Billie Marten shares new track 'Human Replacement'

With her eagerly-awaited new album dropping in just a few days, Billie Marten has now unveiled the final cut to be taken from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Human Replacement' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Joe Wheatley, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Creature Of Mine' and 'Garden Of Eden' in previewing her new LP 'Flora Fauna', which is out this Friday 21st May via Fiction Records.

Speaking about the new video, she said, "This video is absolutely needed to match the message of the song, which was initially something I shied away from talking about. As creative discussions began between Joe Wheatley (Director) and I it became incredibly important to convey the absurdity of simply not being able to go out anywhere at night as a woman particularly, without that hideous stone-cold fear of what might happen to you. Hence every woman in the video needing the comfort and protection of full army gear to carry out the simplest of everyday tasks (like going for a run or walking home from work) and every man is without it. My trusty safety tank gets me to the shop for a pint of milk. It’s a deliberately absurd illustration of a disturbingly real problem that needed to be addressed."
