Last month, we finally got our mitts on the artwork and tracklist for Laura Marling’s upcoming second album I Speak Because I Can, the first of two full-length releases she has planned this year, and we’re even happier to hear that the Hampshire folk darling will be gracing Camden Barfly on March 23 for what the club’s Fly Presents are accurately, tantalisingly calling an “intimate” gig. Tickets go on sale at midday today from barflyclub.com, but you may want to hedge your bets by taking part in a competition the club are running that goes live on Friday morning at www.the-fly.co.uk.

I Speak Because I Can
[EMI; March 22]
The final piece of the puzzle dropped into place today for Laura Marling’s forthcoming album I Speak Because I Can with the unveiling of the rather mysterious artwork you see above. The first of an intended two full-lengths for 2010, and one that’s already been drawing huge acclaim from those who’ve heard it, the album is one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of the Spring. Details have also emerged about the bonus content you’ll be able to find on the bonus DVD that comes with the special edition version: a 45-minute documentary, live performances from the Laura Marling & Friends show at the Royal Festival Hall last year [review], and the video for upcoming single ‘Devil’s Spoke’ (out March 15). What’s more, the DVD will allow access to an area of Laura’s website where tracks from many of the artists who appeared at the sell-out gig will be free to download.

Laura Marling’s new album I Speak Because I Can may have been delayed for three weeks, pushing it back to March 22, but we suspect her fans will forgive her with the news today that Laura plans to release another album in September. While details surrounding the second release remain sketchy at present, we do know that recording will take place in March and that producer Ethan Johns, the man behind I Speak Because I Can, will helm the project once again.
