Maren Morris has announced Humble Quest: In Rare Form, a short film with seven reimagined tracks from her latest album, Humble Quest

“This came as an idea to me near the end of my tour when my band and I had worked so hard every show to find new moments to make each performance magical and unique,” Morris shared on Instagram. “We were able to reimagine the songs of Humble Quest in this very stripped, beautiful form at sunset on a hill in North Carolina. No lighting, no bells and whistles, just Mother Nature, music and friendship. Oh, and some pretty good gin & tonics.”

Upon its release in March, Humble Quest debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. The album also broke an Amazon Music record for the most first day and first week streams globally for an album released by a female country artist.

Morris began writing the songs on Humble Quest in the beginning of the pandemic as a series of major life changes unfolded—new motherhood, an upended career, the death of beloved friend and collaborator Michael Busbee and more, further compounded by lockdown.

The album contains 11 tracks including Circles Around This Town, Background Music, Nervous, The Furthest Thing and I Can’t Love You Anymore, her collaboration with husband and fellow country singer, Ryan Hurd. It was produced by Greg Kurstin and features co-writes with Julia Michaels, Jimmy Robbins, Natalie Hemby, Laura Veltz and Jon Green.

Morris first announced the album news on social media in mid-January, along with a letter to fans in which she described the record as “country-er” than her last and “really hopeful.”

Morris wrote in part, “It turns out the pandemic did humble me. Shooting off my mouth one time too many humbled me, the death of a beloved friend and producer humbled me, motherhood and marriage humbled me. 'Humble' began to feel more like a grounded state of understanding oneself; not so much by being relatable to or understood by all.”

She concluded, “Am I humble enough now? Maybe. Or maybe I still haven’t found it yet. Or maybe, who gives a sh*t as long as your friends and, most importantly, you know what your heart is all about? But here’s to taking the quest to find out.”

Earlier this year, Morris revealed her intention to audition for the main role of Elphaba in the musical Wicked. She also shared her long-lost cover of Edelweiss from The Sound of Music.
