Billie Marten announces new album 'Feeding Seahorses By Hand'

Having already returned earlier this year to deliver the singles 'Mice' and 'Blue Sea, Red Sea', Billie Marten has now announced her plans for a new studio album, arriving next month.

The new full-length 'Feeding Seahorses By Hand' follows on from her critically-acclaimed 2016 debut album 'Writing Of Blues And Yellows', is being previewed by the newly unveiled track 'Betsy', and is set to be released on the 26th April via Sony/Chess Club Records.

Speaking about her latest cut lifted from the record, she added, “It was the first time I’d tried jamming with someone and had the pressure of writing instant, spontaneous lyrics. They poured out actually, it’s about confronting a politician, no one in particular, but sort of ridiculing them. I liked the idea of using number 9 instead of 10. I didn’t want the big political stance, and I didn’t want to single out a specific human, it’s representing parliament as a whole institution really. The song turns the wise old politician into a child, infantilising them takes away their power. I think most people feel a bit unsafe with it all, because it’s impossible relate to these characters. No one shows any personal weakness or empathy, and if they do, they’ve already cracked”.
