Billie Marten has shared her graceful new song ‘Nothing But Mine’.
The songwriter is on a great run just now, with her 2021 album ‘Flora Fauna’ earning huge acclaim. Heading straight back into the studio, new album ‘Drop Cherries’ – out on April 7th – was recorded entirely on tape in Somerset and Wales last summer.
New song ‘Nothing But Mine’ is out now, and it began life as a honky sketch on the studio piano. Penned in the evening, it’s a work of loose energy, with Billie Marten leaning on the more playful, exuberant aspects of her work.
“This was one we did right after dinner, everyone was loose, I started playing the song on the honky tonk in the corner. No one knew the song, this was I think the first / second take, it’s all about fluidity and losing yourself in the throes of sub consciousness.”
“The line ‘wash my mouth, empty out all the dirt that you found’ was in reference to the dirt I carried from the previous album (cover), eradicating the judgement and darkness. I really enjoyed this one.”
Tune in now.
