Leave it to Morgan Wadeto go and drop a single like this after just putting out a full-length album.
She dropped a surprise song today just in time for spooky season called “Halloween,” which is a hauntingly beautiful ballad about how the ghost of her ex (and the memories they shared) still follows her around.
After putting out her sophomore studio album Psychopath in August, I never thought we’d be getting more new music from her this soon, but it’s a stunning song with a beautiful piano arrangement that once again shows off her incredible vocals.
Written by Morgan and Clint Wells, the lyrics gave me chills, with Morgan pretty much pouring her heart out about the disappointment in losing a once-in-a-lifetime love:
“I knew I loved you that Halloween When I saw you and I got mad You came in with someone that wasn’t me And I’ve never felt pain that bad So I cried in my car at the liquor store And I almost relapsed
We were friends but I wanted more I was hoping you wanted me back And you met me for coffee at my favorite place Right by the railroad tracks You touched my hand and you felt insane Our hearts didn’t cut us no slack You never get over a love like that”
I think this is already one of my favorite songs she’s ever released, and also, probably the best “Halloween” song I’ve ever heard (even though it’s not really about Halloween at all, but you get the point).
