Maren Morris announced last week that “big things were coming”, and now we know precisely what she was talking about. Maren’s gone EDM with a collaboration between Zedd and Grey, entitled “The Middle”. The song is a high energy anthem and Morris’ cross-genre appeal blends perfectly with the vibe.
It’s an exciting step forward for Morris’ career, one that reminds us of Taylor Swift’s transition from country to pop. It wouldn’t surprise if Morris shifted toward pop in the longer term – she never fit squarely into country, and country as a whole has made shifts closer to pop with acts like Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett who’ve already been pushing the envelope and bringing “country” closer to mass appeal.
