Laura Marling has said that she wrote her new album 'A Creature I Don't Know' by herself to stop other people from getting their "grubby mitts on it".

In an interview with The Guardian, the singer claimed that writing and demoing material on her own and allowed to put her own stamp on the LP – something she did not feel she'd been able to do with her previous two records.

Marling, who releases 'A Creature I Don't Know' on September 12, said that her debut album 'Alas I Cannot Swim' belonged as much to her ex-boyfriend and Noah And The Whale singer Charlie Fink, who produced the LP, as it did to her.

She also suggested that her sophomore effort, 'I Speak Because I Can', was heavily indebted to producer Ethan Johns.

When asked about starting to prepare material for the album on her own, she said:

It was quite an interesting way of doing it because it allowed to put my stamp on it before anybody else put their stamp on it. With the first two albums – Charlie produced 'Alas I Cannot Swim', and it's as much his album as it is mine, and with 'I Speak Because I Can', the style of the drumming and the bass playing is very much a representation of the characters who were playing on that album, and Ethan stepping in as well.



She went on to add:

This time I thought: 'Well, I've got the confidence now, and I know what I want it to sound like, so before anybody else gets their grubby mitts on it, why don't I put my stamp on it?
