She’s given us The Crown Jewels already on June’s EP, but for her long-awaited debut album, Marina Diamandis is getting personal, bringing it all back home. Describing The Family Jewels (out February 15 through 679/Atlantic) as “a body of work largely inspired by the seduction of commercialism, modern social values, family and female sexuality”, Marina says the dozen songs that make up the album should be consumed as “a story and theory that encourages people to question themselves.” Featuring the singles ‘Obsessions’, ‘Mowgli’s Road’ and the forthcoming ‘Hollywood’ (out February 1), plus the star cut from The Crown Jewels EP, ‘I Am Not A Robot’, the part-autobiographical, part-fairytale album looks set to be one of 2010’s most talked about debuts. Production comes from former Sneaker Pimps man Liam Howe plus Kylie and Ladyhawke collaborators Biff Stannard and Pascal Gabriel.
