Marling releases her fifth album, ‘Short Movie’, on March 23. She recently revealed that she’s “managed to resist EDM” on the forthcoming electronic album, adding that the record was inspired by her time in America and her feelings of being “desperately lost in translation”.

The singer-songwriter, who’s been living in LA for two years, wrote her new album in America at the beginning of 2014. In the new issue of Uncut, she revealed that the record was based on the fear the country induced in her, including the track ‘Small Poke’, which was written after her experience of Hurricane Sandy in New York and “the horror of being in an enormous metropolis with no power”.

Laura Marling will play:

Hebden Bridge The Trades Club (January 28)
London The Silver Bullet (31)
Edinburgh The Caves (February 4)
Bristol Thekla (7)
