Morris said things are "going pretty okay" with the new baby, considering her touring schedule and other events were "completely wiped out."
"We have a lot more free time to devote our attention to Hayes," she said.
Morris said hunkering down with her family at home has been the "silver lining" of the year.
"We never get that first year back with our newborn. To really be here at home, for like the first time in like a decade? I'm sure all of us have seen more of our spouses than we ever have, so it's been a trial," she said.
In addition to motherhood, Morris said she's started writing new music.
"I am starting to write again. I'm back in a headspace where I can be a little more creative and not so mom-brained. I've written a handful of songs via Zoom and safe distantly," she said. "It's kind of nice to use my brain in that way again."
"It's going to be really emotional, just to get to play music live in any capacity," Morris said.
The interview ended with a recording of Morris performing her song "The Bones." The song appears on her second studio album, Girl, released in March 2019.
