said in a press release, continuing:
I’ve always been so inspired by the industrial, blown out colors of music videos from the 90s, so Harper Smith and I wanted the aesthetics of this video to reflect that grainy, devil-may-care attitude of all my females heroes from that era: Sheryl, Fiona, Alanis. Obviously, having a penchant for the nostalgic, we decided to recreate my teenage bedroom and pin old photos of me as a kid on the walls and have me typing on an old PC computer. I knew I didn’t want to take anything too seriously in this video, so all our amplified ‘signs of the universe’ are purposefully campy, but they also ask the viewer, ‘Is the universe actually showing you signs or do you just know when you need to make a real change?’ ‘Circles Around This Town’ is my story, so I felt like I truly got to relive my journey from Texas to Nashville again.
Maren Morris’ last album was 2019’s GIRL.
