Britain’s Laura Marling –
twice nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, for Alas, I Cannot Swim (2008) and I Speak
Because I Can (2010) – is the latest artist to take part in Third Man Records’ Blue Series of releases. The series of
limited edition 7-inch records, produced by Jack White and recorded at his own Third Man Studios in Nashville, has featured
releases from Wanda Jackson, The Black Belles and Secret Sisters.
For her Blue Series recording Laura Marling chose a pair of choice covers:
Jackson C Frank’s “Blues Run The
Game” and Neil Young’s “The
Needle And The Damage Done”. Marling and White recorded the tracks each
in a single take.
