NEWS: Morgan Harper-Jones shares new single ‘Forever for Now’

Rising Rochdale artist Morgan Harper-Jones has just released her sublime new single, ‘Forever For Now’, available today via Play It Again Sam.  The lilting new single belies its emotional heft, driven by Morgan’s ease for tracing quiet devastation with hushed and sincere songwriting. Morgan said, “At the time I wrote it, I thought ‘Forever For Now’ was a love song to reassure someone that you think they’re amazing, but you’re pretty chilled about where things are going. But a year after writing it, it feels like quite a fearful song. It’s adoring someone and feeling safer than you’ve ever felt with anyone before, but you’re still not ready to commit to a relationship or allow yourself to let go and rely on someone else, or be loved. The new track is the follow-up to her 2022 EP While You Lay Sound Asleep, produced by Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode) featuring co-writes with Eg White (Adele) and Keaton Henson.

Morgan was raised between both sets of her Grandparents (her mother’s mother the owner of a record stall and her father’s father a keen musician who wrote songs for each member of the family). Their tastes shaped Morgan’s own anachronistic love for the likes of Joni Mitchell’Blue, Patsy Cline and Motown classics (with the telly permanently tuned either to Norman Wisdom films or 70s sitcom classic George & Mildred). Early experiments with songwriting and performing soon followed – with Morgan’s reference points later suffused with more contemporary touchstones including Andy Shauf, Aldous Harding and Adrianne Lenker – eventually leading to full-time music studies at Manchester’s BIMM Academy. 

Morgan said that she is, ” Perusing music as a side to my knitting career.”
