New Laura Marling single - out today

Laura Marling's recent album I Speak Because I Can didn't quite live up to my expectations. Understatement is an all well and good, but portions of Laura's album were so reserved that the CD's raw data was a constant string of zeroes. Not that she needs to worry about my opinion - the record was a whisker away from winning this year's Mercury prize. Shows what I know.

A second album was planned in time for Christmas but, for one reason or another, it's been delayed until February. In its place is a limited edition 7-inch vinyl, out today, where Laura covers Neil Young's The Needle and the Damage Done, and Jackson C. Frank's Blues Run the Game.

Jack White was in charge of the mixing desk - but since both tracks are just voice and guitar, his job mostly consisted of putting the guitar through a crackling old valve amp. Simple, but effective.
