Exclusive Single Premiere: Liam Morton “My Baby” (2020)

Liam Morton

Brisbane’s Liam Morton is back this week with a new single, “My Baby”. Officially released tomorrow, we’re stoked to bring you this exclusive first taste of the new track. 

You might not know it from a casual listen, but “My Baby” is a lament; a lament for a broken relationship and for those missteps and regrets that happen along the way. It just happens to also be a lament full of hooks and high on melodies. 

“This track is basically about me not getting things right and not being the best version of myself. I pushed it too far and the elastic band that was my relationship broke, then I felt sad and then I wrote this song.” – Liam Morton

Despite the downbeat subject matter, “My Baby”, largely sounds carefree, and not only quintessentially Australian, but quintessentially Brisbane. Which isn’t too surprising, given that Morton has played in a number of bands in the Brisbane scene across the years. There’s also a strong pop sensibility to the whole endeavour too; whilst those backing vocals really help set it apart.

“My Baby” was written during a self imposed songwriting retreat at Dysart, a ten hour drive from Brisbane. It was then recorded, along with three other songs, at Wagwurst Studios in Caboolture with Trevor Stefiuk on production duties. 

Morton will be launching the new single at The Bearded Lady on November 6th; with support on the evening coming from Daisy & The White Jackets. Tickets can be found HERE, and the ticket price includes two drink tickets on arrival.
