It’s easy to take what we have for granted in the moment, and Woolwich, ON-based folk artist Carla Muller perfectly captures that sentiment with her new single “Another Morning After” – check it out on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLBc2PuQgks&feature=youtu.be
Featuring whimsical violin, acoustic guitar, banjo, and upright bass, “Another Morning After” is both celebratory and introspective, taking the listener through snapshots in the life of a couple, beginning with their courtship and ending with them looking forward to the rest of their lives together. In fact; it’s actually the story of Carla and Tom; her own husband of 32 year.
The chorus begs “I want another morning after” as Muller looks at the day after each big day. For example, here’s the morning after the couple’s wedding:
I want another morning after
Wedding veil still hanging on the wall
And we haven’t left our bed
We just ordered in instead
And outside the summer rain began to fall
“‘Another Morning After’ is about everything we have to look forward to,” muses Muller. “Just one more morning after a special day. The morning after the first time you knew you were in love. The first morning of your honeymoon. The morning after your little one came into this world, as you settle into your new life together. And it’s easy to think you’re running out of firsts, but there are still so many morning afters to come.”
