Laura Marling's fifth record - Short Movie - marked a new chapter in the singer-songwriter's career. The album emerged from a period of "universal humbling": a year and a half spent travelling around America, applying for poetry courses, getting rejected from poetry courses, and recording an entire album before discarding it because, as she told the Guardian earlier this year, "it just wasn't interesting". In some ways, Marling's records have always been characterised by her surroundings, but on Short Movie she went electric; her own Dylan moment, if you will. The result? Thirteen tracks of bold revelations, pumped full of energy and experience, sounding much more free and expansive than anything Marling had released prior.
Short Movie has now been re-released as a Director's Cut - featuring newly reworked versions of solo songs, played in a live band setting. Above is one of those tracks. Called "I Feel Your Love", Marling describes the video (which she co-directed with Cherise Payne) as a perfect illustration of the “alchemical change that occurs within a musical group when you add a new brain or flavor to it”.
