A Song for the Day #111 – Marika Hackman


Anybody who reads the blog on a regular basis will know that I’m a Marika Hackman fan and so it was good to read that a new song from the forthcoming album was released today.

The track is titled ‘Ophelia’ and is very much in line with the rest of what we’ve heard from Hackman so far.  Another of her more sombre numbers that she does so very well.  The debut album will be released on the 16th of February and is titled We Sleep At Last.  Interestingly, none of the previous songs that she’s released via her ep’s will be available on the record.

Having seen Marika Hackman a number of times over 2014 it is unsurprising that her name is becoming more well known.  There was two of her own headline tours as well as slots supporting Alt J and The Antlers.  Hackman will be continuing her extensive touring later this year.  Tickets are available here from Friday (23rd Jan) and below is the list of places that she will be visiting:
