MARINA (previously of Marina and the Diamonds) is set to return with her eagerly anticipated new single ‘Handmade Heaven’.
Marina’s first solo material in four years, ‘Handmade Heaven’ is produced by Grammy award-winner Joel Little, known for his work with Lorde, Khalid and Sam Smith. The powerful, self-penned track finds Marina imagining a world as simple as the beautiful creatures and nature that surround her.
‘Handmade Heaven’ is the first taste of Marina’s forthcoming new album following a three year hiatus from the music industry. Marina used her break as a period of reflection and to rediscover her authentic self, as opposed to the artist and persona (‘and The Diamonds’) she had lived and breathed since signing her record deal at the age of 22. As part of her journey, she created MarinaBook as a vehicle to talk about topics outside of music that felt important to her (social media, material status, mental health, psychology) and went back to university to study human personality and attachment theory.
Marina has spent the past two years writing and recording the new record across London, Sweden and LA with esteemed names including Noonie Bao, Sam De Jong, Oscar Görres, Camille Purcell, Justin Parker and Joe Janiak.
‘Handmade Heaven’ is released now via Atlantic Records.
