Maren Morris Recruits Hozier For Rework Of ‘The Bones’

Maren Morris and Hozier have unveiled a new version of Morris’ Top 15 hit single, “The Bones.” The rework debuts the pair’s flawless harmonies on the Gold-certified tune, which Morris co-wrote with Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz and has already amassed more than 126 million on-demand streams.

“When I first heard ‘Like Real People Do’ I think I could actually hear my heart breaking and then immediately felt songwriter envy that I didn’t write it first,” said Morris of a Hozier song. “Hozier’s soul and vulnerability is so arresting and fit so well with the foundational theme of my song ‘The Bones.’ I feel so grateful to have him on it.”

“Something of love’s enduring nature really comes through on ‘The Bones,’ it’s a gorgeous song,” said Hozier. “I was delighted to be asked to sing with the Maren Morris on this track—she is such a wonderful artist.”

Morris is currently headlining her GIRL: The World Tour in support of her record-setting, critically-acclaimed LP GIRL, which includes the original version of “The Bones.” She’s currently nominated for six CMA Awards, the most of any artist this year, including Female Vocalist of the Year, as well as Album of the Year (GIRL), Single, Song, and Music Video of the Year (“Girl”), and Musical Event of the Year (“All My Favorite People” featuring Brothers Osborne).
