Following the recent release of Laura Marling’s highly acclaimed second EP, ‘My Manic And I’, and its limited special book format (“best booklet with download code for EP” NME), we are excited to announce the release date of her debut album in a unique ‘Song Box’ format.
The album (title TBC) will be released on 4th February ’08 and will initially be available in a limited one-off beautifully printed Song Box designed inside and out by Laura, offering a keepsake for her fans in which to keep their music and other mementos. It will contain:
- A concert ticket
- CD copy of the album
- Mementos relating to each song on the album
The concert ticket will be printed with a unique code allowing the fan to register online at lauramarling.com to gain access to the nearest of five concerts which will take place in March:
- Tuesday 4th March – Glasgow, Oran Mor
- Wednesday 5th March – Birmingham, Glee Club
- Thursday 6th March – London, Scala

Using Ticket Text’s innovative mobile technology, customers will receive their tickets as unique barcodes sent via text message straight to their mobile phone. Customers simply take their phone to the venue and the barcode will be scanned to gain them admittance.
The package is likely to retail around £20, will be available to pre-order through lauramarling.com and will be chart ineligible.
