She’s best known for Spanish-language songs like “Déjenme Llorar” and “Compartir”… But the truth is Carla Morrison has a new single en ingles that’s just as memorable.
The 26-year-old Mexico-born alt-rock singer-songwriter, a two-time Latin Grammy winner, took part in the 14th edition of the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) this week in New York.
“It’s not always about the song,” Morrison declared during the “DIY 2.0” panel, referring to the use of social media.
Morrison, known for pop songs with some bite, recently recorded her first English-language song as a soloist and released it without telling many people.
During her most recent tour Morrison has been performing “The Truth” and her die-hard fans seem to be appreciating the love ballad, which features the ukulele.
“If I had told my managers about the song they would probably have come up with some kind of strategy in releasing it,” Morrison said, who instead wanted to keep her new musical inspiration low-key.
While it’s still unclear if Morrison will record an all-English album, she’s definitely interested in exploring the idea.
Morrison performed a short set at the LAMC Acoustic Showcase at S.O.B.’s on Thursday night, with Astro, Alex Anwandter, Torreblanca, Catupecu Manchu, Sol Fernandez, Mitre, Ulises Hadjis and Viniloversus also performing.
A much fuller show featuring Morrison and her band was scheduled to take place on Saturday, from 3 to 7 p.m., at the LAMC/Central Park SummerStage Show at Rumsey Playfield entrance (72nd Street and 5th Avenue).
Saturday’s lineup also includes Julieta Venegas and Anwandter, while Morrison plans to perform “The Truth.”
