Laura Marling – “False Hope”

Laura Marling is following up 2013’s Once I Was An Eagle — one of the best albums of that year — with Short Movies, and she’s just shared another track from it. Just like the already released title track, “False Hope” picks up the momentum at a galloping pace, with Marling traveling through what seems like at least two solid hooks and never settling on one of them. “Is it still okay that I still don’t know how to be alone?” she opens asks at the start of the track. “I hear you crying to the wall,” she later shouts over herself, her voices battling it out to see who lands on top. Listen below.

Short Movie is out 3/24 on Ribbon in the US, 3/23 on Virgin EMI in the UK.
