Billie Marten Announces New Album ‘Drop Cherries’, Shares Video for New Single

    Billie Marten has announced her fourth album, Drop Cherries. The follow-up to 2021’s Flora Fauna is set for release on April 7 via Fiction Records and marks the first time that Marten serves as both a writer and co-producer (with Dom Monks) on one of her records. Lead single ‘This Is How We Move‘ is out today, and you can check it out below along with album artwork and tracklist.

    In a statement, the singer-songwriter described ‘This Is How We Move’ as “a song about finding the natural rhythm and pacing between two people,” adding: “Working together and flowing as one – the relationship dance. John Martyn / JJ Cale ease of recording. Double bass Nick Pini. ‘You keep the garden, and I’ll take the view, this is how we move.’ Different wants and needs, catering for each other’s happiness. DESERVING TO BE LOVED.”

    Of the album, she commented: “Dropping cherries is such a strong, visceral image that I tried to channel throughout recording in Somerset and Wales, to capture the vibrancy, unpredictability, and occasional chaos one experiences within a relationship. Imagine stamping blood-red cherries onto a clean, cream carpet and tell me that’s not how love feels.”
