Laura Marling : Live From York Minster

In April of this year, Virgin released a 2CD version of Laura Marling’s current album ‘A Creature I Don’t Know’. The second CD featured a live performance from York Minster Cathedral which draws together songs from all three albums and is already a formidable ‘greatest hits’ set. This performance wasn’t included with the vinyl release and we thought it was too good not to grace the black stuff. We asked Virgin if we could release it and happily, we were given permission to put this stunning album out as a stand alone release.

Marling is touring her new album ‘A Creature I Don’t Know’, and songs such as The Muse and Sophia bristle with hooks and literary imagery. But perhaps she has other reasons for playing here. Her songbook bulges with references to her desire for – and struggles with – religion. If lines such as “I don’t believe in everlasting love” gently rebuke Christian teachings, the electric, brooding The Beast – which sees her cry “tonight he lies with me” under startling red light – is positively satanic.The Guardian
