The Morning After has officially announced that it has started working on the early stages of its new full length studio release. The band has announced that Grammy winning former Carolina Chocolcate Drops member and current Mary Annettes member Justin Robinson will produce the band’s new album.

The Morning After has officially debuted the video for its new single, ‘Warm Like The Sun.’ The video from the Raleigh, North Carolina based band follows a young couple that is out on a date. From bowling a few rounds to a walk through the park to a casual dinner that turns out to be for more than two, the young couple is trailed everywhere by the band. They’re even snagged by the band and brought on board the band’s bus at the song’s end. Anyone that’s a fan of British comedy will appreciate the video’s park “chase scene” as it seems to pay tribute to the old Benny Hill show. Audiences that have yet to experience The Morning After’s music are in for quite the experience with this fun, quirky video. It can be viewed online now at http://www.reverbnation.com/artist/video/10874634?eid=A848646_16054880_48862398_lnk1000.
