Laura Marling

UK folk singer Laura Marling, who performed a breathtaking set at CMJ 2009, will be putting out two records this year. The first of those, I Speak Because I Can, comes out April 6th (March 22nd in UK/Europe) on Astralwerks. On the album, her backing band is Mumford & Sons, a quartet of expert harmonizers who are playing a sold-out Bowery show in February. The record also features production from Ethan Johns (who’s worked with Kings of Leon & Ryan Adams). He’ll also be recording her second 2010 album (scheduled for fall) in the coming months.

Marling tours the US and Canada this February. That includes a show at NYC’s (Le) Poisson Rouge on Friday, February 12th. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Wheel, who first shared a bill with Laura at the BV CMJ show at MHOW in 2009, will open all North American dates for Laura including the NYC show which is still on sale.

For more Wheel, check out the Daytrotter session that was posted in December.

Laura is also scheduled to play the UK in April. All tour dates and album art & info, as well as the video for her new single “Devil’s Spoke,” are below…
