The new music video is being filmed for American-exclusivetrack How To Be A Heartbreaker, it off sophomore album Electra Heart.
The UK album Marina and the Diamonds’ Electra Heart album has been tainted today, as Marina Diamandis’ has an extremely inflamed vocal chord and will be unable to sing until her throat has chilled the fu** out!
A doctor said that Marina must rest her voice for AT LEAST a month, lest she cause permanent damage.
Also sadly this effects he upcoming tour called Lonely Hearts Tour that was due to start this Friday in Manchester but the good thing out off all this is that Marina has been able to reschedule all of her May dates, except one!
Look below for the new dates and check out the new dates, and hopefully Marina will be back on stage where her diamond voice belongs, soon soon soon!

Marina and the Diamonds new album is called Electra Heart and she has said about it and said it’s an ode to dysfunctional love!
It was also said it was about a break up just like Adele but she doesn’t wanna play the victim!
Here’s what she said:
“I wanted to create a cold, ruthless character who wasn’t vulnerable. On my new songs, I wanted to flick the situation around. I didn’t want to come across as a victim. I’m not a bitch, but I wanted to expose that side of my character. I wanted to address the things that women don’t usually talk about. Nobody will admit to playing power games in relationships, but they do.”
Hell yeah! That sounds so fab!
We can’t wait for April 30th in that case, because she’s very, very proud of this album:
“My first album wasn’t a flop, but it wasn’t a wild success. This one is more assured, and I feel it will come to define my career. I’ve always been honest about my ambitions. There’s no shame in that. You need a certain level of narcissism to do this job.”
We are so happy to hear that!!

Marina and the Diamonds has announced her 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”
