Meghan Trainor walked down the aisle to a song that she wrote, and now, you can too.
The singer released her new EP The Love Train on Friday, and the six-track launch includes "Marry Me," which Trainor penned for her own wedding day. “I never thought I would release it,” Trainor told People of the song. “There’s a place online where my fans — they’re so smart — they can go see what songs are registered. So they’ll see a list of titles and be like, ‘What is ‘Marry Me’? Release it now!’ So they’ve known about that for a while, and they’ve been begging for it. I was like, ‘Ooh, they’re never gonna hear that.'”
Meghan Trainor wed Daryl Sabra in a backyard wedding in Los Angeles on December 22, 2018—exactly one year after they got engaged (and, coincidentally, her 25th birthday). And in addition to "Marry Me," their relationship inspired the other five songs on the album, too. “It’s very much all my real stories with him,” she said, noting that she is "super in love."
The 6-song set was initially written to be a part of her upcoming album, Treat Myself, which is expected to come out later this year. However, she decided to release them early, calling it an "early Valentine's Day present" to her fans. "These songs are so personal and so important to me that I just wanted to get them out as soon as possible," she said, noting that she wanted to,“give people happy love songs — even if they’re not in a relationship, just to inspire them to spread love and be happy.”
Happy love songs, indeed. Listen to "Marry Me" here:
