After a long wait from 2021’s Sunflower that catapulted him to international acclaim, Nashville’s Briston Maroney has unveiled “Body“, marking the first single from his forthcoming album ULTRAPURE, due out on September 22 via Canvasback/Atlantic Records. The album is an incredibly personal venture for Maroney — produced by Daniel Tashian, ULTRAPURE finds Maroney playing every instrument on the record for his most cohesive effort yet. Maroney shares the following about ULTRAPURE:
My favorite moments in the human experience are ones that you don’t even realize have started, but feel so deeply when you realize they’ve ended. I refer to these as ‘Ultrapure’ moments. This album was my humble, unqualified, and earnest as hell attempt at sitting in those feelings until they had no choice but to burst out of my head. These songs are about a type of pain I hate and love, but mostly have a deep appreciation for.
With “Body“, you can hear that cohesion and tenderness. The song is a driving, gauzy rumination on Maroney’s upbringing and success, with a chorus that’s sure to endear the songwriter to a new audience of listeners. You can watch the music video directed by Drew Bauml below, and keep scrolling to see Maroney’s recently announced lineup for Paradise Festival, which is set to return in October to Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl featuring Samia, Hovvdy, and others.
