Published Dec 17, 2014British-born, L.A.-based folk singer Laura Marling has revealed plans for a new LP called Short Movie, due out in the new year.
The new record marks the follow-up to 2013's Once I Was an Eagle and is slated to arrive on March 24 in North American via Ribbon Music and a day earlier overseas through Virgin EMI.
A press release explains: "Short Movie sees Marling moving into new musical territory and may surprise fans with its prevalence of electric guitar. Along with plugging in for the first time, Marling chose to produce the album herself (along with her drummer Matt Ingram). She pushed her band to record live and insisted the string players perform 'blind,' only hearing each track once before recording their parts. The result is a far bigger, bolder and looser sounding album than any of its predecessors."
Marling has also unveiled a new animated clip for the album's title track. Directed by Art & Graft, it features a horse galloping through a picturesque desert backdrop, mirroring the song as it gains momentum and builds towards Marling's repeated declaration of: "It's a short fucking movie, man."
