Billie Marten has shared a new song called ‘Creature of Mine’. It’s the latest offering from the North Yorkshire singer-songwriter’s upcoming third album, Flora Fauna, which is out May 21 via Fiction Records. Check it out below, alongside an accompanying video directed by Joe Wheatley.
“It’s an end of the world, post-apocalyptic scenario – you get to choose one thing, one person to leave it with,” Marten said of the new song in a statement. “It’s a love song to a stranger and a polite request to momentarily leave Earth when it’s all too much.”
Of the video, she added: “Joe and I wanted this video to represent that needless search for something other than what you have. Something intangible and elusive, something also quite beautiful and abstract to pair with the song – an inconclusively painted picture.”
Flora Fauna follows Billie Marten’s 2019 album Feeding Seahorses by Hand. Her debut LP, Writing of Blues and Yellows, came out in 2016.
