Net als de vorige plaat werd de nieuwe EP opgenomen in de Southern Ground studio gelegen in Nashville, Tennessee. Desalniettemin zijn de nummers op Morning After rauwer, harder en snijden andere onderwerpen aan dan de semi-onschuldige coming-of-age liedjes op ‘Morning Sun’. Zo verlegt het nummer ‘Goldmine’ de grenzen van Americana en neigt zelfs naar indierock. Het laat zien dat Judy Blank zich, zowel op persoonlijk als op muzikaal vlak, niet makkelijk laat binden.
Over de EP zegt Judy: ‘’It’s funny how success is such a relative thing’’, Blank says. ‘’I’ve been able to do a lot of rad things since I started releasing new material last year, and for the longest time I believed I’d be happy if only I’d be asked to do these things, but internally I was a hot mess between recording and releasing Morning Sun. I became restless, rebellious, and did a bunch of dumb things in an attempt to escape the stress that comes with an album release. As a result, the songs I wrote turned out a lot rawer than the ones I wrote in the care-free years before recording the album. Writing songs has always been my way to navigate through and understand life, and the past year has been equally confusing as eye-opening. I’ve been trying to process my emotions through writing songs since I was 15, and these were just weird emotions I’d never experienced before. And since you can’t un-feel any feelings, even if they’re feelings you don’t want to have; that’s what I ended up writing about.’’
