NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (October 12, 2018) – The wait is over for fans across the globe as the full-length debut album from Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records artist MORGAN EVANS, THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO, is available everywhere today.
Chronicling his two-year journey since moving to America from Australia, each of the 11 tracks was co-penned by Evans and producer Chris DeStefano with some of Nashville’s most elite songwriters. Evans showcases his musicianship across the album, with he and DeStefano playing every instrument heard throughout.
A “breezy mix of up-tempo jams, lovestruck anthems and loop-driven creative mojo” (Rolling Stone), the diverse track list includes his #1 debut US single “Kiss Somebody” and current chart-climber “Day Drunk,” as well as the heartfelt love song “Dance with Me” featuring GRAMMY-nominated artist and wife Kelsea Ballerini.
Set to captivate fans live from New York City on Thursday (10/18), the rising star will make his debut on NBC’s TODAY in the 10:00 a.m. hour. Evans will also appear on an upcoming episode of E! News to chat about THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO while serving up his signature “Morg’s Margs.” View a clip of the interview online here.
Evans kicked off the party last night in Nashville, TN, performing a pop-up show for select fans to celebrate the release. Tonight, he will return to the famed circle of the Grand Ole Opry stage for two shows, and play an exclusive private set for attendees who purchase THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO on-site. Saturday night (10/13) Evans will toast to his debut album with fans in Chicago, IL with a release party blowout at Joe’s on Weed St.
