Laura Marling has revealed that she is now not going to release two albums this year – but the extra time will make her third album better.

The singer, who features in the 2010 [url=]NME Cool List[/url], [url=]had originally planned to release a second album in 2010, following the release in March of her second record ‘I Speak Because I Can'[/url].

However Marling now says fans will have to wait a little bit longer for her next release.

“It’s not going to be this year, but it’s good,” she explained. “It will be on its way soon, which is nice. It’s becoming different from the last album actually, because I’ve scrapped a bit of it halfway through. I hope to have it done by February. Setting deadlines is not my favourite thing!”

To see where Marling is in this year’s Cool List and for an exclusive interview get this week’s issue of NME on UK newsstands, or available digitally worldwide right now.
