BILLIE MARTEN has announced a run of record store shows in support of her fourth record Drop Cherries, which will be released on 7th April via Fiction Records.
She will visit Liverpool Phase One on 12th April.
Billie Marten has today shared ‘I Can’t Get My Head Around You’, a brand new track taken from her upcoming fourth record Drop Cherries – out 7 April via Fiction Records. ‘I Can’t Get My Head Around You’ received its radio debut this morning on Lauren Laverne’s BBC Radio 6 Music show this morning
Marten will embark on a headline UK and North American tour beginning in May that includes a double date at London’s Lafayette on 26 & 27 May. Tickets for all shows are available HERE.
Marten explains of ‘I Can’t Get My Head Around You’: “This is very much a cruiser. One to turn up really loud on the long drive out of town or back home. I wrote the chorus way before the verse, had it for months and whenever I’d pick up a guitar it would reappear. The sentiment expresses a deep sense of homecoming, arrival at where you’d like to be, and also a slight implausibility of discovering a new era of gladness. I truly adore the band’s playing on this, so sweet, so natural, so alive.”
Recorded entirely on tape in Somerset and Wales late last summer, Drop Cherries marks the very first time that Billie Marten has both written and co-produced (with Dom Monks) one of her records; following critically-lauded 2021 album Flora Fauna, Feeding Seahorses by Hand (2019) and Writing of Blues and Yellows (2016).
