English folk darling Laura Marling has released the first, titular track from her upcoming album Short Movie.
The album, which she produced herself with Matt Ingram and Dan Cox, will be Marling’s fifth album in seven years.
Marling’s sing-song vocals trip over the squiggly-animated clip. The video unfolds like a live-motion, watercolour painting, with a purple horse galloping across the parchment off-white backdrop, as a background picture slowly emerges.
Day turns to night as elfin-blonde Marling croons about “birds on the wind” along to the dainty, artsy clip created by London design and motion studio Art & Graft.
Short Movie will be released on March 23, 2015 via Virgin Records.
