Life is full of both highs and lows, and full of both beauty and pain. IUs sequel to the successful A Flower Bookmark remake album from 2014 reflects this with songs personally chosen by IU. A Flower Bookmark 2 shifts from joy and euphoria to despair and misery in a journey through the emotions of life. With this album, it feels like IU has made something universal, something relatable to us all.
One half of the album explores the beauty of life and the other half looks at the pains of life. Autumn Morning fits into the former category. The pre-release track is an ode to this season filled with warm affection for life. Its a cover of Yang Hee-euns song from 1991 in which she finds beauty in the everyday moments of life like the sound of birds chirping, the fresh scent of morning and children walking to school. IU has kept the minimalist style of Yang Hee-euns original song and the vocal style, singing mostly without any accompaniment. The choice to retain the style of the original works due to the strength of IUs voice that is able to maintain the essential simplicity of the original song.
