Laura Marling – I Speak Because I Can – Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)

Laura Marling is set to release her second full length studio album in March 2010. The album, recently given the title ‘I Speak Because I Can’ was produced by Ethan Johns. At one point, this second album was to have a medieval theme to it but Marling later revoked this idea.

‘Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)’ was released 14th December. First played on tour a year ago, the song is just as apt this winter with much of England currently under snow. Laura Marling aired the track on BBC 6 Music in November along with another track Made a Maid which might also be on the upcoming album.

To listen to her is to love her…. kind of. Her songs, like this one, are mostly great, subtly universal, and altogether sweet. Hope to have her new album soon. Bye all.
