Following the enormous praise she received for her stunning 2019 sophomore LP 'Feeding Seahorses By Hand', Billie Marten has now announced her plans for a new studio album, arriving later this year.
The new full-length 'Flora Fauna' was recorded alongside Rich Cooper in London, is being previewed by the new single 'Garden Of Eden', and is expected to be released on the 21st May via Fiction Records.
Speaking about the new song, she said, "It’s a song of growth, and competition to evolve as individuals in an increasingly suffocating and vacuous society. I liked the idea of humans growing up like tomatoes in the greenhouse, needing water and oxygen and space, but not getting any of it. The idea of seeking the natural elements and needing only that to survive plays into my constant dichotomy of living urban or bucolic. The choruses act as a burst of relief to allow space to breathe and to express that want of living right. This was one of the first pivotal songs for me as the general sentiment breeds happiness and optimism, which is something I wasn’t particularly familiar with thus far."
