    Oh it's gorgeous and everything I want from her, albeit not the storming lead single I might have hoped for. It's just so luscious and I'm glad she's doing her and not hit chasing given it will NEVER work for her it seems.

    It’s nice in a track 10 from the album kind of way. Not really what I wanted from the first single though.

    i don’t really think marina is existing in a ‘lead single’ ‘second single’ etc kind of situation. she’s got an incredibly loyal fan group who will come and see her live...that counts for more than a stray spotify play; she hasn’t been a chart-force for a long time!

    i actually am so excited for this era

    Don’t get me wrong I’m still excited. But I certainly don’t want an album full of songs like this.
    I’d be a devoted fan and see her live if only she’d tour here :(

    Oh come on, coming back with Froot was such a triumph. So she’s capable of that. This is just nice.

    I'm listening to Savages and Blue in order to forget about this boring song

    There's a feature on her in The Guardian today, although the tone is fairly pass-ag in places for what's positioned as a bit of a puff piece.

    It was in the top 100 in the 70s in the chart update...which is STILL better than I expected!

    It's top 20 on the HYPE chart, not the actual chart :D

    That's what I get for not clicking through the link - it was, in fairness, on the Official Charts twitter and it was early...

    Slightly less relevant than the NMTop40. Still, higher than the Pepsi Max chart in the overall hierarchy.

    Aye, sorry about that. I blame the Official Charts twitter feed.

    So it’s a two eight track cd set for Love & Fear. Interesting. I like the covers too.

    Looks like it's only 2 discs on the vinyl, it's being put on 1CD.

    Tracklisting is a bit...well, vanilla. "Life Is Strange", "You", "Enjoy Your Life"...I hope the lyrics aren't The Little Book Of Mindfulness set to music.

    I fear she's become a total hippy and this album will be all "love everyone, don't be scared, everything will be fine" and, by the time it comes out, Britain will be pretty much in civil war mode post-Brexit. Read the fucking room, Maz.

    What exactly were you all expecting, a thought provoking piece of abstract art? :D

    She looks fine. Lovely in fact. Yeah it's not exciting and it might be her worst cover but none of them are especially iconic. I didn't like the "Electra Heart" cover anyway.

    Anyway I'm gutted I missed London tickets for this, they were gone in SECONDS. I'm so shit at this pre-sale business too. "Pre-order the album to get exclusive access" - but no sorry, you've done it a day late. Ok, so go for pre-sale on one of the ticket sites - nope, all gone before I'd even started despite queuing me up. So then it's general sale which queued me up forever dead on 9am and 15 minutes later not a drop left :D:( It always happens.

    Manchester it is, then - which when factoring in the travel probably works out the same as whatever extortionate price people are selling them on for but oh well.

    It's quite shit, unfortunately. My high hopes for this album are rapidly deteriorating
