Saxe’s forthcoming debut album coming this spring
GRAMMY Award-nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, JP Saxe and GRAMMY Award-winner, Maren Morris, debut a new song, “Line By Line” via Arista Records. The intricate and emotive lyrics were penned by Saxe, Morris and Jimmy Robbins (Maren Morris’s “The Bones”) in Nashville. The track is accompanied by an official music video starring both artists and is available now.
“My first thought about this song is that it’s surreal I get to be sharing it with one of my favorite artists ever,” Saxe says. “Regarding what it’s about…as songwriters, we spend a lot of our lives trying to bottle up a feeling into a song, and often, the biggest feelings, the best ones… the complicated, detailed, messy, incredible ones… just aren’t going to fit. Line by Line is our recognition of that… of how one song just isn’t enough to capture it all, but how we’re just going to keep writing, futilely and lovingly, anyway.”
“I have always loved being contemplative of the artist vs. muse relationship in songs,” Morris adds of the track. “‘Line by Line’ acts as a promise that I’ll never be done writing about my muse in this life because he can’t be summed up in one song. Writing that day with JP was the most fluid, inspiring session. He’s a lyrical faucet. He threw out the line ‘immortalizing my sincerity’ and it blew my mind. I think all in all, we wrote the whole song in an hour and immediately recorded it.”
Toronto native Saxe always finds a way to cut beyond the surface, lyrically tapping into a deep connectivity with universal emotion and human experience. In October 2019, Saxe released his multi-platinum selling collaboration “If The World Was Ending” featuring GRAMMY Award-nominated artist, Julia Michaels, which has been nominated for Song of the Year at the upcoming 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards. The track has accumulated over one billion streams and over 120 million video views.
Saxe is set to release new music this winter, leading into his anticipated debut album out this spring.
