Americana Alt-Rock Band and one of our favourite live acts, Morganway are set to release compelling new single "Edge of The Sun".

Morganway, are set to launch their latest single, "Edge of The Sun," on May 10th, 2024. This highly anticipated release promises to engage audiences with its powerful lyrics and dynamic musical arrangement. The announcement comes hot on the heels of Morganway's recent successes, including being unveiled as main stage artists at The Long Road Festival and securing slots at several prestigious festivals across the UK, including the renowned Belladrum Festival in Scotland. Their momentum was further fuelled by headlining the sold out Black Deer Live launch event in London last week, solidifying their status as one of the most exciting acts on the scene.


"Edge of The Sun" is a testament to Morganway's ability to craft compelling narratives within their music. Inspired by an account of a prison escape, the song explores themes of hope, resilience and the human spirit's ability to persevere against all odds. Band member Nicole J Terry shared her insight into the song's origins,"Edge of the sun lyrics were first inspired by an account of a prison escape. Listening to the story the tension was almost unbearable even knowing the ending. the moment he described seeing the‘ edge of the shining sun’ over the last wall and knew he was gonna make it just floored me. I like that it is possible to maintain hope in the face of certain death and absolute darkness over years and years, even if you’re the bad guy.’ Life isn’t that black and white, we don’t live in a movie, if you have any chance at all, take it with everything you’ve got.


"The collaborative nature of the band shines through in "Edge of The Sun," with lead singer SJMortimer adding:"It came about in covid times–Kieran had this stunning guitar riff that I kept singing melodies over. One night Nicky came over with these beautiful words, and they fit so well with the music, the song came out so quick. That’s what I love about collaborating–a song can come together in so many different ways, from many different perspectives. To me it’s a song of hope and belief, of having faith that there is always light at the end of the tunnel no matter how hard the struggle can be. "Edge of The Sun" features a compelling blend of emotive vocals, infectious melodies, and driving rhythms, creating an anthemic sound that resonates with listeners.


With lyrics like "In the dark, the edge of the shining sun/Wear the scar, the pieces inside your heart," the song invites audiences on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Morganway's "Edge of The Sun" will be available on all major streaming platforms from May 10th,2024. Don't miss the opportunity to experience the latest offering from this dynamic band.

Well, I've had the privilege of hearing the song before release and its a killer track, so its a huge thumbs up from us.
