" It's just surreal and ridiculous and wasteful. "
Eventually, in 2011, Morris signed to Atlantic Records for a " weird" amount of money.
The label warned her she " had a lot of work to do" before she'd be ready to release a debut Album - But when That Album , Unguarded, arrived in 2015 it went straight into The Top 10, with critics praising its " " and " ".
Her 2018 follow-up, Someone Out There , was even better.
Blending Bjorkian beats with soaring pop melodies, it shimmered with raw emotion. Morris captured the joy of falling in love with her producer Benjamin Garrett on; and conveyed aching loss on - a tear-jerker on par with the poignant opening sequence of Pixar's film Up.
Despite rave reviews, The Album stalled at number 20 in The Charts . Compared with label-mates like Anne-Marie and Ed Sheeran , Morris wasn't balancing The Books . Eventually, she got The Call she'd been dreading.
Despite those strains, she felt " lost and stressed" when The Connection was severed.
To pull her out of the funk, Garrett sat her down for an impromptu " job interview".
" All of this stuff came out and I was like, 'Okay, there it is. '"
" Ordinarily, if I'd been signed to a label we would have had to go, 'Okay, But how do You make That commercial? How do You streamline That ?'" she says. " But instead of doing That , Ben and I just started Making Music . "
" Someone at my old label described me as 'an Island ', because I didn't give enough of myself to people at parties and events, " she explains.
In lesser hands, No Woman Is An Island could easily have been bitter. Morris gives it warmth and humour.
Society reduces women to stereotypes, she sings, when really they hold " universes inside their heads" - from anxieties and memories and hopes and fears to " Kardashians in swimming pools" and recipes for Banana Bread .
" I'm good at stereotypically female roles like cleaning and laundry, " she says, grinning That this also irritates her.
More significantly, motherhood banished a tendency to " stress out about things That didn't warrant it".
It's a long way from Morris's perfectly ordinary upbringing in Blackpool, as The Child of a firefighter and an NHS worker.
Spitting From The Top is set at The Peak of the Blackpool Tower, while is a dreamy Disney ballad about escaping to her family's house in the Lake District " where The Blueberries glow and The Internet 's slow".
The nostalgia is punctuated by several songs about her Love Affair with Garrett. The gorgeous recalls The First flushes of their courtship, All " obsessive intimacy" and " dirty sheets" while Skyscraper Love pokes affectionate fun at his height (he's 6ft6in).
They even duet on the playful Go Dancing, in which Morris is fired up for a night on the tiles, and Garrett is determined to stay At Home - a situation That will resonate with anyone in a long-term relationship.
" We don't talk about death often in our Society - But I think it's a nice thing to tell someone You love, 'We'll meet again at our favourite crappy restaurant and have a really cheap bottle of wine'.
" I don't think it gets more simple and real than That . "
" The older I get, the more sure I Am of what I should be doing, " she says.
