About “translucent” morgxn says:
"it's all a lie/dressed up in overdrive/choose your own paradise/it's up to you"
i can't believe i'm writing to tell you that the first single “translucent” off my debut album, vital, comes out today.
“translucent” as a word has as many meanings as this song. the opaque way i still heal from my childhood. the relationships i thought were supposed to save me but only caused more pain. that the truth will come to light if you stick to yours.
vital. this is the whole story but it is still incomplete
you are what is vital to me. and i’ll never not think that in the bones of all of these songs.
thank you for listening.”
On his official signing to Hollywood Records, morgxn said, “i live by the motto if you want something you’ve never had you have to do something you’ve never done. i walked into Hollywood Records to play them my music but they had a broken speaker system so i sat at the piano and played them a song i had written. the rest, as they say, is history. it excites me that we are both exploring new territory working together and i look forward to bringing my music to you in an even bigger way this year.”
morgxn has received praise from a wide variety of publications such as V magazine, Billboard, NYLON, Alternative Press, FLAUNT, Popjustice with support from radio stations like KCRW and SiriusXM. morgxn’s songs have over 10.5MM collective streams on Spotify with his song, “Home” coming in with 6.9MM alone. “Home” has also been featured along with other select tracks on ABC, HBO, SHOWTIME, NBC, The CW and USA Networks.
