Announces new single, “Tell Me That You Miss Me”
Headline show at London’s St Pancras Old Church in March
Rochdale’s Morgan Harper-Jones unveils new single, “Tell Me That You Miss Me”, out on Play It Again Sam. Its intimate piano melody showcases her beautiful voice, as she asks, “Do you still skip the sad songs, to stop yourself from feeling anything?”
She shares, “I guess it’s quite a stubborn love song. I really don’t want to admit that I miss this person, especially the parts of them that pissed me off.”
Produced by Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode, Keaton Henson), and recorded with members of Ezra Collective, the track exhibits the next stage in her songwriting, following on from last year’s Breathe EP.
Morgan adds, “Tell Me That You Miss Me’ has definitely been my favourite song to play live. I like any song with a little sly dig in it (you’ll know which part I mean when you hear it), it always makes me chuckle a little… “
The track will instantly hook you. The bold piano tone emerges as simply striking, resonating in the still ambiance as Harper-Jones then leads the intimate vocal melodies which cascade across the harrowing atmosphere. A raw and cutting lyrical journey, the emotion builds up throughout the ensemble and is emphasized with the gentle harmonies that weave throughout those heroic and stern keys that sculpt the atoning ambiance. A truly standout single from an artist worthy of your full attention.
Wednesday 16th March 2022 – St Pancras Old Church, London
Hailing from Rochdale, Harper-Jones is a force of nature, her soul-baring songwriting echoing the intimate honesty of Cat Power, Joni Mitchell and Bon Iver.
Her songs are filled with starkly honest lyrics that tap into obsession, infatuation, and the unhealthy behaviours that come with the territory. “I don’t will myself to cry when I write, but with particular lines I get emotional, and I keep them – and those are always the lines that get other people,” she shares. “It’s magic, and so connecting. It’s like someone’s sat next to you saying it’s ok to feel that way as a human.”
