Laura Marling album gets release date in US
Laura Marling's debut album, Alas I Cannot Swim has been out in the UK since February, but she can finally see the release of her debut disc in the States, as the album has been released on I-tunes as of May 20th. Although only 18 years old when the album dropped, Marling's folk & country tinged pop sounds have drawn comparisons to heavyweights such as Feist and even Regina Spektor. For now fans will have to settle for the album in digital only form as a physical release of the album won't be hitting American shores until August 19th.
To help celebrate the release in the US, Marling has announced two shows that will take place in New York next month. The UK singer will play at Glasslands in Brooklyn on June 16 and then at the Mercury Lounge on June 18.
Be sure to check out the tracks "My Manic And I" and "Ghosts".
