Following the recent release of her second EP, Eversley’s Laura Marling has announced early details of her forthcoming debut album.
Alas I Cannot Swim will be out through Virgin Records on the 4th of February. A single – the elusive and alluring ‘Ghosts’ - will come out a week beforehand, on the 28th of January.
The album will initially only be available in what the bumf calls “a unique ‘Song Box’ format” which as far as I can tell means the packaging will be grand and will contain not just the CD, but a concert ticket and – quoting again - “mementos relating to each song on the album”.
The concert ticket will have a unique code, which will grant entry to one of these five shows:
4 Glasgow Oran Mor
5 Birmingham Glee Club
6 London Scala
7 Bristol Trinity Arts Centre
8 Manchester Academy 2
Register online with the code and a unique bar-code will be sent flying through the air onto your mobile phone. Presuming you have one, of course. If not we presume you’re fucked.
