Diplo And Maren Morris Share New Song '42'

Grammy-winning artists Diplo and Maren Morris share a new track, “42” today—listen here. Co-written by Ryan Tedder (Beyoncé, Adele, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber), the new song marks the first collaboration between the two global superstars, who have long been searching for an opportunity to work together.

“42” follows Diplo's recent house tracks “Diamond Therapy,” “Favela Joint” and “Stay High,” released via his own label Higher Ground. Earlier this year he shared his second country album, Diplo Present Thomas Wesley: Chapter 2—Swamp Savant featuring collaborations with Sturgill Simpson, Morgan Wade, Orville Peck, Elle King and more.

Maren recently unveiled a two-track EP, The Bridge, featuring “The Tree,” which she recently performed alongside Mickey Guyton and Brittney Spencer on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”—and “Get the Hell Out of Here.”

Maren was just honored with the Changemaker Award at Variety's seventh annual Hitmakers celebration for her work as a songwriter and advocate for change in music.
