Laura Marling - Once I Was An Eagle CD
Laura Marling's new album, Once I Was An Eagle
, the follow up to 2011's stand out A Creature I Don't Know
, is a hugely ambitious album reflecting the poise and confidence of a songwriter far beyond her years (23). Recorded in the English countryside with longtime collaborator and producer Ethan Johns, the album's loose narrative traverses heartbreak, vulnerability, resurgence, confidence, and lastly contemplation. Once I Was An Eagle
steps farther outside the conventions of Laura's previous albums, an opportunity to fully explore her songwriting process while abandoning expectations.
