MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS’ THIRD ALBUM “FROOT” RELEASES WITH A PUNCH

marina2
Marina And The Diamond’s third album, “FROOT,” is out earlier than the planned April release because of a leak. Once released, there were no worries, however, that the early release could have hurt interest in the album – it is now sitting pretty at #8 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200, with sales in excess of 46k – Marina’s highest chart placement and greatest overall sales week to date. “FROOT” also debuted at #4 on the Top Albums Chart, and reached even higher, to #1, on iTunes Store’s “Top Albums” chart in the U.S. as well as Argentina, Greece, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, where the Welsh-born songstress is from. Loyal fans have stuck with her despite a significant change in musical tone, and some even say genre, with the new album sounding a lot more introspective, moodier, and softer than her previous Electra Heart album. Critics are also impressed with her new sophisticated sound, calling her “… just about the best pop star in the UK.”

Marina has spent recent days in the spotlight, making high profile TV appearances on ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Late Night with Seth Myers. Be sure to look out for our own shoot and exclusive interview with the songstress in The Untitled Magazine‘s forthcoming Girl Power Issue!

Hailed worldwide as a striking and creative live artist, Marina will celebrate “FROOT” with an epic world tour, including U.S. headline dates and appearances at such upcoming festivals as Indio, California’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (April 12th and 19th), Boston’s Boston Calling Music Festival (May 22nd), Columbia, Maryland’s Sweetlife (May 30th), New York City’s Governors Ball NYC Music Festival (June 5th), Toronto’s Field Trip (June 7th), and Montreal’s Osheaga Festival Musique et Arts (July 31st).
