    First of all "another" is used in singular meaning one more: another cup of tea, another day, another lesson etc. You can use "other" both in singular and in plural: the other cup of tea, the other cups of tea, the other day(concerning to the past), the other days, the other lesson or the other lessons etc.

    Yes, "another" came form "an/one other"; that is why it is always singular.
