She will now play sixteen Secret Cinema events in a mystery east London venue
Laura Marling has added a further eight dates to her run of ‘immersive’ live shows which are set to take place in London next month.
The singer-songwriter has joined forces with Secret Cinema – who stage themed ‘live’ movie nights – to “bring to life” her forthcoming new album, ‘Once I Was An Eagle’, which is set for release on May 27. The first batch of shows from June 13-21 sold out in record time, so she will now be playing eight more events in a secret east London location from June 22-23, 25-30. Tickets for the new dates are on sale now.
A press release for the event says: “Featuring a live performance by Laura, audiences will travel through a secret world of the album that will be layered across the building, breathing life into lyrics, where they are invited to become a part of the performance.” For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page. Artists and musicians are being invited to help ‘build the world’ by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
They add: “Secret Cinema will bring a music artist’s work to life… with dancers, artists, actors and an incredible secret location.” Secret Cinema have previously collaborated with Radiohead, Atoms For Peace, Massive Attack and The Knife and are planning more music events in the future.
‘Once I Was An Eagle’ is the follow-up to 2011’s ‘A Creature I Don’t Know’. Her fourth album, it was recorded at the Three Crows Studio owned by producer and solo musician Ethan Johns (Kings Of Leon, Ryan Adams, The Vaccines), with Dom Monks on engineering duties.
