Laura Marling has revealed that she has finished writing her new album and plans to release it in early 2013.
Marling, who is currently touring across North America in support of her third album A Creature I Don’t Know, has said that she has completed the writing of its follow-up and is now recording it with producer Ethan Johns.
Speaking to The Owl, Marling said of her progress in writing new material: “I finished writing a new album about a month ago. At the moment I’m in and out of the studio working with Ethan Johns. It will probably be released in about 6 months.”
When it is released, Marling’s new album will be the fourth effort of her career so far and will cap a prolific four-year spell which has seen her release three studio albums.
The singer will play a one-off UK show next month, headlining London’s Royal Albert Hall on July 7. She is also booked to perform at Latitude Festival, which takes place from July 13 – 15 in Henham Park, Suffolk.
