Of “Fading,” MORGXN shares that the song is about “courting grief and knowing that sometimes something has to fall apart before you can move on to the next chapter. The song also asks the question ‘how do we know if the pain of a moment is worth it?’ and I’m not sure I know how to answer that, but I do know the song exists in the hope of that moment.”
Coming into the making of BEACON with over 100 songs, MORGXN teamed up with producer Marshall Altman (Natasha Bedingfield, Matt Nathanson, Citizen Cope) who helped pare them down into a collection of his most powerful tracks.
“We recorded it with a band, which I’ve never done before,” MORGXN says. “It’s real musicians playing the songs. Real strings! It’s not synthetically created in a laboratory.” He continues, “And there’s a choir! With my first album, I was told I could not record a choir… But for this record, I wasn’t playing—I put a choir on almost every song.”
Nashville born and bred artist Morgan Isaac Karr, best known as MORGXN, released his debut album vital in 2018 including the hit lead single “home” featuring Walk The Moon.
