Maren Morris Shares Three New Songs From ‘Hero’ Deluxe Edition [Listen]
Fast-rising country superstar Maren Morris released the deluxe edition of her critically acclaimed debut studio album Hero on Friday (March 17), and she is sharing the three new tracks with fans — even those who didn't pick up a copy.
“Space," “Bummin’ Cigarettes" and “Company You Keep" are all included on the album's extended version. "Space" offers a moody melody with lyrics to match, crooning "Well you really did it this time / Everyone watched as you took the stars right out of my sky / The light out of my eyes" over a mellow tune. "Bummin' Cigarettes" shows off the young singer's smooth voice, bringing some emotion into the mix saying she needs to "quit bumming cigarettes from the wrong guy." "Company You Keep" boasts an upbeat melody and draws comparisons to her current hit "80s Mercedes," making for the most light-hearted of the three new tracks.

Hero has earned the star several accolades since its 2016 release. It claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and debuted at No. 5 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. The album's first single, "My Church," scored the singer her first Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance at the 2017 awards ceremony. She also took home the Best New Artist trophy at the 50th annual CMA Awards.
Continuing on her winning streak, Morris is already a winner at the 2017 ACM Awards with her designation as New Female Vocalist of the Year. She is also nominated in five other of the night's categories, including Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year and "My Church" scoring another nod for Single Record of the Year.
Morris is currently on her first headlining Hero Tour, with an international leg kicking off in November of 2017.
