RISING SINGER/SONGWRITER MORGAN SAINT RELEASES NEW TRACK “ON FIRE”
SOPHOMORE EP ALIEN AVAILABLE OCTOBER 5
ANNOUNCES NEW FALL U.S. TOUR OPENING FOR LOVELYTHEBAND
“Morgan Saint is making her case for being the next great underground pop star.”
“Her vocals are raspy, light, and low; the beat is catchy and uplifting, replete with moments of literal snapping; and her lyrics go deep to deal with love, self-identity, and the past.”
“You need to listen to Morgan Saint”
Today, dynamic singer/songwriter Morgan Saint releases a seductive new track, “On Fire” from her upcoming sophomore EP, ALIEN, due out October 5. Get it HERE!
The brand-new song finds the inventive artist once again delivering a haunting vocal that enraptures and ensnares, hypnotically topped off by the song’s alluring melodic refrain. It’s a captivating follow-up to last year’s shimmering cache of tracks from her acclaimed debut EP, 17 Hero, featuring the ethereal song “You,” which garnered millions of streams and wowed both critics and fans.
Known for her magnetic live show and striking visual presence, (she has toured extensively and drawn raves for her Lollapalooza performance and other Festival appearances this summer) Morgan has also announced a slate of 2018 fall dates, opening up for indie LA trio Lovelytheband on their Broken Like Me Tour, joining their U.S. trek on October 6, in Dallas, TX (see complete list of live dates below). She recently turned heads with her much-buzzed-about appearance at New York Fashion Week, which included a runway performance that adroitly captured her daring musical and visual alchemy that has drawn raves from tastemakers including the New Yorker, Vogue, Pigeons & Planes, Time, NME, WWD, i-D, Bazaar, Galore, and PAPER – which recently named her as one of the ‘100 Women Revolutionizing Pop.’ Audiences pay rapt attention to the bold new star, and it’s with the same fearless artistic command that she draws the listener in on the compelling “On Fire.” There’s a beguiling honesty inherent in her voice that is both sultry and defiant, cascading over minimal percussion and fractured spoken-word laments that stay with you long after the song has ended. As adept at creating accessible pop soundscapes as she is at mining her more melancholic reflections, she’s woven a cathartic blend on her upcoming EP, adding colorful new layers to her thought-provoking repertoire that continues to challenge musical norms. Morgan will be showcasing some of her new music live at the celebrated Life is Beautiful Festival in downtown Las Vegas on September 22.
Born and raised on Long Island, Morgan Saint learned piano and taught herself guitar during her formative years. Graduating from Parsons New School for Design, she gravitated towards music and artists who weren’t afraid to be themselves. With all her songs self-penned, she’s also crafted stunning videos that expand her creative canvas and vividly complement her music iterations. Having released her acclaimed Epic Records debut 17 Hero last fall, her eagerly anticipated follow-up ALIEN will be available everywhere, October 5.
