Indie Singer Henry Morris Releases Sizzling New Album ‘Jawbreaker’

Morris' lyrics tell of complicated young love gone wrong

Pop singer Henry Morris just released his new album Jawbreaker via King of the World/ONErpm. The album features help from collaborators Rob Cavallo, Jesse Ray Ernster, Jesse Fink, Victor Thell, Adriano, Andrew Wells, renforshort, and Taylor Ross. Alongside the album, Morris recorded a special live performance of the track “Hollywood Sextape.”

“’Hollywood Sextape’ is about a young girl who dreams of being rich and famous,” shares Morris. “She moves from a quaint yet boring life in the Midwest to Los Angeles where she meets a Hollywood executive who, as we’ve seen time and time again, takes advantage of her ambition and condemns her to the Hollywood Casting Couch. After a year of this mistreatment the girl, collects her last check, kills the evil man who took advantage of her, takes a large sum of his money, and returns to her quaint life. Money > fame everyday.”

In Jawbreaker you’ll see winners lose, losers win big, honest men steal, and rich men beg. And while talk is cheap Henry knows lies are expensive. He can say his music is intensely real because, while his wallet isn’t fat, neither is his head. Of Jawbreaker Henry Morris says “you’ll walk the line, you’ll sing the blues and you’ll be 6 feet deep, when the albums through.”

In sync with the anachronistic stylings of Chris Isaak and Lana Del Rey, Morris’ lyrics tell of complicated young love gone wrong. His delicate yet fierce guitar drips with the melodic eloquence of a young Jeff Beck. Listening to a Henry Morris song will undoubtedly send you back to the first time your heart was crushed and left bleeding and dying on the side of a desert highway.

Are you going to give this one a spin?
