shampaign dreams

Marina And The Diamonds are gunning for five singles from their/her debut album, "The Family Jewels", as "Shampaign" has been marked for the plucking.

It has already started making it's way onto playlists across Europe. That's dedication, kittens! Refreshing to see in these dismal days of the music "biz".

It's amazing considering Lady Marina has only managed one top 20 hit with "Hollywood". "Shampaign" could have easily been the first single.

IMHO, "Mowgli's Road" was thrown away as a teaser single much in the way "Under The Sheets" was for Ellie Goulding. Those songs clearly outshine much of the rest of the material on their respective longplayers. That's really saying something since both elpees are full of potential singles.

It remains to be seen if Marina's latest will improve upon the dizzying heights of the #38 placing reached by previous single, "Oh No!".

Let the "Shampaign" campaign begin! Oh, the genius of it.

  1. Shampain Campaign! I love it! I'm happy that Marina is mining this for singles. I could add Girls as a sixth to be honest :)
