After the wild success of "My Church," Maren Morris drops another sing-out-loud personal anthem.

Rising country singer/songwriter Maren Morris got the privilege of premiering her music video for “80s Mercedes” exclusively via Teen Vogue. The video was directed by Alon Isocianu and shot in Los Angeles using primarily green screen technology. Check it out below!

Going into the video treatment process, Maren had the vision for how she wanted the music video to reflect the energy of the song, “‘80s Mercedes’ was a music video in my mind from the day we wrote it” says Morris. “I wanted the visuals to feel really neon, hyper stylized and fun. Like a graphic novel on acid. Alon’s vision matched the song perfectly and I couldn’t picture a more fitting representation of the song!”

Furthermore, the music video includes one of Morris’ childhood friends whom Maren promised well before a decision was made to shoot the music video, that she would invite her friend to make a cameo, should a music video come to fruition for “80s Mercedes.” Morris kept her promise.

“80s Mercedes” Lyrics

Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Still runs good, built to last
Moves like a hula girl on the dash
She ain’t made for practicality
Yeah, I guess she’s just like me

It’s Saturday night, about time to go
Got my white leather jacket and a neon soul
Once I turn on the radio I’m ready to roll, roll, ready to roll

Feel like a hard-to-get starlet when I’m driving
Turning every head, hell I ain’t even trying
Got them Ray-Ban shades pretty in pink
Call me old school but hey

I’m a nineties baby
In my eighties Mercedes
I’m a nineties baby
In my eighties Mercedes

Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Pop the top down like a summer dream
She’s my teenage time machine
Just keeps getting sweeter with age
She’s classic through any decade

The sun’s in the sky, glitter on the seats
You can try, but the Benz is hard to beat
So, hey, if you want you can ride with me, ride, ride with me

Feel like a hard-to-get starlet when I’m driving
Turning every head, hell I ain’t even trying
Got them Ray-Ban shades pretty in pink
Call me old school but hey

I’m a nineties baby
In my eighties Mercedes
I’m a nineties baby
In my eighties Mercedes

Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh
It’s Saturday night, about time to go
Got my white leather jacket and a neon soul
Once I turn on the radio I’m ready to roll, roll, ready to roll

Feel like a hard-to-get starlet when I’m driving
Turning every head hell I ain’t even trying
Got them Ray-Ban shades pretty in pink
Call me old school but hey

I’m a nineties baby
In my eighties Mercedes
I’m a nineties baby
In my eighties Mercedes

Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh
