Marcus Mumford and Maren Morris release new version of Daisy Jones & The Six’s “Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)”
Earlier this month Daisy Jones & The Six, the fictional band from the recent Amazon Prime Video series based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 novel of the same name, released their debut album Aurora, which helmed by Blake Mills and featured co-writing credits from Phoebe Bridgers, Marcus Mumford and Jackson Browne. Today (17 March) Mumford has recruited Maren Morris for a reimagined Amazon Original version of “Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)”.
Morris says, “Shows depicting the reality of what it takes to become a band or what it’s really like touring can so often get it wrong. One of the components of ‘Daisy Jones’ is that they chose to ground this fictional universe with real songwriting. The music in the show that Blake Mills created and the incredible performances by the actors gives this world a heartbreaking authenticity. I’m so honoured to have gotten to sing on “Look At Us Now” with Marcus.”
Mumford adds, “Blake and I wrote “Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)” together – with a bit of help – about a year and a half ago for Daisy Jones & The Six. This time around, we stripped the song right back down to acoustic guitar and a vocal – which is how it was written – and then kind of built it back up from there until we landed on an arrangement that we liked. I’ve been a fan of Maren for a long time – both her solo music and her work with The Highwomen – and this duet needed a voice like hers. We’re just honestly so thankful she agreed to do it.”
