Ahead of the release of her anarchic sophomore album I’m Not Your Man, due out 2nd June on AMF Records (Loyle Carner) and Sub Pop in the US, Marika Hackman unveils a new album track Cigarette. [Listen here]

I’m Not Your Man is not afraid to call out the big questions around femininity, sexual identity, millennial ennui, the pressures of living in a social media bubble and the perils of being young in a fast-paced world.

Having flexed her lyrical dexterity and punk musicianship on BBC 6 Music playlisted singles, Boyfriend and My Lover Cindy, one could be forgiven for not seeing curveball new track Cigarette coming. But Cigarette demonstrates brilliantly that a tender fragility still touches Marika’s music, who gained notoriety for her delicate and coolly unnerving 2015 debut We Slept At Last.

Marika has recently announced a co-headline US tour with best pals The Big Moon as well as UK dates with her newly formed live band, whose ebullient debut performance at The Great Escape was undoubtedly a festival highlight.
