Meanwhile, Marling’s forthcoming new album ‘Once I Was An Eagle’, is set for release on May 27. The follow-up to 2011’s ‘A Creature I Don’t Know’ was recorded at the Three Crows Studio owned by producer and solo musician Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams, Vaccines), with Dom Monks on engineering duties.
Last month, Marling unveiled the first four tracks from the album via a short film, entitled When Brave Bird Saved – watch it here.
The film was directed by Fred & Nick, who commented: “When Brave Bird Saved is an introduction to a visual journey directly inspired, informed, and narrated by the first four tracks of ‘Once I Was An Eagle’. Having collaborated with Laura over the last four years, the ambition and scope of this film marks an exciting new direction for us – and we were given total freedom to focus strongly on the distinct journey of the four tracks.”
