In late April from The Guardian came one of the most intimate interviews of Laura Marling yet! She decided to make a big change, and the Londoner moved to California. (Which makes me feel good about the direction my country is taking for the first time in a long time.)
“If you’re someone like me, who likes to be alone but doesn’t want to be lonely, this is a very good place to be. England is not. I think I can say that.”
You can read all about it here.

Laura Marling spoke about her project with the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. “I got the real fear about doing this,” she told the BBC.
When she was approached she was “daunted at first” because she had/has now knowledge of theatre “and I’d say not a huge knowledge of Shakespeare either”. She wrote the music and adapted the words of the songs that are already in the play. She enjoyed the challenge of writing the music for the play. Anyway, acting is not Laura’s cup of tea: “Absolutely not. That does not lie within me in any way”. But, she might do more music for plays in the future.
Next to talking about the Shakespeare-thing, Laura also expressed her opinion on talent shows like the X-factor and talked about her personal live. She moved to Los Angeles because she “needed a little break from the UK”. She said she found California “incredibly magical and beautiful”, despite missing her family and friends.
She also spoke about the persistence of this website; “I don’t see myself doing it [a career in music] forever, because I don’t think it’s any way to live, full-time.”
