Kirsten Morrell, she of Goldenhorse fame, has resumed her solo career with a brand new song titled Strawberry Fool. Yum!
Here’s the blurb:
Kirsten Morrell is known for her sparkling career with Goldenhorse who released three multi-platinum selling albums and had such a long-lasting impact that they’ve been covered over the last year by everyone from Lorde to alt-folk artist Erny Belle to indie band Hans Pucket.
Kirsten Morrell then released a solo album, before relocating to London and joining one of the city’s leading symphonic choirs, Crouch End Festival Chorus, who perform high-profile shows such as the BBC Proms. During the Covid-19 lockdowns, she began writing new solo material. She then worked with award-winning engineer/producer Clint Murphy (Manic Street Preachers, Kimbra) to bring these to fruition, along with contributing musicians guitarist Ben King (Goldenhorse), bassist Alan Gregg (Muttonbirds), renowned classical guitarist Barkin Sertkaya, keyboardist Stephen Small and violinist Adrien De Croy.
Strawberry Fool is a poptastic song, a taster of more to come. Kirsten says of the song:
“Strawberry Fool is like one of those songs that you write and wonder by releasing it into the world if you’ve imagined the lyrics asleep trying to undo the day-to-day: I’ve fallen in love, had my heart broken, watched the sea for hours on end wondering, wondering how to fix crises such as pollution! It’s that kind of song. If it helps someone overcome or heal, puts some joy out there into the world… then that’s cool.’
