George Morris, the indie rock artist and former frontman of The Satin Peaches, has released the second single from his upcoming self-titled solo LP. The track “Full of Stars” follows-up the album’s lead single “100 Years“.
“‘Full of Stars’ basically all came from the Space Odyssey books by Arthur C. Clarke….plus a few random rhymes,” says Morris. “The chorus is one of my favorite melodies I’ve written, probably because I don’t remember writing it.“
The full-length will be released on February 10th and is Morris’ third album since his departure from the Island Records band The Satin Peaches. After the group called it quits in 2010, Morris began writing new material, expanding his guitar and piano skills, and working on tunes that called back to Radiohead, Velvet Underground, and The Beatles. In 2012, he recorded his first solo record titled Organ Solos and shortly after formed a backing band called The Gypsy Chorus to release his second album We Will Go To Hell For This.

Raised by musical parents, George Morris was born to write and perform music. He began making an impact on the Detroit music scene in the mid 2000’s with the Satin Peaches. In summer 2007 the Satin Peaches were included in the lineup of Lollapalooza. The band gained international exposure when they hooked up with Oasis manager Marcus Russell and signed on with the major label Island Records. Citing “lack of collaborative inspiration” the band called it quits in 2010 and George immediately focused on writing new material, expanding his guitar chops, piano skills and strategizing the next move. In 2012 he recorded a solo record entitled Organ Solos. Following Oragn Solos, was his second solo release We Will Go To Hell For This. With a solid live lineup featuring Helena Kirby, Zach Pliska, Doug Diedrich, and Ronny Tibbs, known as the Gypsy Chorus, George Morris is now ready to continue his musical quest with renewed spirituality, passion and a zest for finding the perfect musical soundtrack for our human experience.
