Laura Marling Soundtracks Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’

Laura MarlingIn addition to her fourth LP, Once I Was An Eagle, Laura Marling has another new project due to surface this year: William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, directed by Maria Aberg and featuring music penned by Marling with lyrics inspired by the 17th century play. Produced by England’s Royal Shakespeare Company, the play is set to debut in April at their Elizabethan-style theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. As You Like It runs through September 28th, but for those of us on the other side of the pond, the RSC have shared a teaser trailer complete with one of Marling’s tracks recorded for the project.
