Billie Marten is pleased to unveil the B-side to recent single “Milk & Honey.” Watch the video for “La Lune” here:

Accompanied by childhood footage compiled by Billie herself, the sublime “La Lune” is “a nostalgic nod to a time last summer where I really badly sunburnt my face, but also about instinctive feelings of being home, without the ‘heat’ of everything.”

Hailing from Ripon in North Yorkshire she has music in her blood, growing up listening to John Martyn, Laura Marling, David Bowie, Portishead and Loudon Wainwright, whom she saw in concert as a kid. At the age of eight, given a small, pink guitar and taught four chords by her dad, she wrote her first ‘proper’ song. Having gained widespread acclaim for an emotive lyricism that belies her tender years, Billie Marten appeared on the BBC’s Sound of 2016 long list earlier this year, in addition to having made her debut US performances at this year’s SXSW.

“La Lune” is available via Columbia Records in the US everywhere today, including iTunes and Spotify.
