“I’ve always been told that I’m an old soul. And I’m not. I justhave a deep voice and a stern face. I am actually young. I hadn’t had chance tostop and think about that before.”

 

A little over a year ago, LauraMarling came off the road after touring her hugely successful fourth album OnceI Was an Eagle, and immediately set about recording its successor. “I literally rolled out of the van and intothe studio — a decision made by my own stubbornness,” she recalls. “And then I just stopped cold turkey.” Marling’sfifth album, Short Movie, is the result of an extended period of stoppingand thinking. “I realised that I hadn’tbeen in a place for longer than two or three weeks since I was 16,” sheexplains. “I thought ‘I wonder what will happen if I try and root myselfsomewhere?‘ Look back over the past eight years.”


If Short Movie provesanything it is that stopping, thinking, and making a little sense out of lifehas had a profound effect on both Marling’s songwriting and how she viewsherself: “Underneath the noise I wasthinking most of the time what the process of creation is,” she says. “I would never have called it creation orart before, what I do, it seemed aggrandizing. But now i see it differently.Because there is something divine about how things are done and created out ofnowhere, we are only a means for them, they are therefore beyond us sillyhumans.”
