Briston Maroney Falls Deeper in Love in "I Told You So"


Acclaimed and newly LA-based artist Briston Maroney begins his new era by falling deeper in love on his latest single, "I Told You So," produced by Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver, Weyes Blood). The single features a collection of mellow instrumentation and endearing lyrics guaranteed to melt the heart, highlighting Maroney's impressive ability to create profoundly vulnerable and relatable music that sticks with the listener long after the four-minute run time has ended.

Gentle acoustic guitar strums, lilting piano keys, and steel guitar accents usher in Maroney's soft vocals. Over the warm, folky instrumentation, he paints a picture of going on a drive through the mountains with his love, sharing memories of their youth and holding hands until they've gone numb. The chorus blooms as the artist sweetly croons poignant lyrics like, "Feels like you knew me, before I knew myself / Head underwater, with things I couldn't help... Sun will set on perfect days, but / Some things you just know / I told you so."

"It's such a beautiful thing to learn about the life someone you love had before you," shares Maroney. "This is a song about the beauty of that experience and what it's like to fall even more in love once you know someone's story!!"

Alongside the track's release is an accompanying music video, shot and edited by Natalie Hewitt, which follows Maroney and his partner embarking on a road trip together. Starting at home playing with the dog, the duo hit the road, capture beautiful landscapes with their camcorder along the way, stop for tacos, and take in the stunning vistas on their journey. Once they finally reach their destination, they swim in the ocean and watch as the sun sets on the shimmering water.

The standout track arrives timed to the start of Maroney's 2024 North American headline tour, which kicks off tonight, January 25, in Raleigh, NC, supporting his stunning sophomore album, Ultrapure. The highly-anticipated run includes two sold-out nights at Webster Hall in NYC, two nights at The Fonda in LA, and already boasts sold-out shows in Boston, DC, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, and many more cities in between.
