After an excruciatingly long wait Greco-Welsh indie-pop songstress and sometime social commentator Marina And The Diamonds has finally revealed her new single "Primadonna". The track debuted today on BBC's Radio 1, followed shortly by online premiere of the song's full music video. Produced by decidedly non-indie superstar producer Dr Luke (the guy behind most of Katy Perry's hits, "Tik Tok", "Hold It Against Me"), it's the official first single from new album "Electra Heart".
For reasons I cannot fathom, the utterly fantastic, delicious slice of Pop cake "Radioactive" - one of the very best songs of the past year - has been sidelined as the record's first single and completely left off the tracklisting. Disappointing to say the least, but with "Primadonna" I've been coaxed back into her world. Admittedly it's no "Radioactive", but nevertheless a fantastic track, radio ready yet very Marina, complete with an incredibly giffable visual.
