Marina and The Diamonds announces New Single and Album

That’s right Marina and The Diamonds releases her brand new album Electra Heart on the 30th April with the first single to be taken from the album, Primadonna which is released on 16th April.
 Electra Heart is a huge leap forward for Marina and promises to be one of the most exciting pop releases of this year 2012 to emerge from the UK. The album was written and recorded in London and LA over the last 18 months whilst on tour and features 12 brand new self-written tracks after working with including Dr Luke, Rick NowelsLiam Howe and Greg Kurstin who have worked with the liked of Madonna, Katy Perry and Lily Allen.
 Electra Heart is a blisteringly honest story of identity, love, rejection, doomed romance and hope all tinged with humour and British eccentricity. 
Marina says about the album, ”It's an Ode to dysfunctional love. I based the project around character types commonly found in love stories, film and theatre, usually ones associated with power and control in love, as opposed to weakness or defeat. I guess it was a way of dealing with the embarrassment that, for the first time in my life, I got 'played'. Rejection is a universally embarrassing topic and Electra Heart is my response to that. It is a frank album”

Electra Heart is the follow up to Marina’s top five debut album The Family Jewels.  Known for her unique and iconic look, and for her attention to every detail of her creative output, she doesn’t disappoint on the artwork for Electra Heart. 
Full images and a video for Primadonna will be released soon.
The current track listing for the album is to include
Bubblegum Bitch,
Lies, Power and Control,
Starring Role,
The State of Dreaming,
Living Dead,
Sex Yeah,
Valley of the Dolls,
Fear and Loathing.
