Welsh rocker, Marina and the Diamonds, is returning to the United States this winter for a headlining tour in support of her new album, Electra Heart. “The Lonely Hearts Club” tour will be at Boston’s House of Blues on Saturday, December 8 and will be accompanied by openers Icona Pop.
Electra Heart was Marina and the Diamonds’ second album after The Family Jewels and was released this past April. Collaborators on the album included Dr. Luke, Liam Howe, Greg Kurstin and Rick Nowels. The album reached No. 1 in Ireland and the UK with hit singles such as “Primadonna,” “Power & Control” and “How to Be a Heartbreaker.”
Marina spoke of the new album highly. “I wanted to challenge myself, I have consciously done everything I set out not to, originally,” she said. “Sing about Love. Work in the world of American Pop. Co-write. It was a really enjoyable period in my life. The music has energy and aggression and my vocals are much more controlled and detached… It’s lyrically quite bitter, but comically so. I love black humour.”
