Here’s hoping Laura Marling plans to put this batch to tape soon, as “I Was An Eagle,” “Pray for Me,” and “Once” are sounding worthy of release to these ears — even in their early live form, where she’s said it’s best to risk a mistake or two to keep things fresh. The latest piece of road-tested material comes courtesy of BBC 6 Music’s 10th birthday celebration, for which Marling and her band performed a full radio set in front of a live audience and film crew. The whole show can be viewed here in the U.K. and elsewhere thataway. The promising new tune is below:
In other news, Marling has a few Record Store Day releases due out later this month.
