Briston Maroney

Singer-songwriter Briston Maroney announces the debut single 'Body' and music video from his forthcoming sophomore album, Ultrapure. The new music video for 'Body' is directed by Maroney with close friend and collaborator Drew Bauml. The video stars Maroney in his physical form, alongside an animated depiction of his soul. Evoking nostalgia, the visual “carries the emotion of a twenty-something discovering their own freedom for the first time.” 

Rain previously interviewed Briston on the debut of Maroney's debut LP Sunflower in 2021. The album was released to critical acclaim and the viral hit "Freakin' Out On The Interstate" has gone Platinum. The forthcoming album, Ultrapure, will mark Briston's confident, cohesive,, and deeply personal body of work.

My favorite moments in the human experience are ones that you don’t even realize have started, but feel so deeply when you realize they’ve ended. I refer to these as ‘Ultrapure’ moments. This album was my humble, unqualified, and earnest as hell attempt at sitting in those feelings until they had no choice but to burst out of my head. These songs are about a type of pain I hate and love, but mostly have a deep appreciation for.

Maroney will also launch his UK/EU tour, beginning in Brighton, UK, on October 31 and ending in Cologne, Germany, on November 16 with stops in London, Paris, Amsterdam, and more. Tour dates listed below.
