Marina LoveMarina has apparently decided to put “love” first. At least that’s what happened when she released half of the tracks from her upcoming album project Love + Fear. The eight tracks — all reflecting Marina’s concept of Love on the album, includes the previously released songs “Baby” with Clean Bandit and Luis Fonsi, “Superstar,” “Handmade Heaven” and “Orange Trees.”

“I created ‘LOVE + FEAR’ as 2 separate records to be listened to individually,” Marina explained on her Twitter account. “I’m releasing ‘LOVE’ today so you can listen to it in full before we move onto ‘FEAR.'”

When it is fully released on April 26th, the 2-record album set will be Marina’s first since she released her iconic pop album Froot back in 2015. At that time, Marina still went by the name “Marina and The Diamonds” while performing, but has since shorted her act’s professional title to just her first name.

You can listen to all eight tracks from Love below (and we’ve added the music videos where available as well).   Continue Reading →
