Yes! Yes! Yes!

We've been waiting for this news for so long, and it's finally here!

Marina and the Diamonds has announced their new album, Electra Heart, will be released on April 30th, with its lead single, Primadonna, dropping April 16th!

According to the press release:

Electra Heart’ is a huge leap forward for Marina and promises to be one of the most exciting pop releases of 2012, underlining that she is amongst the most talented young British artists around. A ground-to-air missile of ambitious and confident songs, ‘Electra Heart’ was written and recorded in London and LA over the last 18 months whilst on tour. Featuring 12 brand new self-written tracks, Marina handpicked a close group of collaborators to write and produce with including Dr Luke (Katy Perry), Rick Nowels (Madonna), Liam Howe (Sneaker Pimps) and Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen).

And Marina explains the concept behind the album:

”It's an Ode to dysfunctional love. I based the project around character types commonly found in love stories, film and theatre, usually ones associated with power and control in love, as opposed to weakness or defeat. I guess it was a way of dealing with the embarrassment that, for the first time in my life, I got 'played'. Rejection is a universally embarrassing topic and Electra Heart is my response to that. It is a frank album”

AMAZING!

We have absolutely been ENTHRALLED with what we've heard so far, so we can only imagine what's to come!

    OK!!! Marina wrote a tweet .. say "@MuuMuse If it's your birthday, Bradley, i'm gonna grant your wish, this is a private party, V.I.P in this beetch"
    This is lyrics of Primma Donna- Christina Aguilera .. This first single is a cover or something of Primma Donna of Bionic.. The Album of Xtina
    1. Madonna with Minaj+M.I.A.
    2. Marina with Primma Donna
    3. Maybe Rihanna ft Xtina.. Birthday Cake
    Then say that Bionic was a failure … Please has sold over 2 million copies.. Only 2 singles.. and little promotion…

    Re: marlonlp7 – oh ffs it is not a cover of christina's song. marina would never record a song like that, it just isn't her style, let alone the fact that the song is quite frankly crap. and bionic was a failure…
